Mike Babcock will once again be behind the bench when Canada tries to win gold again again in Olympic Hockey in 2014.

Joining Babcock on staff are Dallas Stars head coach Lindy Ruff, Boston Bruins' Claude Julien and St. Louis Blues Ken Hitchcock.

Babcock returns after leading the 2010 men's team to gold in Vancouver, a win that made him the only coach to achieve hockey's "Triple Gold" status: an Olympic gold medal, an IIHF World Championship and a Stanley Cup.

Ruff and Hitchcock were also members of Babcock's staff at the Vancouver Games.

Hockey Canada also confirmed there will be a National Men's Team orientation camp from Aug. 25-28 in Calgary.
