Remembering a Pivotal Day: Blackhawks Part Ways with Quenneville

Five years ago today, on November 6, 2018, the Chicago Blackhawks organization made a significant and, for many fans, a heartbreaking decision. On that day, they bid farewell to their highly successful head coach, Joel Quenneville, and introduced Jeremy Colliton as his replacement.

Quenneville's tenure with the Blackhawks had been nothing short of remarkable. Over the years, he accumulated an impressive list of achievements that left an indelible mark on the team's history:

452 Regular season wins
76 Playoff wins
10 Playoff appearances
3 Stanley Cups

Quenneville's leadership and ability to guide the team to Stanley Cup victories had made him a beloved figure among Blackhawks faithful. His departure was met with mixed emotions, as fans said goodbye to a coach who had brought so much success to the franchise.

Five years have passed since that fateful day, and the Blackhawks have seen changes and transitions in their coaching staff and roster. However, the legacy of Joel Quenneville's time in Chicago continues to hold a special place in the hearts of the team's supporters, and his impact on the organization remains a significant part of their history.
