The Chicago Blackhawks have named Jamie Kompon assistant coach.
Kompon spent the last six seasons as an assistant with the Los Angeles Kings.
“We are excited to add Jamie as assistant coach and certainly welcome the Stanley Cup pedigree he brings,” ‘Hawks GM Stan Bowman said in a release. “He has over 15 years of NHL coaching experience and some obvious familiarity with our staff, having worked under [head coach] Joel [Quenneville] and [assistant coach] Mike [Kitchen] in St. Louis, which will help our staff and players with the transition.”
Kompon replaces Mike Haviland, who was fired at the end of the season.
