The Chicago Blackhawks will announce a contract extension for coach Joel Quenneville on Friday, the Chicago Tribune reports.
The length and value of the deal aren't known, but Quenneville's current contract was set to expire after the 2013-14 season.
Quenneville, who has coached the team since the 2008-09 season, just led the Blackhawks to their second Stanley Cup title in the past four seasons.
Earlier this month, Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman hinted that a new deal was in the works.
"It's always good to get those things done in the summertime and sort of clear the deck to focus on hockey starting in the fall," Bowman told the Chicago Tribune.
In 372 regular season games with Chicago, Quenneville is 222-106-44 and has reached the playoffs in each of his five seasons. This past season, which was shortened by a lockout, he guided the team to an NHL-best 77 points.
Prior to taking over in Chicago, Quenneville coached the St. Louis Blues from the 1996-97 season through the 2003-04 season and the Colorado Avalanche from the 2005-06 season through the 2007-08 season.

Quinnville has guided the Blackhawks to two Stanley Cup titles in the last four seasons.

Given a) the Evening Line, b) the fact that we're kind of sitting on the, "Report: Joel Quenneville to receive contract extension Friday" story because it hasn't happened yet and c) there's actually a significant amount of other stuff going on, I really don't want to post yet another Roberto Luongo-gate article...

The Chicago Blackhawks embarked on their sixth annual fan convention July 26, and more than a few fans showed up.
I did what any self-respecting person would do and pay more than their fair share of money to attend the convention. I showed up with a couple of friends, went through the painfully long check-in line, and cringed at the length of the line for opening ceremonies at 12...
