Dineen hired as Blackhawks assistant

CHICAGO (AP) - Kevin Dineen, who coached Canada's women's hockey team to a gold medal at the Sochi Olympics, has returned to the NHL as an assistant with the Chicago Blackhawks.

Dineen was head coach of the Florida Panthers for two-plus seasons before being fired last fall.

In addition to winning gold in Sochi, the 50-year-old led Canada's under-18 men's team to a bronze medal at the world championship in Finland in April.

Dineen was teammates with Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville from 1984 to 1990 when they played for the Hartford Whalers.

Dineen replaces Jamie Kompon, who became general manager and coach of the WHL's Portland Winterhawks, filling the void left by Mike Johnston when he took the head job in Pittsburgh.
