Chicago updated the condition of coach Joel Quenneville today. Quenneville was hospitalized late Tuesday night after feeling severe discomfort and today Blackhawks team physician Dr. Michael Terry says that Quenneville was hospitalized due to a bleeding ulcer that was caused by aspirin. Quenneville is resting comfortably at the hospital and should be able to be released in the next couple of days.
The pain from an ulcer is pretty foul to deal with and one that’s bad enough to put you in the hospital for a few days has to feel horrendous. While aspirin is the cause of it, we can only hope that the Blackhawks can pick up their play and win a few more games to help make the coach feel a little bit better in the meantime.
Assistant coach Mike Haviland will continue to lead the team while Quenneville is out of action. Last night the team was able to rally around his absence and beat Minnesota 3-1 at home.
