3 possible coaching destinations for Joel Quenneville
3 possible coaching destinations for Joel Quenneville next season are the Toronto Maple Leafs, Vancouver Canucks and Anaheim Ducks.

Joel Quenneville would like to get back into coaching in the NHL but he will have to get NHL commissioner Gary Bettman’s approval for it to happen.

Why did Joel Quenneville resign from coaching?

Joel Quenneville resigned as head coach of the Florida Panthers last year after specifics were revealed of how the Chicago Blackhawks mishandled sexual abuse allegations by a video coach in 2010. Quenneville was the Blackhawks head coach when the alleged abuse occurred.

Quenneville is eager to get back to coaching, any team interested would have to go through the Florida Panthers and also Gary Bettman. Bettman has to clear Quenneville to return, that has not happened yet and some believe that won’t happen until next season.

Which team will Joel Quenneville coach next?

If Joel Quenneville is indeed reinstated by the league, what teams would have interest in the three time Stanley Cup winning coach?

Toronto Maple Leafs

The Toronto Maple Leafs are playoff contenders but if they cannot get past the first round of the playoffs once again, you can kiss GM Kyle Dubas and coach Sheldon Keefe’s job goodbye.

The next Leafs GM would have a serious interest in Joel Quenneville if he is reinstated by the league. He could be the coach to get the Leafs past the first round of the playoffs.

Vancouver Canucks

The Bruce Boudreau experiment is not working out in Vancouver. They will not fire Boudreau this year as they are still paying former head coach Travis Green.

Canucks management could look into a Quenneville hire next season in the hopes of finding a coach to get the Canucks over their struggles and into the playoffs.

Anaheim Ducks

The Anaheim Ducks sit last in the NHL will 11 points (5-11-1) in 17 games. They are all-in in the tank nation battle for drafting Connor Bedard #1 overall.

If the Ducks continue their horrid play and not getting out the production expected from Troy Terry, Trevor Zegras and Mason McTavish a coaching change will be in order in the offseason and Quenneville could be the coach to turn things around for the Ducks.
