John Quenneville

Aaron Vickers

Quenneville is a big-bodied forward with strong shoulders. He is not the fastest skater in the league, but he definitely has some good quickness in tight to go along with a technically sound stride. Flipped between center and the wing this season, but overall, we liked his defensive commitment and positioning in both roles. Shows some solid backcheck pressure and is physically involved in the corners. Shows very good work along the walls using his strength and hockey sense. Always seems to end up on the winning end of puck battles and cycle confrontations. His cycle work is very strong, using a combination of his feet and good puck skills to maintain possession while looking for options. Shows a good, hard shot, and pretty good release with solid velocity and accuracy. We would like to see a little more offensive creativity. A pro-style forward who has a physical element to his game, a good shot, and who works hard in all three zones. (May 2014)
