On Tuesday morning, the Chicago Blackhawks announced that Jamie Kompon will serve as an assistant coach, replacing Mike Haviland.
Kompon spent the last six seasons as an assistant coach with the Kings. While with LA, he also served as Director of Amateur Development before moving to the bench, where he helped the Kings win the 2012 Stanley Cup.
Before joining LA, he was with the St. Louis Blues from 1997-2006. He served as a video coach and later as an assistant coach.
Most of his time with the Blues was with… wait for it… coach Joel Quenneville, and alongside Hawks assistant coach Mike Kitchen. The 1999-2000 Blues, which had Quenneville, Kitchen and Kompon behind the bench together, won the Presidents’ Trophy and set a franchise-record with 113 points.
Kompon also served as a video coach for Team Canada at the World Championships in Latvia in 2006. Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook was on that roster.
