Chicago Blackhawks fire goalie coach

Prior to the start of the 2014 NHL Draft, there was a report that the Chicago Blackhawks could be planning a big move. Well, the team did make a move, but it wasn’t the kind of move that people were anticipating.

Rather than going out and adding a player that could help them on the ice, the Blackhawks subtracted a member of the coaching staff.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the Blackhawks have fired goalie coach Steve Weeks after just one year on the job.

Tough situation,” Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville told the the paper. “But we’re looking to make a change there.

“If we can fill it sooner than later, that’s what we’ll look to do … But I don’t think there’s a timeline on it.”

Weeks has been around the NHL for quite some time, so he will likely land on his feet and find another gig.

Let’s just hope that his next job lasts longer than his stint in Chicago.
