The Blackhawks filled their vacant assistant general manager position Wednesday by promoting Marc Bergevin to replace the departed Kevin Cheveldayoff.
Bergevin, who is entering his seventh season with Hawks, had been serving as director of player personnel.
Bergevin, a former Hawks defenseman, was the front-runner all along to take over for Cheveldayoff, who left last week to become GM in Winnipeg.
Hawks GM Stan Bowman also announced Norm Maciver would succeed Bergevin as director of player personnel after serving the last three years as director player development.
Kyle Davidson was named hockey administration coordinator.
The Hawks also extended the contract of senior advisor Scotty Bowman.
“As an organization we're fortunate to have the depth of talent available that allows us to promote from within,” Stan Bowman said.
