NHL coach Mike Babcock left the Detroit Red Wings to sign an unprecedented coaching deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs in May. His eight-year, $50 million contract means Babcock is peeling out of the Motor City for good.

And with the first puck drop just a couple of months away, the Stanley Cup -- winning coach is selling his home in Northville Township, MI.

Listed for $799,999, the 4,486-square-foot home is situated on a private wooded lot. The home has four bedrooms and plenty of living space.

The kitchen has wraparound cabinets and high-end appliances, and the living room has double-decker windows. The study, with its built-in shelves and dark wood paneling, is a space befitting the only coach in the International Ice Hockey Federation's Triple Gold Club.

The master suite is large and bright with tray ceilings, an impressive walk-in closet, and a massive bathroom with spa tub.
