Coach Conference Welcomes Hitchcock

June 20, 2012—The Coaches Site is excited to announce that Ken Hitchcock, head coach of the St. Louis Blues, will be a keynote speaker at the second annual 2012 Coaches Conference.

“It is an incredible honour to welcome Ken Hitchcock to this year’s coaching conference,” says The Coaches Site’s managing director and organizer of the Hockey Coaches Conference, Aaron Wilbur. “At every stage of his career he has demonstrated his talent for motivating players to perform at their best. His record reflects that, as do the number of championships and individual accolades. We are pleased to offer a stage for Ken to share his experience with amateur coaches from across North America.”

Ken recently took over as head coach for the St. Louis Blues early in the 2011/12 season, leading them to the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. When he took over as head coach in November 2011, the team’s record was 6-7-0. By year’s end, the club went on to break 13 franchise records, including fewest goals against, the fewest shots per game and the most shutouts.He is widely credited with turning the team around.

Hitchcock was recognized for his exceptional leadership this season and is once again nominated for the prestigious Jack Adams Award. Awarded annually to the NHL’s top coach, the Jack Adams will be handed out tonight, June 20th at the NHL Awards Show in Las Vegas.

In addition to 30 years of coaching experience, his impressive list of accomplishments include winning the Stanley Cup in Dallas in 1998, being a member of Team Canada’s staff and winning Gold at the 2002 & 2010 Olympics and capturing WHL championships with Kamloops in 86 & 90. In 1990 he was named the CHL Coach of the Year.

The two-day conference will be held at the Delta Hotel and Conference Centre in Burnaby, BC on July 20-21, 2012. The event will focus on coaching strategies, conditioning and skill development in an interactive environment. The format will consist of presentations, workshops and breakout sessions.
