Adam Jahns of the Sun-Times has a quick Q&A with Dan Carcillo here.
Jahns asked Carcillo to describe himself away from the ice. Carcillo said what pretty much every one of his former teammates will say, and its that he’s “pretty much the exact opposite.” (Opposite, that is, of a loose cannon. My words)
Carcillo: “If something irks me or gets me upset, I usually take it out on the ice.”
That explains a lot.
–Former Blackhawk goaltender Jimmy Waite is the new goaltending coach for the Chicoutimi Sagueneens (QMJHL). Waite is the younger brother of current Blackhawks’ goaltending coach Stephane Waite. Jimmy, who is now 42, continued his playing career in Europe until retiring at age 40. He returns to coach the team he played junior hockey with, the same Chicoutimi organization Waite was playing for when the Hawks drafted him 8th overall in 1987 NHL Draft. The president of the current day Sagueneens is Guy Carbonneau.
