Hitch***** hasn’t heard from Devils: report
Like any other job-seeker, Ken Hitch***** says he’s just waiting to hear back. Hitch*****, who last month expressed interest in coaching the Devils, on Tuesday told Northjersey.com he hasn’t been contacted by the team.
“I haven’t heard anything from New Jersey,” Hitch***** told the website. “I don’t know what’s going on with New Jersey.” The Dallas Morning News reported that Hith***** has interviewed for the Stars opening. Hitch***** coached Dallas to the Stanley Cup in 1999 and back to the Final in 2000 when they lost to New Jersey. The Devils could not convince Jacques Lemaire to return for another season behind the bench after he replaced John MacLean in December. Hitch*****’s named surfaced almost immediately after Lemaire resigned following the regular-season finale, and sources have said he is the preferred choice of Devils GM Lou Lamoriello.
