Hawks name Marc Bergevin asst. GM

The Chicago Blackhawks promoted three members of its front office staff and extended the contract of senior adviser Scotty Bowman, the team announced Wednesday.

Marc Bergevin takes over as assistant general manager, replacing Kevin Cheveldayoff, who recently took over as general manager of the Winnipeg franchise. Bergevin is a former Hawks player, assistant coach and most recently was the director of player personnel.

Norm Maciver takes over Bergevin's former job after spending four seasons as the Hawks' director of player development.

"As an organization we're fortunate to have the depth of talent available that allows us to promote from within," said general manager Stan Bowman in a statement. "Marc and Norm have combined for more than 40 years of NHL experience, as players, behind the bench and in the front office. Marc possesses an unrivaled understanding of the Chicago Blackhawks professional and amateur scouting operations, as well as those around the league, while Norm has overseen the development of our draft picks and prospects into contributors at the professional level. Both have a comprehensive understanding of the Blackhawks way of doing business in pursuit of our goal of consistent excellence."

Bowman has been a senior adviser since 2008.

The Hawks also promoted Kyle Davidson to hockey administration coordinator after one year as hockey analytics video analyst.
