Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville Friday was announced as a finalist for the 2013 Jack Adams Award, given annually to the coach who contributed the most to his team’s success.
Bruce Boudreau of the Anaheim Ducks and Paul MacLean of Ottawa Senators were also named finalists.

Quenneville, who led the Hawks to the Stanley Cup in 2010, leads active coaches and shares sixth in NHL history with 660 career regular-season victories. The former defenseman already has one Adams Trophy for guiding the Blues to the league's best record in 2000. He and Jacques Lemaire share the distinction of being the only two in NHL history to coach 1,000 games and play in 800.
