CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Blackhawks have hired Jimmy Waite to coach their goaltenders.

The hiring was announced on Monday. Waite replaces the fired Steve Weeks.

A former goalie, Waite appeared in 106 games with the Blackhawks, San Jose Sharks and Phoenix Coyotes from 1988 to 1999 and played professionally until 2010. He appeared in 58 games for Chicago over parts of eight seasons from 1988 to 1997.

Waite spent the past three seasons as the goaltending coach for the Chicoutimi Sagueneens of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. He is the younger brother of former Blackhawks goaltending coach Stephane Waite.
