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

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
