The axe keeps falling in the Blackhawks organization.
Chicago relieved Ted Dent of his role as head coach of the Rockford IceHogs, the Blackhawks’ AHL affiliate, on Tuesday. Dent took over as the head coach in Rockford before the 2011-12 season. The IceHogs put together a 221-179-33-21 record under Dent’s leadership over six seasons.
“The Chicago Blackhawks thank Ted for all of his contributions throughout his tenure with the organization,” Chicago Blackhawks Senior Vice President and General Manager Stan Bowman said in the statement released by the team. “He played a major role in helping a number of players reach the NHL level with the Chicago Blackhawks, many of whom became Stanley Cup champions. We wish Ted and his family the best.”
