CALGARY, Alberta (AP)—Buffalo Sabres coach Lindy Ruff will lead the Canadian team at the world championships.
Ruff just completed his 11th season with the Sabres. This is his first time to coach the Canadian national team.
Nashville coach Barry Trotz and Dallas’ Dave Tippett will serve as assistants.
Canada opens the world championships against Belarus on April 24 in Switzerland.
The team’s initial roster is expected to be announced Monday.I obviously wish he were instead coaching the Sabres through the playoffs, but this will have to do. Congratulations to him for getting the honor!
Also, happy Easter to my blog friends and those who bother to stop by here every now and then. I should have Part One up later of what I learned yesterday from my brother about wanting to be a journalist.
