ALBANY, NY — John Quenneville might be new to the American Hockey League playoffs but is no stranger to post-season hockey. His final three seasons spent in the WHL ended with post-season runs where he put up impressive numbers.
The Edmonton native averaged over a point a game with 178 points in 175 games over the course of his final three seasons with the Brandon Wheat Kings, but put up over 1.2 points per playoff game, 59 points in 49 games, in those same three years.
Quenneville knows how important producing in the playoffs is and has proven to step up to the task during the post-season. In Brandon’s 2016 playoff run, he earned 27 points in 21 playoff matchups to help the Wheat Kings to the WHL Championship.
Heading into the post-season with Albany, Quenneville led the team in points with 46 (14g-32a) in 58 games played. He spent some time in New Jersey, playing in 12 games and ending the regular season with four points (1g-3a). In Game 1 against the Toronto Marlies, he netted an unassisted power-play tally helping the Devils to victory and earning his first professional post-season point.
