Chicago Blackhawks Provide Update on Head Coach's Future

The Chicago Blackhawks have decided Jeremy Colliton is indeed their guy, as the team has extended his contract for two more season. 

The 35-year-old head coach was named interim coach two seasons ago and is the youngest coach in the league. The Blackhawks have not enjoyed a ton of success under Colliton, however with management wanting to rebuild on the fly, they feel he's able to develop and connect with the younger players.

As per

Colliton previously served as Head Coach of the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League and led them to a record of 40-28-4-4 in 2017-18. Rockford made it to their first-ever 2018 AHL Western Conference Finals after sweeping Chicago in the Division Semifinals and sweeping Manitoba in the Division Finals, before losing to Texas, 4-2. Colliton was named IceHogs head coach on May 18, 2017-his first coaching job in North America.
