Dan Bylsma to coach US Olympic team
USA taps David Poile, Dan Bylsma for Olympic roles
USA Hockey is putting the band back together for the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia, although the members will have a different place on the stage.
According to two people with knowledge of the decision, the Nashville Predators' David Poile will be the team's general manager, while Pittsburgh Penguins Ray Shero will be his associate general manager and Anaheim Ducks consultant Brian Burke will be the director of player development.
Penguins coach Dan Bylsma has been selected to be the USA's coach in Sochi.
The two people spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity because the official announcement will come Saturday in New York, the day before the NHL draft in Newark.
Burke was the general manager of the U.S. team when it won the silver medal at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, and Poile was his associate general manager. Shero was on the committee of team executives who helped Burke pick the team.
