The Chicago Blackhawks have hired former Canadiens, Senators and Ducks general manager Pierre Gauthier as their new director or player personnel.

Gauthier was fired by the Canadiens as GM on March 29 and eventually replaced by former Hawks assistant GM Marc Bergevin. Prior to working in Montreal, Gauthier was GM with the Senators and Ducks.

The 59-year-old Gauthier has been attending the Hawks' prospect camp in Chicago this week and watched from the stands while seated next to Hawks head coach Joel Quenneville as players went through drills Tuesday.
