Quenneville Offers To Participate In Blackhawks Review

CHICAGO (CBS/AP) -- Florida Panthers coach Joel Quenneville has offered to participate in the Chicago Blackhawks' review of allegations by a former player who says he was sexually assaulted by a then-assistant coach in 2010.

Quenneville, 62, coached Chicago to three Stanley Cup titles over 10-plus seasons before he was fired by the team in November 2018.

He was hired by Florida in April 2019.

A former federal prosecutor has been hired by the Blackhawks to conduct an independent investigative review of the allegations in a pair of lawsuits filed against the franchise.
