John Quenneville (born April 16, 1996) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player currently playing as a prospect to the Chicago Blackhawks of the National Hockey League (NHL). Quenneville was selected by the New Jersey Devils in the first round (30th overall) of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career[edit]

Junior[edit]

Quenneville was selected by the Brandon Wheat Kings in the 3rd round (54th overall) of the 2011 WHL Bantam Draft.[1] He played with the Brandon Wheat Kings from the 2012–13 WHL season to 2015–16 WHL season.[2]

While playing with the Wheat Kings, Quenneville was rated as a top prospect who was viewed as a possible first round selection heading into the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.[3][4] He was eventually drafted 30th overall by the New Jersey Devils in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

Professional[edit]

On July 13, 2015, Quenneville signed a three-year entry level contract with the Devils,[5] and after concluding his WHL career that season he subsequently joined the Albany Devils for the 2016–17 season. He made his NHL debut on December 1, 2016, against the Chicago Blackhawks.[6] On January 5, 2017, Quennville was named to the 2017 AHL All-Star Classic, along with Joseph Blandisi.[7] He was recalled to the NHL on March 15, 2017,[8] and scored his first NHL goal in a 3–2 overtime win over the New York Rangers on March 21, 2017.[9]

On June 22, 2019, Quenneville was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for John Hayden.[10] On June 28, the Blackhawks signed Quenneville to a two-year contract extension.[11]

International play[edit]

As a 16-year-old, Quenneville was chosen to compete with the Canada Pacific squad at the 2013 World U-17 Hockey Challenge,[12] and he helped Team Canada capture the bronze medal at the 2014 IIHF World U18 Championships.[13]

Personal life[edit]

His older brother Peter Quenneville was drafted in the seventh round by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft,[14] and his younger brother David was drafted 200th overall in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.[15] Former Chicago Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville is his first cousin, once-removed.[16][17] New York Islanders defenceman Johnny Boychuk is his uncle by marriage.
