Ken Hitchcock
Head Coach

Ken Hitchcock was named the 24th head coach in St. Louis Blues history on Nov. 7, 2011. In 2013-14, the Edmonton, Alberta native led the Blues to their third consecutive playoff appearance while becoming the third coach in Blues history to notch 100 wins on Jan. 2 against Los Angeles. In 2011-2012, Hitchcock guided the club to its first Central Division title since 2000 and was named the NHL’s Jack Adams Award winner as the League’s best coach, becoming the fourth recipient in Blues history. He has compiled a 657-405-178 record in 1,240 regular season games with Columbus, Philadelphia, Dallas and St. Louis during his NHL coaching career. In 18 seasons behind the bench, he has led his teams to 12 Stanley Cup Playoff appearances, seven division titles and a trio of second place finishes, while recording at least 40 wins 11 times and 100 points on 10 occasions. He has also led his teams to a 72-64 record in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, including a 16-7 mark in 1998-99 when he guided the Dallas Stars to the Stanley Cup.

Hitchcock became the 11th coach in NHL history to record 600 wins on Apr. 16, 2013 at Vancouver and currently stands 7th on the all-time wins list. On Jan. 7, 2014 at Edmonton, he became the 12th coach in NHL history to coach in 1,100 games.

Hitchcock began his NHL coaching career as an assistant coach with the Flyers from 1990-93. He moved on to take over as head coach of the Dallas Stars midway through the 1995-96 season, and in 1996-97, led them to the Central Division title. That year, Dallas became just the ninth team in NHL history to go from last place to first place in one season. Overall, Hitchcock spent parts of seven seasons in Dallas, leading his teams to five Central Division titles, two President’s Trophies (1997-98, 1998-99) and two Western Conference championships (1999, 2000), in addition to the 1999 Stanley Cup. He was nominated for the Jack Adams Award three times (1997, 1998, 1999) and served as the Western Conference’s head coach in three All-Star Games (1997, 1998, 1999).

On May 14, 2002, he was named Flyers head coach and led the club to three-straight 100-point seasons from 2002-06, while capturing the Atlantic Division title in 2003-04 and advancing to the 2004 Eastern Conference Finals. On Mar. 21, 2006, Hitchcock guided the Flyers to a 2-1 win over New Jersey, becoming the fifth-fastest coach in NHL history to record 400 wins (736 games). He also served as an assistant coach for the Eastern Conference in the 2003 and 2004 All-Star Games.

Hitchcock has also represented Canada at numerous international competitions. He was named head coach of Team Canada for the 2008 World Championships and led the squad to the silver medal. He has served as an associate coach on five occasions (2002, 2004, 2006, 2010, 2014), including winning the gold medal at the 2002, 2010 and 2014 Winter Olympics. In addition, he served as an assistant coach on gold medal-winning squads at the 2002 World Championships and the 1987 World Juniors.
