Chicago Blackhawks: Pros & Cons of Keeping Derek King as Head Coach

As the Chicago Blackhawks begin the offseason, something that general manager (GM) Kyle Davidson will likely address before this year’s NHL Draft is the head coach position. From the recently fired Barry Trotz to a young and rising face, there are many directions the Blackhawks could go when it comes to filling the gig. However, while Davidson relieved former assistant coaches Marc Crawford and Rob Cookson of their duties on May 1, it doesn’t mean current interim head coach Derek King won’t get the permanent position. In fact, Davidson made it clear during his end-of-season press conference last week that King is a candidate for the job.
