SUNRISE, Fla. - With the Florida Panthers 4-3 win against the New York Rangers on Nov. 16, 2019, at BB&T Center, Panthers Head Coach Joel Quenneville earned his 900th career regular season win as an NHL head coach.

"I'm thrilled for Joel to have reached this incredible milestone," said Panthers President of Hockey Operations & General Manager Dale Tallon. "To be one of only two head coaches to reach 900 wins behind an NHL bench is an extraordinary feat. On behalf of myself and the entire Panthers organization, we are honored to share this moment with Joel, his staff and his family and congratulate him on his 900th win as an NHL head coach. We look forward to even more wins together with the Panthers as we look towards our goal of playoff hockey and bringing the Stanley Cup to South Florida."

Quenneville, 61, now owns a career head coaching record of 900-536-142-77 over 1,655 regular season games. The native of Windsor, Ontario, is only the second head coach in NHL history to reach the 900-win mark, behind only Hockey Hall of Famer Scotty Bowman (1,244). Quenneville stands at second all-time in NHL head coaching wins.

A three-time Stanley Cup Champion as head coach of the Chicago Blackhawks (2010, 2013, 2015), Quenneville owns a career 118-97 postseason record. His 118 playoff victories rank third all-time behind Bowman (223) and Hockey Hall of Famer Al Arbour (123).
