Esa Tikkanen to coach Halla Winia
|The five-time Stanley Cup champion Esa Tikkanen will coach Halla Winia next season, tells Ilta-Sanomat. |
Five-time Stanley Cup winner Esa "Tiki" Tikkanen packs his bags and leaves for Seoul, South Korea to coach the reigning champion Halla Winia.
A later report says that Tikkanen and Halla Winia have differing opinions on what Tikkanen was supposed to do there. Halla expects him to mainly play, but Tikkanen says that there's no way his going there as a player. "It was clearly stated in the contract that it was about coaching" (Ilta-Sanomat).
