Former Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville given his own holiday in Broward County, Florida


Former Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville signed on as head coach of the Florida Panthers in April 2019 and it looks like the Floridians are giving him a sunny welcome. Mayor Mark Bogen, a representative of commission District 2 in Broward County, declared August 27 “Joel Quenneville Day.”

Coach Q was the head coach for the Blackhawks starting in 2008, winning three Stanley Cup titles and compiling more than 700 NHL wins as a head coach. Quenneville was replaced by Jeremy Colliton in 2018, signing on with the Panthers on April 8, 2019.

We’re hoping Q is enjoying his time in the sunshine state.
