Blackhawks reward Quenneville with contract extension

Twice in the last four seasons the Blackhawks have had a parade through the streets of Chicago to celebrate Stanley Cup championships with millions of fans.

Joel Quenneville, the coach who guided the Hawks to those titles, has been rewarded for those successes with a contract extension. It was announced Friday during a “major team announcement” before the opening of the Blackhawks Convention. The three year extension is in addition to the year remaining on Coach Q’s current contract.

In five seasons with the Hawks, Quenneville has compiled a 222-106-44 record in 372 regular-season games and hoisted the Cup twice. The first championship came in 2010 and ended a 49-year Cup drought for the Original Six organization and was followed by another title in ’13 after the Hawks dispatched the Bruins in six games.
