While this season has been a disappointing one for the Chicago Blackhawks, it doesn’t appear as if any front-office changes are on the horizon. Team chairman Rocky Wirtz told Scott Powers of The Athletic that team president John McDonough, GM Stan Bowman and head coach Jeremy Colliton are all expected to return for next season.
The Blackhawks (32-30-8) currently sit in the basement of the Central Division and barring a significant expansion of the playoff pool, they will miss the postseason for the third straight year.
Powers notes that Bowman’s last announced contract extension took him through 2020-21, so if there hasn’t been anything signed since then, he’ll be entering the final year of his deal.
McDonough wouldn’t comment on whether or not a new contract for Bowman is already in place.
