Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville is back with the team after missing four games while hospitalized due to an ulcer.
Quenneville returned to practice Wednesday after assistant coach Mike Haviland went 3-1-0 in his absence.
Quenneville spent four days in the hospital while receiving treatment for gastrointestinal bleeding caused by a small ulcer. He has a 125-66-25 record during his three seasons with the Blackhawks, including winning the Stanley Cup last June.
Chicago, which returns to action Thursday in Nashville, came into Wednesday one of four teams tied for eighth in the Western Conference with 68 points. After tiebreakers factor in, the Blackhawks rank 10th in the conference.
