because all of the coaches who are qualified enough to coach in the nhl are male
Former NHL player Doug Shedden currently coaches EV Zug, but I don't believe he actually played in the Swiss league.
Coyotes Goalie coach (Grant Fuhr) is black.
Currently Mike Babcock of the Detroit Red Wings and Alain Vigneault of the New York Rangers are paid $2,000,000 for their salaries. These two coaches are shown as the highest because their salaries are made public. Many NHL head coaches salaries are undisclosed to the public.
yes there is!!
So that players and coaches can yell at each other more easily
Charlie currently works for Sikorsky Aircraft in CT and coaches hockey in Bridgeport
there has never been a female nhl players. There has been I believe on two occasions a female goalie invited to camp, perhaps played in preseason...but both times alot of goals were allowed and from what I understand never a real interest in signing either of them to contracts.
The number of assistant coaches varies from team to team but here is what I understand the standard most teams carry. There are two assistant coaches on the bench along with the head coach. One assistant is for offense and the other for defense. There is also a goaltending coach who watches the game from a pressbox, "bird's eye" view and sometimes does doubles as the video coach. There is also a strength and conditioning coach. I have heard of teams carrying additional coaches for developing propects and are assigned to the minors and junior teams.
No friend around me
The red "zero" the NHL coaches (most of whom are Canadian) wear around this time of the year is a poppy. Wearing a poppy is a Canadian tradition in November to memorialize Canada's war dead. The poppy is worn until November 11 (Remembrance Day).
