Jeremy Colliton is growing a mustache while the NHL is on pause due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Blackhawks coach showed off his new lip sweater Tuesday on Twitter with the caption, “How am I doing? @CoachQsMustache”. Colliton is also missing a tooth in the photo.
It’s a different look for Colliton, who usually sports a 5 o’clock shadow look.
Coach Q’s mustache is a Twitter parody account run by Elmhurst resident Chris Malcolm in tribute to Joel Quenneville’s iconic mustache. Quenneville won three Stanley Cup championships as the Blackhawks head coach in 2010, 2013 and 2015 before he was fired in November 2018. Colliton was promoted to be Quenneville’s successor and Quenneville waited out the season before being named the Panthers head coach.
Malcolm responded with, “I don’t mind him. Somewhere between ordinary and special. We’ll know more tomorrow.” He then followed up with “needs a little more grey. That said, I see a lot of potential here.”
