2 Cups

Considering what he meant to hockey, the city and the province, definitely notable loss for all.

1 Cup -coaching-legend-clare-drake/

..."Hitchcock recounted his own time as head coach of the late-’90s talent-laden Dallas Stars that he couldn’t quite push over the top.

He said a loss to the Edmonton Oilers in the 1997 playoffs prompted a call to Coach Drake.

“I leaned on Clare hard over those years,” said Hitchcock, who with Drake’s help would win the Stanley Cup in 1999. “We (as coaches) can’t thank Clare enough for what he did for us. "....

....the man touched a lot of lives in a positive way...leaves a great legacy...

No Cups

I just noticed he was born in Yorkton SK like me. He also coached the WHA Oilers.
