The Malik Report

Interesting late-night news from TSN and Pierre LeBrun:
When the Canadian Men's hockey team takes the ice at the Sochi 2014 Winter Games, they will have some familiar faces behind the bench.
TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com is reporting that Detroit Red Wings head coach Mike Babcock, the man that led Canada to gold at the Vancouver 2010 Games, will once again be the team's bench boss.
LeBrun is also reporting that St. Louis Blues head coach Ken Hitchcock and former Buffalo Sabres head coach Lindy Ruff will return as associate coaches.
The staff will be rounded out by Boston Bruins head coach Claude Julien.
Babcock captured the Stanley Cup with the Detroit Red Wings in 2008; he also coached Canada to gold at the 1997 and 2004 IIHF World Championships.

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
