AP Source: Stars to hire Gulutzan as coach

Associated Press

DALLAS (AP) - The Dallas Stars have agreed to hire Glen Gulutzan as their next coach.

A person with knowledge of the talks tells The Associated Press that the deal is pending contract details being worked out. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the club had not announced the hiring.

Gulutzan has coached the club's top minor-league affiliate the last two seasons, reaching the finals in 2010 and the playoffs again this past season.

The Stars also interviewed Ken Hitchcock, the coach of their 1999 Stanley Cup champion club; Montreal assistant Kirk Muller, who was on the 2000 Dallas team that went to the Cup finals; and Nashville assistant coach Peter Horachek.

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
