Is Craig MacTavish Headed To Edmonton?

Vancouver, B.C. – Vancouver Canucks President & General Manager Mike Gillis announced today that Craig MacTavish will leave his role as Head Coach of the Canucks American Hockey League affiliate, the Chicago Wolves to pursue other opportunities.

“Craig brought a tremendous amount of experience and expertise as Head Coach of the Wolves this past season,” said Mike Gillis. “We were pleased to have him as a member of our organization and wish him continued success in the future.”

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,

I keep hearing that Craig MacTavish is returning to the Oilers, not to coach, but in, say, the hockey ops department.

The Oilers won’t comment yea or nay on whether MacTavish, who left the Oilers in 2009 after coaching them for eight years, could return in some capacity.
