Bowman releases statement on Cheveldayoff
With the news that Kevin Cheveldayoff, who had been serving as assistant general manager/senior director, hockey operations for the Chicago Blackhawks, would become the general manager of the new Winnipeg NHL franchise, Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman released the following statement:

"Kevin has informed me he has accepted the Executive Vice-President/General Manager position offered to him by True North Sports & Entertainment. While it is never easy to lose someone of his caliber, it is a great opportunity for him and his family. He was a significant part of our front office and he played an integral role in the success of the Blackhawks throughout the last two years. I want to personally thank him for his dedication to our organization and certainly wish him all the best in Winnipeg."
Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
