Rockford IceHogs head coach Bill Peters, who recently re-signed with the Blackhawks, has accepted an assistant coach position with the Detroit Red Wings.

“Bill has been a great teacher and a valuable resource in the development of our many prospects in Rockford the last three seasons,” general manager Stan Bowman said in a statement. “I want to thank him for his dedication to the growth of the Blackhawks organization and certainly wish him well in Detroit.”

Peters led the IceHogs to a 122-97-7-14 record in the past three seasons. He joined the Hawks after a stint with the University of Lethbridge and having considerable success in the Western Hockey League with the Spokane Chiefs.

Peters and Red Wings coach Mike Babcock worked together in Spokane. Peters initially worked as a scout with Spokane before joining Babcock’s staff in the 1999-2000 season, which was Babcock’s last with the team.

In June, the Hawks re-signed Peters, assistants Ted Dent and Steve Poapst and general manager of minor league affiliations Mark Bernard.
