CHICAGO -- The Chicago Blackhawks have named Rick Dudley as an assistant general manager.

"Rick has a tremendous amount of experience and knowledge," said Blackhawks General Manager Dale Tallon. "He's been a valuable asset to our organization. Rick's been successful at every aspect of the game of hockey and I trust and respect his input."

"I've enjoyed working with Dale Tallon and Stan Bowman and the direction this team is going," said Dudley. "Our club is headed in the right direction with the promising youth we have in the organization and the commitment to building a Cup winner. I'm excited to be a part of what's going on here in Chicago."

Dudley joined the Blackhawks in December of 2004 as Hockey Operations Consultant and was elevated to Director of Player Personnel prior to the 2005-06 season.

Dudley, 57, joined the Blackhawks after serving as the General Manager of the Florida Panthers for two seasons from 2002-03 to 2003-04. Prior to joining the Panthers, Dudley spent two and a half seasons as Senior Vice-President and General Manager of the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Before joining the Lightning, Rick served as General Manager of the Ottawa Senators for the 1998-99 season.

The Toronto native played six seasons with the Sabres from 1972-73 to 1974-75 and 1978-79 to 1980-81, recording 70 goals and 94 assists in 279 games.
