He had no points nor penalties in his only game with  Lake Erie. Quenneville steadily worked his way into the lineup for the Cyclones as a 21-year-old.

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 is skating for the ECHL's Cincinnati Cyclones in 2015-16. Since he was drafted while playing college hockey, the Blue Jackets have until June 2017 to sign him to an NHL contract. His playmaking ability and awareness suggest there is some potential but he is still fairly low in the pecking order amongst Blue Jackets' prospects.

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»

The Columbus Blue Jackets have a good mix of high-end offensive talent and grinders competing in the CHL. Oliver Bjorkstrand and Sonny Milano lead the finesse forwards with high ceilings, while Blake Siebenaler heads a group of defenders that love jumping in on the rush.

The Columbus Blue Jackets have a well-rounded system. Although Alexander Wennberg and Marko Dano will likely graduate from their prospect status after opening the 2014-15 season in the NHL, Columbus concentrated on reinforcing its pool of young talent in the 2014 NHL Draft. From sizable, gritty players to smooth skating, offensive-minded skaters, the Blue Jackets have a good amount of depth throughout. They also have plenty of competition among their prospects in net.
