Blackhawks Offseason: Chicago Promotes Norm Maciver To Assistant GM

According to Jesse Rogers of ESPN Chicago, the Chicago Blackhawks have moved to fill the void left when the Montreal Canadiens hired away assistant GM Marc Bergevin. Rogers reports the 'Hawks have promoted former director of player personal Norm Maciver to the assistant GM position:

"Norm has proven to be a valuable asset to our hockey operations over the past five years, so we are excited to be able to elevate him to this role," Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman said in a statement. "He has an excellent handle on the players within our organization, from recent draft picks to veterans, and a great eye for talent evaluating."

Bergevin joins a Montreal Canadiens organization that missed the playoffs for the first time in the five seasons after the team mustered only 78 points in the 2011-12 season. The Blackhawks, meanwhile, finished 4th in the Central Division despite an impressive 101 points total.
