Even as he's immersed in the Washington Capitals' playoff run, Dale Hunter has kept an eye on the London Knights, the junior team he co-owns along with his brother Mark. When the Caps beat the Boston Bruins in Game 7 of the first-round playoff series, Hunter smiled when told the Knights won, too.

Dale Hunter glows when talking about Jarred Tinordi. He coached the big defenseman for a season-plus with the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League.
The life span of an NHL coach is short, based on lack of success and the idea that his voice stops being heard.
"He's big and rangy, he can skate, he plays tough. He's got character. He's got that package together that's hard to come by," coach Mark Hunter said. "A lot of them can't skate at that size and he can get around the ice and he can play physical when he has to and stand up for his teammates. And he plays every night, hard."
"Not this good," coach Mark Hunter said in March. "We took off, our goaltender's been good, our D's been very good. We've got scoring; we're pretty young up front."
