New Ducks coach visits town

By John P. Wise

        New Cincinnati Mighty Ducks coach Mike Babcock held his first press conference Wednesday and promised an aggressive style of play for the AHL club.

        “Our guys are going to go after the puck,” Babcock said. “We're going to come to play hard and compete every night.”

        Babcock said he hasn't had a chance to talk in person to any of the Ducks on the roster. He is, however, quite familiar with several. Goalie Aren Miller, forward B.J. Young and defenseman Jesse Wallin, all Detroit Red Wings prospects, played for or against Babcock-coached teams in the past.
