The Chicago Blackhawks fired head coach Joel Quenneville on Tuesday and named Jeremy Colliton his replacement.

Chicago also parted ways with assistant coaches Kevin Dineen and Ulf Samuelsson. The team added Barry Smith as an assistant under Colliton.

Quenneville had spent the past 11 seasons as Chicago’s head coach, but the Blackhawks are off to a 6-6-3 start in 2018-19. They are two points out of a top-eight playoff spot in the Western Conference and in the midst of a three-game losing streak.
