Ken Hitchcock Gets 800th Career Win 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat Dec 23, 2017 12:33 am

Ken Hitchcock became the third coach in NHL history to reach 800 career wins in the Stars' 4-0 victory over the Blackhawks on Thursday night.

After the game, he was quickly congratulated by Chicago counterpart Joel Quenneville, who ranks second on the career list with 868 coaching wins. Scotty Bowman is the all-time leader with 1,244 wins.

"Congratulations from Joel means more than anything,'' Hitchcock said. "We've had so much mutual respect from each other and helped each other along the way when we were both kind of in the down and outs. Coming from him, it means more than the number.''

Coached his way to 800 wins. Can't argue with the results.
