Chicago, IL (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Former UMD Bulldog standout and longtime NHL star Norm Maciver was promoted on Monday to assistant general manager for the Chicago Blackhawks, that according to the team's website.

Maciver has been with the Chicago organization for five years, just finishing his first as director of player personnel.

"Norm has proven to be a valuable asset to our hockey operations over the past five years, so we are excited to be able to elevate him to this role," Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman said. "He has an excellent handle on the players within our organization, from recent draft picks to veterans, and a great eye for talent evaluating."

Maciver was a three-time All-American selection while at UMD and in 1986 was a finalist for the Hobey Baker Memorial Award.

He played 12 seasons in the NHL, racking up 285 points in 500 career regular season games and another 14 in 56 playoffs contests.

The former Bulldog won the Eddie Shore Award in 1991 as the best defenseman in the American Hockey League, and he also won the Turner Cup in 1999 in the International Hockey League.
