Phil Posted May 22, 2017 Share Posted May 22, 2017 The Chicago Blackhawks may have found their man. Ulf Samuelsson is the leading candidate to join Joel Quenneville's coaching staff, according to Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune. The Blackhawks fired former assistant coach Mike Kitchen following the team's first-round sweep to the Nashville Predators. Kitchen had been a longtime member of Quenneville's staff, coming to Chicago in 2010. The two also coached together for six seasons with the St. Louis Blues. Samuelsson, 53, is a familiar name to Quenneville. The two were former teammates with the Hartford Whalers for five seasons up until 1990. https://www.thescore.com/news/1305845 -- I guess the head coaching aspiratioins will need to wait a while longer. He left the Rangers to coach with Charlotte hoping to use that to jump into an NHL head coaching gig. Doesn't seem to have worked. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
