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.
