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.

Quote of the Day

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
