Dale Hunter Quits as NHL Capitals’ Coach After Loss to Rangers

May 14 (Bloomberg) -- Dale Hunter resigned as coach of the Washington Capitals, two days after the team was eliminated by the New York Rangers in the second round of the National Hockey League playoffs.

Hunter, who joined the team as coach in November from the Ontario Hockey League’s London Knights, “wanted to return to his family” in Ontario, Capitals spokesman Sergey Kocharov said in an e-mail.

Hunter’s move “wasn’t unexpected,” Capitals General Manager George McPhee told the Washington Post.

Hunter, who played for the Capitals from 1987 to 1999, guided the team to a 37-23-7 record after replacing the fired Bruce Boudreau. The team upset the Boston Bruins, last season’s Stanley Cup champions, in the first round of the playoffs before losing to New York.
