Tampa Bay Lightning head coach Guy Boucher has accepted an offer to serve as an assistant coach with Team Canada at the IIHF men's hockey world championship, slated to be held in both Helsinki and Stockholm, May 4-20. Rounding out the coaching staff is head bench boss Brent Sutter, who parted ways with the Calgary Flames this week and assistant Kirk Muller of the Carolina Hurricanes.
