The Chicago Blackhawks have previously promoted Mark Crawford, one of the club’s assistant coaches, as associate coach.
The Illinois company said this on its Twitter account Wednesday. Hawks also announced that he was hiring Rob Cookson as an assistant instructor.
Crawford was one of the “coaches” who survived the November 6 massacre in Chicago. That day, the crew, along with head coach Jeremy Collitan, showed the exit door to his assistants Thomas Mittal and Sheldon Brookbank.
Derek King, who ran the American Black Hawks League School Club, has been appointed interim head coach for the National Hockey League (NHL). Since this course changed, the team has won three of several outings. Before their Tuesday night clash, the “Hawks” were 4-9-2.
When he returned to Crawford, he was one of 60 aides behind the Blackhawks bench from the 2019-20 campaign. The year before, he had served as interim head coach with Ottawa senators, where he was associate coach for just over two seasons.
