It didn't take long for Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman to replace assistant GM Marc Bergevin, who left the team last week to run the Montreal Canadiens.

As expected, the move came from within.

Norm Maciver was promoted to assistant GM on Monday. Maciver has spent the last five seasons with the Hawks, the last as director of player personnel. Before that, he was the Hawks' director of player development.

"Norm has proven to be a valuable asset to our hockey operations over the past five years, so we are excited to be able to elevate him to this role," Bowman said in a statement. "He has an excellent handle on the players within our organization, from recent draft picks to veterans, and a great eye for talent evaluating.

"Promoting within our organization is something we take great pride in and we are very confident in what he will contribute on a daily basis as we strive to hire the best possible candidate at every position."

Before joining the Hawks' front office, Maciver was an assistant coach with the Boston Bruins (2003-06). A former defenseman, Maciver spent 12 seasons in the NHL.
