Would an NHL team consider hiring Mike Babcock as a coach?

That question popped up Thursday when Babcock resigned as head men’s hockey coach at the University of Saskatchewan.

Babcock, 59, has an impressive NHL resume. It includes 17 seasons as a head coach, a Stanley Cup championship (2008) and two Olympic gold medals as Canada’s coach (2010 and 2014). But he has been out of the NHL since the 2019-20 season when the Toronto Maple Leafs fired him after 23 games.

His reputation has also been beat up by accusations of player mistreatment in both Toronto and Detroit.
