Eastern Conference (NHL)
The EASTERN CONFERENCE (French : Conférence de l'Est) is one of two conferences in the National Hockey League (NHL) used to divide teams. Its counterpart is the Western Conference . Previously known as the PRINCE OF WALES CONFERENCE (or WALES CONFERENCE for short), it was created in 1974 when the NHL realigned its teams into two conferences and four divisions. Because the new conferences and divisions had little to do with North American geography, geographical references were removed. The conference was instead named for the Prince of Wales Trophy .. The current champions are the Pittsburgh Penguins , winning in 2016–17 . The Prince of Wales Trophy dates back to 1925, when it was donated to the League by the then-current Prince of Wales , who later became King Edward VIII . It was originally given to the NHL's champion

Coach (ice Hockey)
COACH in ice hockey is the person responsible for directing the team during games and practices, prepares strategy and decides which players will participate in games. The specific responsibilities of a coach vary according to the level at which they are coaching. For example, unique to coaching at the professional level , coaches need to have skills in dealing with the media. At the professional level, as each game is given great importance, a coach will analyse past games and prepare for future games. Coaches also are important in determining the style of hockey the team plays. While winning is a primary responsibility at the professional level, at the other extreme of minor hockey , teaching is given greater importance. In the case of coaching of youth hockey, while strategy and tactics are still required, there would be the added responsibility of teaching fundamental skills and the rules of the game, providing a fun and safe environment, developing character, teaching physical fitness and the ability to communicate in a positive manner.

Captain (ice Hockey)
In ice hockey , the CAPTAIN is the player designated by his team as the only person authorized to speak with the game officials regarding rule interpretations when he is on the ice. At most levels of play each team must designate one captain and a number of ALTERNATE CAPTAINS (usually two) who speak to the officials when the captain is on the bench. The captain wears a "C" on his sweater , while the alternate captains wear an "A". Officially the captain has no other responsibility or authority, although he may, depending on the league or individual team, have various informal duties, such as participation in pre-game ceremonies or other events outside the game. As with most team sports that designate captains , the captain is usually a well-respected player and a de facto team leader.
