Blackhawks Hire New Assistant Coach

The search for the new Chicago Blackhawks assistant coach is over and the winner is…..Jamie Kompon.

The good news is he was an assistant coach for the newly crowned Stanley Cup Champion LA Kings.  He coached under Coach Quenneville in St Louis, and has been with the Kings for the past 6 seasons before not having his contract renewed this off season.

The bad news is according to sources in twitterverse he is “utterly incompetent in handling the power play”!  One man’s trash is another man’s gold? On the other hand I’m pretty sure our power play couldn’t get any worse than last season.

Time will tell, but it seems like Coach Q just had to let go of one band member to just pick  up another one. Hopefully his incompetence is going away when he travels back to the Midwest!
