Former Habs coach Guy Carbonneau given job with Canada's under-18 team

CALGARY - Guy Carbonneau is heading back behind the bench.

The former coach of the Montreal Canadiens will lead Canada's entry into the world under-18 championship next month in Belarus.

Carbonneau has been working as an analyst on CBC's "Hockey Night in Canada" since being let go by the Habs last season.

He is the fourth coach in five years to lead the under-18 team after having previously been an NHL head coach, joining Greg Gilbert (2006), Trent Yawney (2007) and Pat Quinn (2008).

Mike Johnston of the WHL's Portland Winter Hawks led the team to a fourth-place finish last year.

Canada opens this year's tournament with a game against Switzerland on April 13 in Bobruisk, Belarus.
