Report: Gulutzan to be next coach in Dallas
Report: Gulutzan to be next coach in Dallas
A report in ESPNDallas.com cites a source as saying the Dallas Stars will hire Glen Gulutzan as its next coach.

Gulutzan, 39, has spent the last two seasons as coach of the Texas Stars, Dallas' American Hockey League affiliate. The team made the playoffs both seasons, including a trip to the Calder Cup finals in 2009-10.

If hired, Gulutzan would replace Marc Crawford, who was fired following the end of this past season after two years behind the bench.

According to the ESPN report, Gulutzan was one of four candidates interviewed by General Manager Joe Nieuwendyk. The others were Montreal Canadiens assistant coach Kirk Muller, Nashville Predators assistant coach Peter Horacheck and former Stars coach Ken Hitchcock. Despite the report, Nieuwendyk was mum on the subject when asked about it Monday.

"We do not have a new coach," Nieuwendyk said. "I have not made any announcement yet, but will at the end of the week. The Mavericks just won, so Dallas is celebrating."
Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
