The Blackhawks released the following statements this morning regarding Head Coach Joel Quenneville:

Blackhawks head team physician Dr. Michael Terry:

“Joel presented severe discomfort late last night at his home in suburban Chicago. He went to the emergency room and was admitted early this morning. He is currently in stable condition and is being treated for an undisclosed health concern today, not of cardiac nature. Further testing is ongoing and we will provide an update when possible.”

Blackhawks Vice President/General Manager Stan Bowman:

“Acting as head coach tonight in Joel’s absence will be assistant coach Mike Haviland. We certainly wish Joel a speedy recovery and we will do everything possible to support him and his family throughout the process.”
