Just received the following information:

WOLVES CHEVELDAYOFF JOINS CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS

The Chicago Wolves longtime general manager, KEVIN CHEVELDAYOFF, has been

named Assistant General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Chicago

Blackhawks. This marks CHEVELDAYOFF’s first NHL position.

CHEVELDAYOFF’s 12-year tenure with the Wolves saw the club net four league

titles – the 1998 and 2000 Turner Cup championships and 2002 and 2008

Calder Cup championships – and compile a .616 regular-season winning

percentage (544-320-24-31-49).

He guided the Wolves to back-to-back International Hockey League Midwest

Division championships in 1997-98 and 1998-99; the American Hockey League

West Division titles in 2004-05 and 2007-08; the club’s first IHL

Regular-Season championship in 1999-2000 and five Western Conference

championships in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2005 and 2008.

“I am very proud of Chevy and everything that he has accomplished with the

Wolves in these last 12 years,” said Wolves Chairman of the Board DON

LEVIN. “This is akin to me having a son going off to college. He has been

a fantastic asset and a great general manager for our organization. I am

very proud of him and he certainly deserves this opportunity. I know this

is the next step towards his goal of becoming an NHL general manager.”

In the last 14 years, the 39-year-old CHEVELDAYOFF has earned two AHL and

four IHL championships as a coach and an executive. Eight of the 14 teams

he has helped build have cracked the 100-point mark in the regular season,

which includes six Chicago squads.

“I will always be grateful for my time working with the Chicago Wolves, and

would especially like to thank Don Levin and Buddy Meyers,” CHEVELDAYOFF

said. “The memories and friendships that I have gained over the last 12

years will stay near to my heart always. The Wolves have been more than

just a hockey team that I have worked for, they have been like my family. I

know that the tradition and the commitment to excellence that begins at the

top will continue to guide this organization as it moves forward. I am

excited about the opportunity to move from one successful organization to

another.”

The Blaine Lake, Saskatchewan, native, joined the Wolves before the start

of the 1997-98 season after serving as the assistant vice president of

hockey operations and assistant coach for the 1995 Denver Grizzlies and

1996 Utah Grizzlies – both Turner Cup Champions.

Thanks for everything Chevy and all the best!!!
