New York Islanders prospect David Quenneville’s season has come to an end in the WHL. He can be AHL bound sooner than expected.
The Medicine Hat Tigers season came to an end yesterday. What does that have to do with the New York Islanders one might ask? Well, their 20-year-old former 2016 draft pick is now available to come to the U.S.
The Islanders selected David Quenneville in the seventh round of the 2016 draft. He’s an offensive defender who really broke onto the scene this year.
In 70 games Quenneville put up 80 points (26 goals, 54 assists). He led the entire WHL in points for defensemen. That’s why Arthur Staple reported that the Islanders are trying to get Quenneville in here on an ATO (tryout contract) with the Sound Tigers.
Quenneville is severely undersized at just five-foot-eight and 187 pounds. Unfortunately, that’s the main reason his draft stock was so low just two years ago. With the number of points he put up in 2017-2018 in the WHL it can’t hurt to see what he has at the AHL level.
Oddly enough David Quenneville is related to Johnny Boychuk as well. Technically speaking Johnny is David’s Uncle (through marriage). It seems like he’s been practicing with Uncle John. His shot looks a lot better this year.
