Frank Seravalli reported that Luke Richardson will be the next head coach of the Chicago Blackhawks.

Sources say Richardson and the Hawks are putting the final touches on a contract.
Quite the resume for Richardson, who played 1400+ NHL games, 8 years as NHL assistant, 4 years as AHL head coach.
Previously an assistant coach of the Montreal Canadiens, Richardson takes over the Blackhawks after interim coach Derek King finished off the 2021-22 season.
Richardson joined the Canadiens as an assistant coach in 2018. The Ottawa native worked under three head coaches -- Claude Julien, Dominique Ducharme and Martin St. Louis.
Richardson filled in for Ducharme as head coach for the final four games of the 2021 Conference Finals after a positive COVID-19 test, guiding the Canadiens to a win over the Vegas Golden Knights. He remained in charge for the first two games of the Stanley Cup Final.
The former NHL defenceman also has been an assistant coach with the Ottawa Senators and New York Islanders and a head coach of the AHL's Binghamton Senators.
It will be interesting to see if he is able to turn the franchise around and help them regain success!
