Blackhawks sign coach Quenneville to 3-year extension
The Chicago Blackhawks have announced a three-year contract extension for head coach Joel Quenneville, which will run through the 2019-20 NHL season.
Quenneville is in his eighth season with the club, coaching the Blackhawks to three Stanley Cups (2010, 2013, 2015) since taking over as bench boss in 2008.
Over the course of his 580 regular-season games behind the bench, Chicago has a record of 343-168-69, adding up to a points percentage of .651, the best in franchise history.
The Blackhawks also won the 2013 Presidents’ Trophy as the regular-season points leader, as well as the 2013 and 2015 Jennings Trophies as the team with the fewest regular-season goals allowed.
Altogether, Quenneville boasts 19 years of NHL head coaching experience, having previously worked with the St. Louis Blues and Colorado Avalanche.
