Hunter bides his time

Two of three coaches on the OHL bench for the London stop of the Canada-Russia Subway Super Series on Nov. 11 will be working this year’s world junior tournament.

Mississauga’s Dave Cameron is the Canadian junior team’s head coach in Buffalo and Belleville’s George Burnett is his assistant.

The third guy, the one who’s won more games and has been the OHL’s most successful coach the last decade, will be watching the tournament on TV again.

London Knights head coach Dale Hunter has never submitted an application to go for gold. Likewise, Hockey Canada has never twisted his arm to join the coaching staff.

The massive challenge, no doubt, intrigues him and he never outright dismisses his interest in it.
“If the timing’s right then maybe I’ll look at it down the road,” the 50-year-old Hunter said Thursday. “It’s an honour to be involved (with the Super Series) and it’s a good first step.”

Note: For 10 years Hunter has been developing talent to succeed at the NHL level. He helps teach all aspects of the game and prepares his players for the next level. Personally, I'm surprised he hasn't coached a Team Canada yet.
