Few individuals in the NHL evoke more debate than Joel Quenneville, formerly of the Florida Panthers. His competence in coaching is unquestionable, yet the off-ice controversies accompanying him could overshadow any on-ice advantages.

Upcoming Meeting: Quenneville and Bettman to Discuss Potential Return



A few years back, the NHL witnessed a shake-up when Quenneville was dismissed following the exposure of the unsettling assault coverup case tied to the Blackhawks.

At the height of the scandal, Quenneville was the team's coach, a situation that led to his departure along with the exit of other influential figures in the league.


Rumor has it that Bettman and Quenneville have scheduled a tête-à-tête to ponder over Quenneville's future in the NHL. They will weigh up whether he should be granted permission to return to coaching.
