After the Hawks made a series of substantial roster moves at the end of the last two seasons, the rich, hearty mustache of coach Joel Quenneville is now the only remaining contributer left on the team that won the 2010 Stanley Cup.

Quenneville’s mustache, which is under contract through the 2013-2014 season, has been a consistent producer for the Blackhawks team, and has the full backing of GM Scotty Bowman.

In a statement regarding the state of Quenneville’s mustache, Bowman claimed, “Quenneville’s mustache is truly the face of this franchise. While players like Brian Campbell, Dustin Byfuglien, and Kris Versteeg were all crucial to the success of the 2010 team, we felt it was in our best interest to do whatever necessary to ensure that Quenneville’s mustache could stay a member of this squad.”

Bowman’s statement ended with the announcement that Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews had been traded to the Carolina Panthers for a pair of draft picks and a “gritty” third line defenseman.
