#Blackhawks announce a three-year extension for Joel Quenneville hours before he can tie Al Arbour for 2nd all-time in #NHL coaching wins.

Quenneville, 57, is now under contract through 2019-20 season. He was entering the final year of his current deal next season.

@NHLBlackhawks 3 yr Quenneville ext included bump on his last year of old deal Sources say new #NHL deal in ballpark of 18m over the 3 yrs.


Fantastic coach. Annually $/year get bumped up because of Babcock signing and other top coaches will be soon to follow.

One of the best active coaches in the league; he will end up being one of the best of all-time.  Maybe we can get him in 3 years after the enormous Toews and Kane contracts become a boat anchor for the team's success and he decides to move on....What? it could happen.

And with the Blackhawks win against MTL tonight Q moves into 2nd all time for coaching wins.

1st           Scotty Bowman     - 1244 
2nd          Joel Quenneville   - 783


461 more wins to go. I don't think he makes it to first. 10 more years at an average of 46 wins per season just doesn't seem likely at age 57.
