Former Ducks and U.S. national team coach Ron Wilson is in rehabilitation following a recent stroke, according to several friends.

Wilson, 61, was the original coach of the Mighty Ducks, from their incarnation in 1993-94 through the 1996-97 season. He also coached the Washington Capitals, San Jose Sharks and Toronto Maple Leafs, compiling a 648-561-91 record.

Wilson coached the U.S. in numerous international competitions, including an upset win against Canada in the 1996 World Cup of Hockey. He was the U.S. coach in the 1998 and 2010 Winter Olympics, guiding the latter team to the silver medal after an overtime loss to Canada in a memorable final.

Wilson joined TSN as an analyst in 2015. He lives in South Carolina.
