The Chicago Blackhawks as of 6:06 pm today, have reportedly made a decision to name Ryan Huska the new head coach. After Jeremy Colliton and Derek King's interim runs, it looks like they're taking another route than the NHL coaching carousel. However, he is no stranger to the NHL, as he is currently an assistant coach for the Calgary Flames.


Huska was originally drafted by Chicago in the third round of the 1993 NHL Draft. He played four years with the Western Hockey League's Kamloops Blazers where he won three Memorial Cups in 1992, 1994 and 1995. After his junior career, he spent three seasons with the IHL's Indianapolis Ice, one year with the AHL's Lowell Lock Monsters and concluded his playing career in the AHL with Springfield in 1999-00 accumulating over 300 professional games.

Winning Bronze and Silver medals as an assistant in the IIHF World Junior Championships shows this coach has a pedigree, and is not a stranger to winning and the Flames run this season shows how well put together the organization is.
Huska also won Four Memorial Cup rings, three times with the Kamloops Blazers and once as a coach with the Kelowna Rockets. Huska also is responsible for 15 NHL call-ups from the Stockton Heat to the Flames in 2015-2016.
