The Chicago Blackhawks fired coach Joel Quenneville on Tuesday.

Quenneville, who won three Stanley Cups with the Blackhawks, had been with the team since 2008 and was the longest-tenured coach in the NHL.

Quenneville, is the second-winningest coach in NHL history, totaling a staggering 890 wins with St. Louis, Colorado and Chicago; only Scotty Bowman (1,244) has more.

Chicago promoted its AHL coach, Jeremy Colliton, 33, who becomes the youngest head coach in the NHL.

Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews said of Quenneville’s firing: “Definite shock. I didn’t think there was going to be a change for a while.”
