The Chicago Blackhawks have contacted Peter Chiarelli and will interview him for their hockey operations vacancy, TSN's Darren Dreger reported on Thursday's edition of "Insider Trading."

Interim general manager Kyle Davidson is currently running the club, and the Blackhawks indicated earlier this week that he is a candidate for the position and will also receive an interview. The team elevated Davidson to the role following longtime GM Stan Bowman's resignation earlier this season in the wake of the Kyle Beach allegations.

Chicago formed an advisory panel that includes Marian Hossa, Eddie Olczyk, and Patrick Sharp to help in the search for a new GM.

The St. Louis Blues named Chiarelli vice president of hockey operations in September. He began as a front office executive in 1999 when the Ottawa Senators hired him as an assistant GM. Chiarelli later became GM of the Boston Bruins from 2006-15 and the Edmonton Oilers from 2015-19.
