Joel Quenneville is the new head coach of the Florida Panthers


Dale Tallon got his man! The Florida Panthers have signed Joel Quenneville to be their next head coach after the team fired Bob Boughner just a couple days ago.

The move reunites Tallon and Quenneville from their days in Chicago where they won multiple Stanley Cups. A native of Windsor, Ontario, Quenneville owns an 890-532-77-137 record as a head coach in the NHL. It's a 5-year deal at 30 million dollars. Panthers GM Dale Tallon had this to say on the hire:
Joel is a three-time Stanley Cup champion head coach who will be a transformative leader for the Florida Panthers franchise. We've seized the opportunity to add one of the most successful head coaches in hockey history and we're thrilled that Joel has agreed to take on the challenge of leading our promising young team.
I've worked with Joel previously and have seen firsthand how his passion for the game, head coaching experience and leadership can impact an organization. Joel will accelerate our growth into a club that qualifies for the playoffs consistently and competes every year toward our goal of winning the Stanley Cup.
