Chicago Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville was sent to the emergency room Tuesday night after experiencing what is described as severe discomfort while at his suburban Chicago home.

On Wednesday, the Blackhawks only said in a statement that the “undisclosed health concern” was “not of a cardiac nature.”

But on Thursday morning Versus Sports Network analyst Kelly Chase said Quenneville had suffered “a little bit of internal bleeding that couldn’t stop.”

Assistant coach Mike Haviland filled in as “acting head coach” for Wednesday night’s game against the Minnesota Wild.

“We’re all professionals,” Haviland said. “We can move forward. I mean, our thoughts are for sure with him and his wife and his kids. But certainly these guys are professionals and we know what’s at hand here.”

Although without Quenneville, the Blackhawks thrived against the Wild Wednesday night.

Troy Brouwer’s perfectly placed centering pass went off a Minnesota defenseman for the tiebreaking goal in the third period, helping Corey Crawford lead the Blackhawks to beat the Wild 3-1.
