According to TSN Senior Correspondent Gary Lawless, former head coach Darryl Sutter told him that he's "staying in the game," but plans to be picky about the situation and needs the right fit.

Sutter, 58, was fired on Apr. 10 after six seasons as head coach of the Los Angeles Kings. Sutter coached the team to two Stanley Cups in 2011-12 and 2013-14.

Lawless says that although the veteran coach has a championship pedigree, his next team doesn't have to be a contender and he's willing to go to a rebuilding franchise.

Sutter wants to make sure whatever he chooses, it's the right fit for him and his family, but he knows he's not ready to retire and feels he still has a lot to offer another franchise.

The Viking, Alta. native has a career record of 635-467-82 with the Chicago Blackhawks, San Jose Sharks, Calgary Flames and Kings.
