On the eve of the 2021 NHL season, the Chicago Blackhawks formally announced Head Coach Jeremy Colliton’s two-year extension. The extension runs through the 2022-23 season.
Colliton received an early birthday present. He will turn 36 years old on the NHL’s opening day, his third season as Blackhawks head coach.
Since taking over as head coach for Joel Quenneville in 2018, Colliton owns a 62-58-17 record, as well as a 2020 NHL Playoff appearance.
Despite the lack of meaningful success, Stan Bowman believes that Colliton is the right man to lead this team during a rebuild. The team is increasingly growing younger, which one would think should benefit Colliton. He compiled a 40-28-4-4 record and a deep playoff run with the IceHogs before assuming the role of Blackhawks Head Coach.
