Corkum Coaching USA Team At Hlinka Tournament

Former UMaine hockey captain and assistant coach Bob Corkum is coaching the U.S. Under-18 Select team at the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament being played in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

Corkum’s USA team lost a thriller in the opening game, 3-2 in overtime to Finland.

USA got a game tying goal with two minutes left in regulation but Finland scored a powerplay goal just 59-seconds into OT to win it.

Corkum’s club will play game two of pool play Tuesday morning against Russia.

The international tournament is named after the late Ivan Hlinka. He is considered one the most important figures in Czech hockey history – one of the first to play in the NHL. Hlinka died in a car crash back in 2004 at the age of 54.

Bob Corkum was named interim coach of UMaine hockey when Tim Whitehead was released from his duties. Red Gendron was hired as new Black Bear head coach.. Corkum has since taken a job with the NHL’s New York Islanders.
