Dale Hunter, 51-year-old former NHL center for the Quebec Nordiques, Washington Capitals and Colorado Avalanche from 1980-1999, made his debut behind the bench as a head coach for the first time on Tuesday night.

He spent the past 11 years coaching in the Ontario Hockey League before the Washington Capitals elevated him to head coach replacing Bruce Boudreau.

The Capitals played better defense, but Hunter’s NHL coaching debut was spoiled by the St. Louis Blues, 2-1.

The Blues have the stingiest defense in the league and are limiting star scorers to 1 or 2 shots a game.

St. Louis is 8-1-2 since Ken Hitchcock took over as head coach on November 7 for Davis Payne.

The Blues have only allowed 13 goals in Hitchcock’s 11 games behind the bench.

Chris Drury has decided to retire from the National Hockey League after 12 seasons.

He was unable to sign with a new team after the New York Rangers bought out the final year of their captain’s contract back in June.

Drury was the 72nd overall pick of the Quebec Nordiques in 1994.

He has also played for Colorado, Calgary and Buffalo. The Quebec Nordiques are now the Colorado Avalanche.

In 892 career games in the NHL,  Drury scored 255 goals and garnered 615 points. He scored 47 game-winning goals in the regular season, but he was always making big plays in the postseason, where he scored 17 of his 47 goals in 135 games which were winners.

The 35-year-old center struggled during his final season with the Rangers, as injuries limited him to just 24 games.

Foote, a former Blue Jackets captain, who fell out of disfavor with Columbus fans when he asked to be traded while the team was involved in a playoff chase, announced the final week of the season that he would be retiring after 19 seasons in the National Hockey League. Foote played 17 seasons with the Avalanche-Quebec Nordiques franchise.
