Guy Boucher eyes NHL return after firing from Swiss team

Guy Boucher eyes NHL return after firing from Swiss team

Canda( By Jared Clinton )Former Tampa Bay Lightning coach Guy Boucher has found himself out of a job in Switzerland one week after stating it would be his final season coaching for SC Bern. SC Bern announced Wednesday that Boucher, who joined the club in January 2014, has been relieved of his duties as head coach and has been replaced by Lars Leuenberger. Bern had lost four straight games and sat in ninth place in the Swiss NLA. “The Board of Directors of [SC Bern] has…concluded that a continuation of the collaboration with Guy Boucher is not promising,” a team statement read. “The decision to separate from [Boucher] has nothing to do with his announcement to leave the SCB in spring.” Boucher had said in a release this past Wednesday that he had come to the decision with his family that it was time to return to North America, adding that he was relieved that he had made the choice to head home. “It has been a process within my family over a couple of months,” Boucher said in the release, via SwissHockeyNews.ch. “The decision has nothing to do with (SC Bern), where I feel very comfortable, nor with other professional perspectives.” In a statement released on SC Bern’s website, Boucher continued by saying his mother had been diagnosed with cancer and while she’s doing much better, he understands the importance of being closer to home to be able to be near his family. Boucher again addressed fans on SC Bern’s website Wednesday. In his statement, he said he understands the decision by the club to replace him with another coach and knew that when he announced it would be his final season the door was open for the team to replace him. “My wife, my children and I are very grateful for the wonderful experience that we experienced with the SCB and in Bern,” Boucher added. “I thank you all very much.” In speaking with TSN’s Bob McKenzie, Boucher said he “wants to coach in the NHL again.” According to reports, he came close to landing a job with the Toronto Maple Leafs this past off-season. However, when the Maple Leafs inked bench boss Mike Babcock to a monster eight-year deal, Boucher’s reported opportunity with Toronto fell by the wayside. That said, Boucher’s name is often one that comes up during coaching vacancies. With Todd Richards already being replaced in Columbus by John Tortorella, there aren’t many obvious candidates for replacement. One name that has been mentioned as potentially on the hot seat, however, has been Pittsburgh Penguins coach Mike Johnston. Johnston’s Penguins got off to a slow start this season, but have won seven of their past 10 games and are still in the thick of things in the Metropolitan Division. Boucher’s best bet will likely be to land a job in the off-season, but there’s still the possibility he finds himself in line for a gig if there’s a mid-season firing in the NHL. During his 195 games behind the bench with Tampa Bay, Boucher led the Lightning to an Eastern Conference final in his first season as coach. He posted a 97-78-20 record in Tampa Bay, but missed the playoffs in each of his final two seasons as Lightning bench boss, leading to his firing in 2013

ISLAMABAD (Championspk) Pakistani Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has on Monday said that Pakistan should never accept the offer to play cricket series in India. He said that it is impossible for Pakistan to keep singing the ballads of friendship despite continuous hate-mongering from the Indian side,

Talking informally to media at Punjab House in Islamabad, Chaudhry Nisar said that India’s treatment was unfair with former Foreign Minister Khurshid Mehmood Kasuri, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Shehryar Khan, PCB Chief Executive Najam Sethi and revered singer Ghulam Ali. “Why was there no action against anyone for such behaviour with Pakistanis in India?” questioned Nisar.

IOC announces emergency two million dollar fund to help refugees

IOC announces emergency two million dollar fund to help refugees

(Championspk)The International Olympic Committee today announced a two million dollar fund that will be made available to National Olympic Committees for programmes focused on refugees.

“We have all been touched by the terrible news and the heartbreaking stories in the past few days. With this terrible crisis unfolding across the Middle East, Africa and Europe, sport and the Olympic Movement wanted to play its part in bringing humanitarian help to the refugees. We made a quick decision that we needed to take action and to make this fund available immediately,” said the IOC President, Thomas Bach. “We have a long term relationship with the United Nations and with the UNHCR and we draw on their help and expertise. We know through experience that sport can ease the plight of refugees, many of them young people and children, be they in the Middle East, Africa, Europe or in other parts of the world. Our thoughts are with the many refugees risking their lives and the lives of their families to escape danger. ”

NOCs and other interested parties will be asked to submit projects to the IOC for funding. The fund itself is made up of one million dollars from the IOC and a further one million from Olympic Solidarity.

President Bach added that “because of the nature of the crisis the assessment of projects and the distribution of funds will be carried out extremely quickly. We are able to work on the ground with our partners in the National Olympic Committees and the expert agencies to get help to where it is needed most urgently.”

The IOC already works with a number of United Nations agencies to help refugees around the world. In April 2014 the two organizations signed a historic agreement aimed at strengthening collaboration.

The IOC has been working with the UNHCR for two decades and has already seen thousands of refugees benefit from sports programmes and equipment donated by the IOC.

Last year IOC Honorary President Jacques Rogge completed his first mission as Special Envoy of the United Nations (UN) Secretary-General for Youth Refugees and Sport.

With the goal of raising awareness on the conditions of youth refugees and the impact of sport for their well-being, Rogge visited Syrian refugees currently living in the UN camp of Azraq, located in the desert 100 kilometres east of the Jordanian capital, Amman. The camp currently hosts more than 5,000 shelters housing some 18,000 refugees.
