The Portland Winterhawks fired head coach and general manager Jamie Kompon on Friday, two days after the Hawks quietly bowed out of the Western Hockey League playoffs in a four-game sweep at the hands of the Everett Silvertips.
Kompon, who was hired in July 2014, led the Hawks to the Western Conference final in his first season, but the team slipped to 34-31-6-1 this season and finished on a nine-game losing streak that spanned the regular season and the playoffs. It was the worst season for the Hawks since missing the playoffs in 2008-09.
