He scored 33 goals with 37 assists and was plus-29 with 18 penalty minutes in 63 games. Dubuque lost just 11 of 64 games in the regular season and was 9-2 in the playoffs. Quenneville scored 6 goals with 3 assists and was plus-4 with 2 penalty minutes in nine playoff games. He was selected to play in the USHL/NHL Top Prospects Game and was named to the USHL’s second all-star team. Quenneville was ranked 130th amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting’s final rankings in his second year of draft eligibility and was selected by Columbus in the seventh round (195th overall) in the 2013 NHL Draft.

Talent Analysis

Quenneville has good hands and has turned heads with his offensive agility. He is an offensive-minded forward that relies on his smooth hands to create scoring chances. His stick handling allows him to create opportunities whether he is by himself or coming down ice on odd man rushes. Quenneville has an improved scoring touch and shows his vision in the offensive zone. His stocky build allows him to fight for pucks in the corner and along the boards.  

Future

Quenneville competed for the Columbus entry in the Traverse City rookie tournament and attended his first NHL training camp with the Blue Jackets before being returned to Brandon for an overage season in 2014-15. Skating on one of the WHL's teams along with his younger brother John Quenneville (Devils), he is among the team leaders in assists. As with many players looking to make the transition from junior to pro hockey, particularly late round picks, he will need to improve his mobility, bulk and strength to compete at the NHL level. Like several other forwards in the Columbus pipeline the strength of his game is his playmaking and he projects as a solid two-way forward if he continues to develop.

Injuries forced the Blue Jackets to dig into their prospect pool this season. That allowed highly-touted first rounders Alexander Wennberg, Marko Dano and Kerby Rychel to get their first taste of NHL action. Columbus also had a few pleasant surprises; Anton Forsberg came into his own between the pipes, and Austin Madaisky has had a breakout season on the blue line for the Falcons. Read more»
