 CHICAGO (AP) -Former coach Denis Savard is back with the Chicago Blackhawks.
A Hockey Hall of Fame player and one of the franchise's most popular figures, Savard returned to the organization as a team ambassador on Thursday after being fired as coach last month. He joins former Blackhawks Tony Esposito, Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita in the community relations role.
``I have been very fortunate to be a part of this organization, to wear these colors, for so long and this gives me the chance to continue to be a part of something I love,'' Savard said in a statement. ``Today is a great day for me and my family.''
With a promising young core led by Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews, the Blackhawks had high expectations after missing the playoffs nine of the past 10 seasons, but a slow start cost Savard his job.

``It is important to our fans and organization that Denis remains a part of our family,'' team president John McDonough said in a statement. ``He is a very classy individual that embodies the spirit of the Chicago Blackhawks.''
