Blackhawks hire Kompon as assistant coach

CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Blackhawks have hired Jamie Kompon as an assistant coach.

Kompon spent the past six seasons as an assistant in Los Angeles, helping the Kings capture the Stanley Cup this year. He previously worked under Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville in St. Louis, where he served as a video coach and then assistant over nine years.

In a statement, Quenneville says Kompon "will bring us all the great qualities you look for in a coach."

The Blackhawks announced the hiring on Tuesday.
