Report: Quenneville Suffered Internal Bleeding

CHICAGO (CBS) — A report Thursday morning says Chicago Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville was suffering from internal bleeding when he was taken to the emergency room Tuesday night from suburban Chicago home.

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

Doctors have been trying to find out the source of the internal bleeding, Chase said.

Chase said he spoke to Quenneville, who was “in great spirits” eager to get back to work.

“He was light-hearted, he said, ‘Hey, I’m going to be in the next game,” Quenneville said.

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

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.
