Ex-Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville's house listed for $2.6 million

Ex-Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville's house listed for $2.6 million

It should come as no surprise that former Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville was a legend in Hinsdale, where he and his family rented their home during each of his three Stanley Cup championships with the Hawks (2010, 2013, 2015). 

The tales of Coach Q frequenting and bringing the Cup to his favorite establishments in town like Fuller House bar and grill, as well as nearby York Tavern in Oak Brook, will live on long past his departure from the Chicago area. 

The house, which saw toilet paper thrown all over its lawn after each championship, was listed at $2.6 million on May 15 by the home owners.

The residence sports seven bedrooms, seven-and-a-half bathrooms, three fireplaces and hardwood floors. 

The property spans two-thirds of an acre and has a fire pit with the back of the house facing a private lake. 

Quenneville served as head coach of the Hawks from 2008 to 2018. He was fired by the Blackhawks on Nov. 6 of 2018 and replaced by Jeremy Colliton. 
Q was hired as the head coach of the Florida Panthers on April 8 of 2019.

Chicago Blackhawks coach Jeremy Colliton shows off moustache on Twitter

Chicago Blackhawks coach Jeremy Colliton shows off moustache on Twitter

Lots of guys around the world are using their time cooped up to work on their quarantine beards, but Blackhawks head coach Jeremy Colliton is going another route.

Colliton took to Twitter on Tuesday to show off a moustache he’s been working on.

While it’s not the bushiest of the bunch, it’s undeniably a great pic with a classic hockey smile.

And Colliton wisely goes to the authority on Chicago hockey moustaches for approval: @CoachQsMustache.

And wouldn’t ya know it, the iconic moustache itself responded with a classic Q line and a quick tip for Colliton.

So Colliton, what are you gonna do to up that ‘stache game? Take the advice of a Twitter parody account and sprinkle a little salt in there with dye? Or just wait and let experience take its course?

The only thing for sure is if @CoachQsMustache says you’ve got potential, you’re doing something right.

Joel Quenneville reflects on 'spectacular' time as Blackhawks head coach

Joel Quenneville reflects on 'spectacular' time as Blackhawks head coach

Sometimes, you learn that superstar athletes and sports legends are just like us.

On the latest episode of the Blackhawks Talk Podcast, former Hawks head coach Joel Quenneville joined us to talk about life in quarantine and, of course, Chicago hockey. Turns out, he's been reliving the glory days just like the rest of us.

To pass time during the ongoing stay-at-home order, many of us have been rewatching classic games from those Stanley Cup-winning seasons. Well, Joel Quenneville joined the club and recently caught some old Blackhawks games on TV, too.

“Been amazing,” Quennevile said. “I haven’t seen any of the last games. When we win the Cup, I don’t see the game. I usually watch the games in the playoffs at least twice after, and you get a really good idea of what’s going on and prepare for the next game. But when it’s over, you’re just thinking about partying and having a fun time, experience jubilation across the board.”

There was plenty of jubilation during Quenneville’s tenure manning the bench for the Blackhawks, but when asked whether his time in Chicago was everything he expected it to be, Coach Q said it was “10 times better.” 

“It was spectacular. The city was supportive. They love hockey. They love sports,” he said. “It’s a great city in all facets.”

Quenneville also added that, “Chicago’s a special place to play, and at least I was fortunate to coach here. I had to play in the building, which was fun. But it’s got everything you want. And that celebration from 2010, and then winning at home — and in between, winning in ’13 put it all together, and you couldn’t ask for a better run.”

Quenneville returned to Chicago a couple of weeks ago after beginning his self-isolation in Florida where he was “spoiled” by the weather. 

“It’s a tough time. Different experience for everybody in the whole world,” he said. “You get a real appreciation for all the work that’s being done on the front lines, an appreciation for the people that are putting their lives at stake and helping the rest of us, and doing what we can to comply with the quarantine.”
