NHL: Blackhawks to Give Extension to Coach Joel Quenneville

Jul 26 2013, 12:03am CDT | by

The Chicago Blackhawks will schedule a press conference on Friday announcing a contract extension for head coach Joel Qunneville.

The Chicago Blackhawks are rewarding head coach Joel Quenneville with a contract extension. 

Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports the extension will be announced by the Blackhawks at a press conference on Friday. More specifically Kuc says this will take place during a "major team announcement" before the opening of the opening of the Blackhawks Convention. 

Scott Powers of ESPN Chicago notes Quenneville's contract runs through the 2013-14 NHL season. He was signed to a three-year extension after the Blackhawks won their first Stanley Cup trophy in 2010, ending a 49-year title drought

Chicago general manager Stan Bowman lauded Quenneville's performance in a radio interview with ESPN Chicago 1000 last month. 

"I think Joel has done a tremendous job looking back at the years he's been here. The record speaks for itself. He's really got a great handle on pushing the right buttons and looking back on his whole career, he's had success everywhere he's been. It's a great fit for us in Chicago."

Quenneville told the Chicago Sun-Times earlier this month he and his family love the city. 

"We certainly like being here. We've liked our time here in Chicago. It's been a lot of thrills, a lot of excitement. We like everything surrounding the quality of life ad being part of the sporting situation in town. We love the organization. There are a lot of positives in all aspects of being here. Hopefully things can work out."

Prior to him joining the Blackhawks in 2008, he coached the St. Louis Blues and Colorado Avalanche. As of July 2013, his career NHL coaching record stands at 660-389-77.

Quenneville guided Chicago to its second Stanley Cup championship in four years with a 4-2 series triumph over the Boston Bruins last month.

Believe it or not, Joel Quenneville doesn’t want to do this. He doesn’t want to change lines every game, every period, every shift.
