Blackhawks hire Ulf Samuelsson, Don Granato as assistants
After being swept out of the playoffs in the first round, the Chicago Blackhawks revamped their coaching staff, and the result has a decidedly Hartford Whalers feel.

The team announced the hiring of former NHL defenseman Ulf Samuelsson, 53, as an assistant on Thursday. Samuelsson played with head coach Joel Quenneville on the Whalers from 1984 to '90. Kevin Dineen, who played with Samuelsson on the Whalers from 1984 to '91, is also on staff.

The Blackhawks also announced the hiring of Don Granato, the brother of women's Olympic gold medalist and Hall of Famer Cammi Granato and longtime NHL winger Tony Granato. The family hails from nearby Downers Grove, Illinois.
