KAMLOOPS, B.C. - The young men vying for a spot on Canada's junior hockey team know their coach's storied legacy.

They know Tim Hunter spent 15 seasons playing in the NHL as an enforcer in Calgary, Quebec, Vancouver and San Jose. They know he won a Stanley Cup with the Flames in 1989, an entire decade before any of them were born.

And they know Hunter's now sharing his experience with young players, working to shape the next generation of hockey greats.

"We all know his history and what he did for the game. So it's really nice to have him behind the bench. He gives great advice for young players, just how to develop and feel comfortable out there," said Antoine Morand, a forward who's hoping to make Canada's squad this winter.

Vikings offensive line coach Sparano died of heart disease

  Vikings offensive line coach Sparano died of heart disease A county medical examiner says Minnesota Vikings offensive line coach Tony Sparano died of heart disease. The Hennepin County medical examiner's office said Monday that the 56-year-old Sparano died of arteriosclerotic heart disease, or hardening of the arteries. The manner of death is listed as natural.

Hunter said moving into the head coach role will mean being more of an “eye in the sky,” letting other coaches and staff do their jobs, and being patient when it comes to lines and systems. Thirty-nine players are on Hunter ’s current roster in Kamloops, and the coach said he’s working on developing a

The 57-year-old Calgarian was named head coach of the team last month after being an assistant coach with the squads that took home silver from the 2017 world junior hockey championship and gold from the 2018 tournament. This week, the new role has him in Kamloops, B.C., where Canada is taking part in the world junior hockey showcase.

"Any time you're involved with Hockey Canada, it's a real honour and a real thrill," Hunter said of the promotion.

The Canadians lost only one game in last year's tournament, dropping a preliminary match against the U.S. 4-3 in a shootout.

The country has won gold 17 times in the 42-year history of the world men's under-20 championship, but Hunter said its past successes don't put extra pressure on this year's team. He said every player already goes in wanting to win it all.

Colts' head coach Reich plans to play Luck in preseason opener

  Colts' head coach Reich plans to play Luck in preseason opener Expect to see Andrew Luck in game action sooner rather than later. Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich reaffirmed how pleased the team is with its star quarterback's health, telling reporters Wednesday he "would plan on him playing in Seattle" in their first preseason game, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Reich confirmed there will be "no restrictions" when Luck practices, but the Colts signal-caller will have scheduled days off throughout training camp. The first of those breaks will come Saturday, allowing him to fully participate in Indianapolis' first padded team practice Sunday.

A head coach , senior coach , or manager is a professional at training and developing athletes. They typically hold a more public profile and are paid more than other coaches . In some sports, the head coach is instead called the "manager", as in association football and professional baseball.

"I want to make sure that we give ourselves the best chance to be in a medal game in January, and play and compete and show the pride of the country in the way we play."

Maxime Comtois was a forward on the gold-medal winning team and said it's nice to have Hunter back.

"He's a really good coach," said Comtois. "He played a lot, played in the NHL. He knows what we feel on the ice, off the ice, so it's nice to have him behind the bench."

Hunter said moving into the head coach role will mean being more of an "eye in the sky," letting other coaches and staff do their jobs, and being patient when it comes to lines and systems.

Thirty-nine players are on Hunter's current roster in Kamloops, and the coach said he's working on developing a unique mindset and style, while still playing the highly skilled game the country is known for.

"It's summer hockey, but we're still trying to win and put a template in place to play fast and play the Canadian way," he said.

Pair of vets lead Canadian junior hockey roster

  Pair of vets lead Canadian junior hockey roster Alex Formenton and Maxime Comtois know what it takes to capture world junior hockey gold and now they're sharing their wisdom with a whole new squad. Both of the young forwards were part of the Canadian team that captured the championship in Buffalo, N.Y., last January. They each keep the championship rings they earned next to their beds, a hefty memento to provide daily motivation. "Every time I wake up, I just want to be better than I was the day before," Comtois said Monday in Kamloops, B.C., where he's on the Canadian roster at this summer's world junior showcase.

The head coach of the WHL's Moose Jaw Warriors, Hunter was part of a Canadian staff that won gold at the world junior in Buffalo last January. The 57-year-old Hunter will be joined by assistant coaches Marc-Andre Dumont of the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles, Jim Hulton of the Charlottetown Islanders

Hunter has been coaching since he wrapped up a playing career that saw him put up 138 points and 3,146 penalty minutes in 815 NHL games.

He spent 15 years as an assistant in the league then moved on to developing younger players. For the past four years, he's been leading the WHL's Moose Jaw Warriors.

Given his background, coaching just made sense, Hunter said.

"I've got a lot of experience and that experience isn't really of use unless you use it and talk to these young men every day about little things, how to get better both as a person and as a player," he said.

Jett Woo plays for Hunter in Moose Jaw and said he's taken lessons from his coach's time in the NHL.

"He was a pretty gritty player, a hard-working player, and I think those are the things I've been able to pick up playing for him — hard work and compete level," said the young defenceman.

Woo said Hunter will take the time to sit with players, going over video and explaining what they need to work on.

He added off the ice, the coach is a fun guy to talk to and is always ready to crack a joke.

"I've been able to kind of learn things about him and he's been able to learn things about me. To have that connection and understanding between each other, that's grown over the past couple years and that's shown," he said.

Hunter said developing tight bonds is key to getting players to perform on the ice, noting that he always gets to know his guys both as a person and as a player.

"You can't have a successful organization or high-level performance team without knowing everyone on the team and their challenges or their wants and needs," he said.

Those relationships continue after a player has left Hunter's team. He stays in contact with a lot of the players he's mentored and sometimes brings them in to talk to his players.

The coaching style has worked for Woo, who said that Hunter has helped him grow into a better player and develop his game to the fullest.

"I can't say enough good things about him," he said.
