The Chicago Blackhawks will look to fill their general manager vacancy prior to the March 21 NHL trade deadline.

Kyle Davidson took over the position in an interim capacity after Stan Bowman resigned Oct. 26 in response to the results of an independent investigation into allegations committed by then-Chicago video coach Brad Aldrich. Davidson fired Jeremy Colliton as head coach on Nov. 6 and promoted Derek King from AHL head coach to Blackhawks interim head coach.

Blackhawks CEO Danny Wirtz announced Jan. 26 that Davidson will interview for the position. We now know the first external candidate as well. Darren Dreger reported Thursday on TSN’s “Insider Trading” that Peter Chiarelli will be in the mix.

Chiarelli is currently the vice president of hockey operations for the St. Louis Blues. The 57-year-old previously was the president of hockey operations and GM of the Edmonton Oilers (2015-19) and GM of the Boston Bruins (2006-2015). He won the Stanley Cup in 2011 and reached the Stanley Cup Final in 2013.

Dreger noted, “a number of candidates have been identified with varying levels of experience.” He added that the Blackhawks GM interview process is expected to begin during the NHL All-Star Weekend and carry into next week.
