Rumor: Willie Dejardins New Dallas Stars Assistant Coach?

Windsorstar.com this morning had a short blurb that Willie Dejardins,coach of the Medicine Hat Tigers is the favorite to be the Dallas Stars new assistant head coach.

Willie Desjardins, the Medicine Hat Tigers bench boss who coached Team Canada at the 2010 world juniors in Saskat-chewan, is a leading candidate to join the Dallas Stars as an assistant coach, sources told The Pipeline Show bloggers Dean Millard and Guy Flaming.

Marc Crawford employed Stu Barnes, Charlie Huddy, and Andy Moog last year as assistant coaches. Barnes and Moog split time between the bench and the General Managers box. It was announced in early May that Andy Moog and the Stars had come a mutual agreement/parting of the ways and he will not return next season.

Said the Morning News in May...

``It was a situation where Andy was ready to move on and we discussed some things and just came to a mutual decision,'' Nieuwendyk said.

Moog agreed: ``I think we both agreed it was time to try something else. It was just something where there are things they want to do and things they need to try.''

Dejardins is a veteran coach of the Canadian junior leagues, and he was the head coach for Team Canada's World Junior team this past winter when the United States took the gold medal in Saskatchewan. He has coached the Medicine Hat Tigers for 8 season and been their general manager for 5.

You can see his bio here at their official web site.
