Darryl Sutter is taking a break from ranching and making a return to the NHL.
Sutter most recently coached the Los Angeles Kings in 2016-17 before being let go at the end of the season. He guided the Kings to two Stanley Cups in six seasons in charge.
The 60-year-old from Viking, Alta., served as general manager of the Calgary Flames from 2003 to 2010 and coached the team from 2002 to ’06.
Calgary reached the Stanley Cup Final in 2004 under Sutter’s watch before falling to the Tampa Bay Lightning.
