With Wednesday night's 4-0 victory over the St. Louis Blues, Chicago Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville became just the third coach in NHL history to reach 700 regular season wins, joining Hall of Famers Scotty Bowman (1,244) and Al Arbour (782).

Hired by the St. Louis in 1996, Quenneville led the Blues to seven straight playoff appearances and won the 1999-2000 Jack Adams Award as the NHL's coach of the year as the team took the Presidents' Trophy. He also spent three seasons in Colorado before landing in Chicago.

Since becoming the head coach of the Blackhawks in 2008, Quenneville has won two Stanley Cups, making him the only active coach with multiple rings, and he has led his club into the playoffs each season he has been behind its bench.

The 55-year-old is also one of only two men in the history of the NHL to have played in 800 or more games and coached 1,000 or more, the other being Jacques Lemaire.
