When the Canadian Men's hockey team takes the ice at the Sochi 2014 Winter Games, they will have some familiar faces behind the bench.

TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com is reporting that Detroit Red Wings head coach Mike Babcock, the man that led Canada to gold at the Vancouver 2010 Games, will once again be the team's bench boss.

LeBrun is also reporting that St. Louis Blues head coach Ken Hitchcock and former Buffalo Sabres head coach Lindy Ruff will return as associate coaches.

The staff will be rounded out by Boston Bruins head coach Claude Julien.

Babcock captured the Stanley Cup with the Detroit Red Wings in 2008; he also coached Canada to gold at the 1997 and 2004 IIHF World Championships.
