Former Capitals Coach Dale Hunter To Coach London Knights Again

Following the conclusion of his playing career, Dale Hunter and his brother Mark became co-owners of the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League. Serving as coach since 2001, Hunter won the OHL Coach of the Year award three times before resigning from the position to serve as the head coach of the Capitals during the 2011-12 season.

Following a seven game loss to the Rangers in the second round of the NHL Playoffs, Hunter resigned from his position with the Capitals. Now, according to the London Free Press, Hunter is set to reassume his position as head coach of the Knights.

Hunter, who had been under NHL contract only for this past season, abruptly quit the Caps at the end of their run, saying he felt like he was needed most back at the "family business" with the Knights.

The Capitals have yet to name a replacement head coach and will likely do so after the NHL Draft.
