Jody Hull was named by Hockey Canada as coach for the 2014 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Cup, to be held Aug. 11-16 in Slovakia and the Czech Republic.

Hull, coach of the Peterborough Petes of the Ontario Hockey League, was slated to be an assistant coach. He replaces Derek Laxdal, who was hired as coach of the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League on July 3.

Quote of the Day

I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
