The Chicago Blackhawks have relieved Assistant Coach Mike Kitchen of his duties.

 “We believe this decision is best for our organization moving forward,” said Blackhawks Senior Vice President and General Manager Stan Bowman said in a press release. “Mike had an impact on two different Stanley Cup championship teams during his tenure in Chicago. We appreciate his many contributions and wish he and his family success in the future.”
