Another hockey nation has named its coach for the 2018 Olympics in South Korea.

According to John Shannon of Sportsnet, Slovakia has tabbed former NHL coach Craig Ramsay to be the bench boss for its national team and Olympic squad.

Ramsay was last an assistant coach with the Edmonton Oilers in 2014-15. His coaching experience in the NHL, which includes three stints as a head coach, dates all the way back to 1986-87 with the Buffalo Sabres.

Four years ago, Slovakia was defeated by the Czech Republic in the qualification playoff and failed to make it to the quarter-final round.
