Hockey Canada Announces Coaching Staff For 2016 World Cup Of Hockey

from Hockey Canada,

Mike Babcock will return to international competition in September as the Team Canada head coach at the World Cup of Hockey.

Babcock (Saskatoon, Sask./Toronto, NHL) joined Hockey Canada president and CEO, Tom Renney, and Team Canada’s general manager, Doug Armstrong, at a news conference on Thursday where it was confirmed he will take the helm as head coach when the World Cup of Hockey makes its return in Toronto in September 2016.

“We’re happy to have Mike lead our World Cup coaching staff next September. His successes in creating a winning culture in a two-week tournament are well documented,” said Armstrong. “We are looking forward to representing Canada and making our country proud.”

Joining Babcock on the coaching staff are a group of successful coaches who bring equally impressive credentials of their own. Armstrong and Renney announced that Claude Julien, Barry Trotz, Joel Quenneville, and Bill Peters will be working with Babcock as assistant coaches for Team Canada.

“Thanks to immense depth, Canada is able to tap into world-class coaching, and this group clearly demonstrates that,” said Renney.
