Brad McCrimmon won't return to Wings
DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings have made a change on their coaching staff.
The team announced Thursday that assistant coach Brad McCrimmon won't be back next season. McCrimmon's contract expired last week when Detroit was eliminated by the San Jose Sharks in their Western Conference semifinal.
He was a Red Wings defenseman from 1990 to 1993 during his 18-year career with six NHL teams.
