The Chicago coach, as well as his assistant, Mike Haviland, was assigned to coach Team Staal -- captained by Carolina's Eric Staal -- throughout All-Star Weekend.
Vancouver's Alain Vigneault and Philadelphia's Peter Laviolette, meanwhile, will coach Team Lidstrom, which is captained by Detroit's Nicklas Lidstrom.
The coaching assignments were determined after a coin-flip ceremony Friday afternoon.
Quenneville and Haviland were named as All-Star coaches as a reward for guiding Chicago to the 2011 Stanley Cup Championship. Laviolette and Vigneault, meanwhile, were rewarded for having the top team in their respective conference at the All-Star Break.
