Wings to Hire Babcock

No formal announcement has been made but TSN in Canada reports that former Mighty Ducks of Anaheim head coach has agreed to become the next head coach of the Detroit Red Wings. Babcock will replace Dave Lewis, who the Red Wings announced would not be returning to the team last week.

Babcock declined an offer for a one-year deal with Anaheim last week and was immediately linked with Detroit.

Reportedly, a contract has not been signed but the coach and the team have agreed to the terms it will include.
