Marc Crawford fell short in whatever NHL head coaching races he was in this summer, but that won’t stop him from making big moves for a hockey club. Darren Dreger reports that Crawford will coach the Zurich ZSC Lions, a team that’s located in Zurich, Switzerland.
(The full name for the ZSC Lions is: Zürcher Schlittschuh Club Lions, by the way.)
Crawford spent the last season as an analyst for TSN after being fired following the 2010-11 season with the Dallas Stars. Crawford coached the Quebec Nordiques/Colorado Avalanche for four seasons, the Vancouver Canucks for seven and the Los Angeles Kings and Dallas Stars for two seasons apiece.
Beyond scratching that itch, you have to wonder if this sojourn in Switzerland will help him scrap his way back to the NHL. Do you think we’ll see him as a head coach again?
