Paul Maurice Joins Team Canada Coaching Staff For 2014 IIHF Men\'s World Championship
The Winnipeg Jets Hockey Club is proud to announce that Jets Head Coach Paul Maurice will join the coaching staff for the 2014 Canadian Men\u2019s National Team.

The Winnipeg Jets Hockey Club is proud to announce that Jets Head Coach Paul Maurice will join the coaching staff for the 2014 Canadian Men’s National Team. The team will compete at the International Ice Hockey Federation Men’s World Championship May 9-25, 2014 in Minsk, Belarus.

Maurice, 47, joined the Winnipeg Jets on Jan. 12/14 and accumulated an 18-12-5 record in 35 games. As a result, he has earned a career NHL coaching record of 478-469-172 after 1119 games between the Carolina Hurricanes/Hartford Whalers, Toronto Maple Leafs and Winnipeg Jets. The native of Sault Ste. Marie, Ont. has never coached internationally with Hockey Canada, but does have international experience, serving as head coach of the KHL’s Metallurg Magnitogorsk in 2012-13.

Maurice won his 400th career NHL game when the Hurricanes defeated the Buffalo Sabres in overtime on Feb. 11, 2010, and on Nov. 28, 2010, he became the 19th coach, and the youngest in history, to coach 1,000 NHL games. In his first head coaching stint with the Hurricanes, Maurice guided Carolina to the 2002 Eastern Conference title and two Southeast Division crowns as well as four consecutive winning seasons from 1998-2002. On March 16, 2010, he became just the 10th coach in NHL history to spend more than 800 games behind the bench for one franchise.

Prior to re-joining the Hurricanes, Maurice collected a record of 76-66-22 during two full seasons as Head Coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs from 2006-08. Maurice earned a career-high in wins with Toronto during the 2006-07 season, leading the Maple Leafs to 40 victories, and recording his 300th NHL victory on March 6, 2007.

Prior to moving to the NHL level during the summer of 1995 as an Assistant Coach with the Whalers, Maurice spent two seasons as Head Coach of the Ontario Hockey League’s Detroit Jr. Red Wings. While in Detroit, he compiled a regular-season record of 86-38-8 and led the team to the 1995 OHL Championship and an appearance in the Memorial Cup in Kamloops, B.C. That season, he finished second in voting to Guelph’s Craig Hartsburg for the Matt Leyden Trophy, which is annually awarded to the OHL’s Coach of the Year.

Maurice played his junior hockey with the OHL’s Windsor Spitfires (1984-1988). He was Philadelphia’s 12th choice, 252nd overall, in the 1985 NHL entry draft. Maurice had his career cut short due to an eye injury, and began coaching as an assistant with the Jr. Red Wings shortly thereafter.
