John Quenneville

The second cousin to legendary Chicago Blackhawks’ head coach, Joel Quenneville, John was drafted in the first round by the New Jersey Devils in 2014.

He’s 23-years-old and time is running out. Time ran out for Quenneville in New Jersey; he had three NHL stints and never stuck on the roster.

The good news for him is he’s been able to produce at the AHL level and the Blackhawks have a knack for making change-of-scenery trades work out.

John Quenneville is no longer waiver exempt, so he may get a longer look than some other prospects; it’ll be bad if he has a rough training camp though. Hopefully, he can get back to plays like this:
