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.

Blackhawks winger Jeremy Morin should make roster, but it's a battle

Sep 26 2014 10:55pm CDT | Source: chicago sun-times

He has been all but anointed by general manager Stan Bowman and coach Joel Quenneville as the next guy to make the jump. He was one of the most effective players down the stretch last April when injuries forced him into the lineup. He signed a two-year, one-way contract this summer. Logic says Jeremy Morin is a lock to make the Blackhawks' roster ...

Where Does Marian Hossa Rank Among the NHL's Best 2-Way Forwards?

Sep 11 2014 8:44pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews are the Chicago Blackhawks' Gold Dust Twins. When they signed massive contract extensions together this summer, it hammered home just how important they are to the team, its fans and the league itself. But the Blackhawks are a team that has star power up and down the lineup. One of the biggest stars—and most important players—is Marian Hossa. He is among the most gifted offensive players in the game, a ...

What Are the Chicago Blackhawks' Options If Brad Richards Does Not Work Out?

Sep 2 2014 9:06pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Chicago Blackhawks are not looking for miracles from Brad Richards in 2014-15. When they signed the former New York Rangers center at the start of free agency, Stan Bowman and Joel Quenneville did not assume that they had brought in an all-star to play between Patrick Kane and Brandon Saad on the Blackhawks' No. 2 line. Instead, they projected that the aging Richards, 34, would have at least one decent season l ...

Will Corey Crawford Improve Under New Goaltending Coach Jimmy Waite?

Aug 13 2014 4:39pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Chicago Blackhawks did not exactly keep the move a secret, but when they hired Jimmy Waite in early July to serve as their goalie coach, it wasn't front-page news. That's because the Blackhawks were just days away from inking superstars Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane to long-term contracts that are expected to keep them with the team through the 2022-23 season. However, signing Waite could have a huge impact on the team ...
