Blackhawks name Kompon assistant coach
Chicago Blackhawks name Jamie Kompon assistant coach.

The Chicago Blackhawks added Jamie Kompon to their coaching staff Tuesday.

Kompon, 45, spent the past six seasons as an assistant coach with the Los Angeles Kings, where he helped them capture the 2012 Stanley Cup. While with the Kings organization, he also served as director of amateur development. Before joining L.A., he spent nine years (1997-2006) with the St. Louis Blues as a video coach and later as an assistant coach, working the bulk of his time under coach Joel Quenneville and alongside assistant coach Mike Kitchen.

With Quenneville, Kitchen and Kompon, the 1999-2000 Blues set a franchise-record with 113 points en route to the Presidents' Trophy for the League's best record. In the spring of 2006 Kompon served as a video coach for Team Canada at the World Championships in Latvia.

"We are excited to add Jamie as assistant coach and certainly welcome the Stanley Cup pedigree he brings," Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman said. "He has over 15 years of NHL coaching experience and some obvious familiarity with our staff, having worked under Joel and Mike in St. Louis, which will help our staff and players with the transition."

"Jamie will bring us all the great qualities you look for in a coach, most notably his work ethic and a winning resume," Quenneville said. "We have a great working relationship and I am confident he will be a great fit with us here in Chicago."

Kompon was an assistant coach with the Baltimore Bandits of the American Hockey League for the 1996-97 season and in 1994-95 was named co-head coach at McGill University in Montreal after spending three seasons there as an assistant.

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
