Hartley gets Flames job

Bob Hartley
Hartley, who coached the Colorado Avalanche to a 2001 Stanley Cup, was rumoured to be among the frontrunners for the Canadiens head coaching job.
The short list is believed to include Michel Therrien, Guy Carbonneau and Marc Crawford.

On the Wednesday night edition of L’Antichambre, Mario Tremblay predicted Therrien would get the Canadiens’ job.

Hartley had been at the Memorial Cup last week, serving as an “eye in the sky” assistant to his former junior and AHL player, Shawinigan head coach Éric Veilleux. But Hartley did not stick around for the victory celebrations.

He traveled from Shawinigan to Calgary for an early-week job interview with Flames general manager Jay Feaster.
