Reports out of Canada are that the Chicago Blackhawks are losing a valuable member of the organization to the new team in Winnipeg.
And no, this time it isn’t Bobby Hull.
Kevin Cheveldayoff, who had spent two years as the Assistant General Manager in Chicago, has reportedly accepted the General Manager role with the team-formerly-known-as-the-Thrashers.
He reportedly received a five-year deal.
Before joining the Blackhawks in 2009, Cheveldayoff spent 12 seasons as the General Manager of the Chicago Wolves – the AHL affiliate of Atlanta – and was responsible for building four league championships, including the 2008 and 2002 AHL Calder Cups and 2000 and 1998 IHL Turner Cups.
