Mike Babcock will return as coach of Canada's Olympic hockey team.

ONE LAST GO-ROUND

Take a look back at the best fights from the 2012-13 season.

He will have Ken Hitchcock, Lindy Ruff and Claude Julien as assistants at next year's Sochi Games.

Julien is the only newcomer from the staff that led Canada to a gold medal at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver. The Boston Bruins coach replaces Jacques Lemaire.

Babcock coached the Detroit Red Wings to a Stanley Cup in 2008 and also led Canada to gold at the world championships in 2004.

He was behind the bench as Canada defeated the United States in overtime to win gold in Vancouver.

Monday's announcement by Hockey Canada comes after an agreement was reached to have NHL players participate in Russia.

Canada opens the games Feb. 13 against Norway.
