CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Blackhawks have given coach Joel Quenneville a three-year contract extension.
The contract announced Thursday runs through the 2013-14 season. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Last season, Quenneville led the team to its first Stanley Cup championship since 1961 and became just the 14th coach to win 500 games. He coached in St. Louis and Colorado before taking the job in Chicago when Denis Savard was fired four games into the 2008-09 season.
