Passing The Torchetti: Hawks Asst. Coach Moves On

Our own Al Yellon wondered about it back in June, and so it has come to pass: Blackhawks Assistant Coach John Torchetti is heading down to Atlanta to take up the same position with the Thrashers.


Torchetti will work with Atlanta’s head coach Craig Ramsay to try and improve a hockey team that finished tenth in NHL’s Eastern Conference in 2009-2010 with a 35-34 record (83 goals). Meanwhile, Blackhawks fans are left wondering whether the organization’s bold rebuilding effort after a championship season will justify the sudden and jarring dismantling of a beloved team.
