DETROIT (CBS DETROIT) – Led by the Detroit Red Wings’ Mike Babcock, the coaching staff that took Canada to the Olympic gold in hockey in 2010 is going for a repeat, according to SI.com.

Babcock won a gold medal  in Vancouver with a staff of the Boston Bruins’ Claude Julien, the St. Louis Blues’ Ken Hitchcock, the Dallas Stars’ Lindy Ruff and the Edmonton Oilers’ Ralph Krueger. With the exception of Krueger, everyone is back for a run at another first-place finish.

That pursuit is scheduled to begin Feb. 13, 2014, in Sochi, Russia, with a tournament game against Norway.
