Quenneville coaches 1,600th NHL game

Trails Scotty Bowman (2,141), Al Arbour (1,607) for most all time @NHLdotcom

Joel Quenneville became the third coach in NHL history to coach 1,600 regular-season games Wednesday when the Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Ottawa Senators 3-2 in a shootout.

Quenneville, 59, is in his 10th season with Chicago, making him the longest-tenured coach in the League. He has won the Stanley Cup three times with the Blackhawks (2010, 2013, 2015) and has led them to three Central Division titles.

"Coach Q" has a lifetime record of 877-514-132 with 77 ties and is second all time in wins, trailing Scotty Bowman (1,244).

Quenneville spent the first eight seasons of his NHL head coaching career with the St. Louis Blues, winning his only Jack Adams Award in 2000. From 2005-2008, he coached the Colorado Avalanche, missing the postseason for the only time in his career in 2007.

Tweet from @NHL: You read that right. This is Coach Q's 1,600th NHL game. Congrats! ��#NHLMilestones via @SAPSports:
