Blackhawks Announce Stan Bowman and Joel Quenneville to Return


This morning, and one day prior to the final home game of the 2017-18 season, Blackhawks President and CEO John McDonough announced that the “3CUPZ CREW” of general manager Stan Bowman and head coach Joel Quenneville will return for the 2018-19 season. There has been much doubt as to whether Bowman and/or Quenneville would be retained following this extremely disappointing season, especially after McDonough’s very obvious displeasure with the Blackhawks first round playoff exits the previous two seasons.

This announcement gets out ahead of the looming dead time between the beginning of the playoffs, and the final game of the Stanley Cup final when the question would, no doubt, be front of mind.

Now the Blackhawks can focus their attention on their plan of attack for the NHL Entry Draft on June 22–23, 2018, at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, and the Free Agency signing period July 1st.
