Coach Q 'Thrilled' With Contract Extension

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville, speaking this morning on WGN radio, had this reaction to his contract extension, which will be officially announced this afternoon:

“I’m very happy,” Quenneville said on WGN-AM 720. “It’s going to be for more than a couple of years. It’s a good thing for the family. It’s been a great couple of years. I know how excited we were when we took this job just a short two years ago. We knew it was going to be great so we’re thrilled.”

The news conference will happen at 2:30 p.m. CDT today; SB Nation Chicago will post a link to the live online stream.
