The Washington Capitals announced Monday morning that head coach Dale Hunter will not return to the team to coach next season. Hunter resigned on Monday after a meeting with Caps GM George McPhee and after speaking with his family about whether or not to return. The OHL team that Hunter owns and used to coach, the London Knights, are in the Memorial Cup tournament, and Hunter will go back and watch from a suite. ”I’m a fan,” he said.
“Im going home,” said Hunter. ”To the team, to the farm. To my family.”
