Mayers joins Blackhawks' front office as community liaison
The Chicago Blackhawks looked to a familiar face by tabbing Jamal Mayers as the team's community liaison on Monday.
Mayers played the final two seasons of his 15-year career with the Blackhawks, recording six goals and 11 assists in 100 regular-season games. The 40-year-old Toronto native capped off his stint by helping the club defeat Boston to win the Stanley Cup in 2013.
"We are proud to welcome Jamal back to the organization in this role," Chicago president John McDonough said in a statement on the team's website. "We envision him being a strong asset to the Blackhawks as we continue to focus on the growth of youth hockey. Jamal's involvement in our local neighborhoods will help to further engrain the Blackhawks brand into our community."
Mayers collected 90 goals, 129 assists and 1,200 penalty minutes in 915 career games with the St. Louis Blues, Toronto Maple Leafs, Calgary Flames, San Jose Sharks and Blackhawks.
