Mike Babcock

University of Saskatchewan

Babcock joins the Huskies after spending the past 17 seasons in the NHL, including guiding the Detroit Red Wings to the Stanley Cup championship in 2008 and coaching Canada to back-to-back Olympic gold medals in 2010 and 2014. Babcock is the only coach in hockey history to have won the Stanley Cup, Olympic gold, the World Cup, the world hockey championship and the world junior championship.

Babcock previously coached collegiate hockey at Red Deer College from 1988-1991 and for one season in 1993-94 when he led the University of Lethbridge to the national championship, which he refers to as his “best work.” He spent eight years coaching junior in the WHL before moving on to the professional ranks for 19 seasons, serving behind the bench for the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks, Anaheim Mighty Ducks, Detroit Red Wings, and Toronto Maple Leafs. He has since served as a hockey analyst with NBC Sports and as a volunteer advisor with the University of Vermont hockey program.
