Chicago, Ill. - The Chicago Blackhawks announced today that they have hired Sheldon Brookbank as an assistant coach with the American Hockey League’s Rockford IceHogs. Brookbank will join Derek King on Jeremy Colliton’s staff in Rockford.

Brookbank, a Stanley Cup Champion with the Blackhawks in 2013, appeared in 74 games across two seasons (2012-2014) with Chicago, notching eight points (3G, 5A).
