Report: Canadiens to name former Blackhawks assistant Bergevin as new GM @NHLdotcom

CHICAGO - The Montreal Canadiens have selected Marc Bergevin as their new general manager, according to a report on the Chicago Tribune's website.

Citing anonymous sources, the report stated that the 46-year-old Montreal native will replace the fired Pierre Gauthier.

Bergevin served as assistant GM for the Blackhawks under Stan Bowman during the 2011-12 season. Bergevin, a former defenceman with the Blackhawks, spent seven seasons overall in Chicago's front office.

It would be the second consecutive season the Blackhawks have seen their assistant GM land a top job elsewhere. The Winnipeg Jets hired Kevin Cheveldayoff as their GM following the 2010-11 season.
