College Hockey:
Quenneville leaving Quinnipiac, will join major junior team

Forward Peter Quenneville is leaving Quinnipiac just nine games into his freshman season.

Quenneville confirmed the decision, first reported Tuesday by SB Nation, in a message to USCHO’s Brian Sullivan. He declined further comment.

A seventh-round pick by Columbus in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, Quenneville had four assists in five games with the Bobcats. He missed the team’s last four games.

The Brandon Wheat Kings of the major junior Western Hockey League announced Tuesday that they had acquired Quenneville’s rights. His brother, John, is a center for the Wheat Kings.

Peter Quenneville was a second-team all-USHL selection last season for the Dubuque Fighting Saints, posting 33 goals and 70 points.
