Blackhawks hire former Canadiens GM


Pierre Gauthier, former general manager for the Montreal Canadiens, will be the Chicago Blackhawks' new director of player personnel. He takes over the job that was left vacant when Norm Maciver was promoted to assistant general manager earlier this summer.

Gauthier had been present at the Blackhawks first two days of summer prospect camp at Johnny's IceHouse West.

Gauthier was part of the Canadiens' front office since 2003. He became the team's general manager in 2010 and was fired from that position in March of 2012. Marc Bergevin became the Canadiens' new general manager in early May.
