Coach Q is Back!

Coach Q was at practice this morning. He was skating and blowing the whistle like he hadn't even left.

"I was on IR for a week. We'll call it an upper-body injury. (I'm) all good to go. The only pain I was in for the last week was sitting in the hospital watching games."

It's great to have Coach Q back!
It's comforting being able to look at the bench and seeing the mustache.


“Having him back, it’s just brings a little more familiarity to the group as far as line calls, play calls, stuff like that. He jumped right back in at practice and looked excited."

The Hawks may have been mustache-less for several games, but they weren't lacking in good coaching.

Gotta tip your helmet to Haviland for stepping in and doing a great job.


" 'Havi' knows the systems, how calls are made and what guys to use in certain situations. I'd say 3-1 is a pretty good start to his head-coaching career.''
