For the first week or so, the Blackhawks players organized and ran their own practices. Jonathan Toews drew up drills on the dry-erase board and Jamal Mayers had the whistle. But over time the players have gotten some real coaching help. And Kenny McCudden has been the latest to assist them. McCudden, the skating and skills coach for the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League, has been directing practices in Chicago for the past few days. In his 14th season with the Wolves, McCudden does have a past connection with the Blackhawks. He became the Blackhawk’s stick boy at age 17 in 1979, and spent six years with the them, ending his stint as the team’s assistant equipment manager.
