CHICAGO - The Chicago Blackhawks fired coach Joel Quenneville on Tuesday and named Jeremy Colliton to replace him, making him the 38th coach in franchise history.

The Hawks also fired assistant coaches Kevin Dineen and Ulf Samuelsson and named Barry Smith an assistant on Colliton's staff. The rest of the coaching staff will remain with the team.

The Hawks failed to make the playoffs last season for the first time during Quenneville's tenure. They are 6-6-3 this season and have lost five straight, including one in overtime.

Twitter left stunned after Blackhawks fire Joel Quenneville

Twitter left stunned after Blackhawks fire Joel Quenneville The Chicago Blackhawks made a stunning decision in Tuesday to fire longtime head coach Joel Quenneville following the team’s 6-6-3 start, and you may have trouble finding people who agree with the move. While the Blackhawks finished 33-39-10 last year and missed the playoffs, that was the first time they failed to reach the postseason since Quenneville was named the head coach in Chicago back in 2008. They also won three Stanley Cup titles under Quenneville, who was the longest-tenured coach in the NHL. Quenneville was the second-winningest coach in Blackhawks history, and the list of reasons why people believe the 60-year-old deserved to keep his job goes on and on.

The Hawks haven't won a playoff series since winning the Stanley Cup in 2015, their third championship in six years.

"As Chicago Blackhawks fans have seen over the last decade, this organization no longer shies away from making tough decisions or ones based on emotion," owner Rocky Wirtz said in a statement. "Those days are long behind us. Of course, Joel's was difficult, as it should have been. During his tenure as head coach to the Chicago Blackhawks, Joel brought the city of Chicago and our fans three Stanley Cups and an incredible era of hockey.

"When Joel was originally hired into our 2008 season, we had great hope for his potential to take the team to new levels. He went beyond what anyone expected. As difficult as that decision in 2008 was, this one was tougher. But as we look to a future history not yet defined, we believe the change we made today, will provide the Chicago Blackhawks a critical element in achieving our goals of Championships in the future, including this season.

Joel will forever be etched into the most memorable era in Chicago Blackhawk hockey. And for that, we will always be connected and always eternally grateful."

Added general manager Stan Bowman: "This is certainly a very difficult decision. But I believe it is in the best interests of the Blackhawks organization. We need to maximize each and every opportunity with our playoff goals in mind and create continued growth and development throughout our roster at the same time. After much deliberation the last several days, with great respect to what Joel has meant to the Blackhawks, we knew we had to make a change. Along with our appreciation for everything Joel has accomplished for our franchise, we also thank Kevin and Ulf for their many contributions and wish them success in the future.

Quenneville, 60, was the second-winningest coach in franchise history with a record of 452-249-96 in 797 games since 2008. He has the best postseason record in Hawks history, compiling a record of 76-52, including three Stanley Cups - 2010, 2013 and 2015.

Blackhawks hope to halt eight-game skid against Blues

Blackhawks hope to halt eight-game skid against Blues When Jeremy Colliton was handed the reins of the Chicago Blackhawks last week, he understood that there weren't going to be any quick turnarounds. That hasn't changed in the three games Colliton has spent behind the Blackhawks' bench -- all losses, which has extended Chicago's losing streak to eight games heading into Wednesday's game against the St. Louis Blues at the United Center. While the frustration remains present throughout the Blackhawks' roster, the patience that Colliton is being forced to exhibit must also trickle down to his players as they attempt to get things turned around.

Colliton had an eight-year playing career primarily in the NHL and AHL. He appeared in 57 NHL games over five seasons (2005-09, 2010-11) with the New York Islanders, netting three goals and three assists. He was drafted by the Islanders in the second round (58th overall) of the 2003 draft.
