Celebrity Updates: Bradley Cooper, Senators, Bob Seger and Conan O’Connell

In the hockey world, Lightning head coach Jon Cooper is gearing up for some additional responsibilities. According to a report from Pierre LeBrun in The Athletic, Cooper will be appointed as Canada’s head coach for the upcoming 4 Nations Cup and the 2026 Olympic Games. This news comes after Hockey Canada considered having separate coaches for each event, but ultimately decided against to remain one coach, similar to the United States’ choice of Mike Sullivan. Cooper has previous international coaching experience, having led Team Canada at the 2017 World Cup, coached Team North America at the World Cup and served as an assistant for the U.S. at the 2007 Ivan Hlinka Memorial tournament.

We continue with other news from the Atlantic Division:

– Ottawa Senators Senior Vice President Dave Poulin revealed the team has received trade interest in their seventh overall selection. This comes after a disappointing season for the Senators, who failed to earn a playoff spot and underwent management and coaching changes. The team also faces a fine for not disclosing a player’s no-trade clause in a trade with Vegas, but they strategically decided not to forfeit their early first-round pick this year.

– AHL Grand Rapids, the Red Wings’ farm team, has signed college free agent Gabriel Seger to a one-year contract. Seger, who had an impressive senior season at Cornell University, will look to make an impact in the AHL after failing to land an NHL deal.

– Albie O’Connell, associate coach at Arizona State University, is reportedly leaving the program to pursue an NHL opportunity. Sources suggest O’Connell will join the Canadiens, marking his second stint with the organization. He previously worked as a college scout for Montreal before returning to the NCAA ranks.

These updates provide a glimpse into the ever-evolving world of hockey, as coaches, players and teams take steps to shape the future of the sport. Stay tuned for more developments as the offseason progresses.
