Blackhawks coach Joel Quennevile apologizes for crotch-grabbing incident


In case you didn’t stay up late last night as the Chicago Blackhawks and St. Louis first game of their series went into triple overtime, you missed Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville getting a little heated in the second overtime with the officials who he believed missed a call.

Earlier on Friday there was some talk that the NHL would be looking into this reaction that Quenneville apologized for this afternoon, calling it a bush-league move.

As far as potential discipline from the league, he has not heard from the league about the gesture, at least not yet.

If the NHL deems the gesture worthy of penalty, expect it to be in the form of a stiff fine.

The Blackhawks and Blues resume their series on Saturday at 3:00 p.m. ET with the Blackhawks looking to een up the series.

    Coach Q. We’re all passionate about our Hawks and your players may benefit from that, so I’m certain you’ll channel that passion in a different way should you be so justified! Go Hawks!
