Report: Gulutzan to be next coach in Dallas
A report in 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."
