(AP) Mike Babcock has done it all, becoming the first coach to win a Stanley Cup, Olympic gold and world championship.


And still, Babcock relentlessly strives for more success because he says it is "fun" to accomplish anything that is hard to do.


The Detroit Red Wings and Team Canada coach has a gold medal he was given after the 2010 Olympics in his home office, but says he doesn't spend a lot of time thinking about it because the present is more important than the past.


In the near future, Babcock will try to help the Canadians become the first team to earn consecutive gold medals and to win three overall since the NHL began letting its players participate in the 1998 Olympics.
