Rush re-sign captain Quenneville

RAPID CITY, S.D. – The Rapid City Rush, ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Arizona Coyotes, announced that forward Peter Quenneville has re-signed with the Rush for the 2020-21 season.

Quenneville returns to the Rush for his second season with the organization. Last season, he led the team with 58 points while he was tied for tops on the team with 24 goals. In addition, he earned an American Hockey League call-up to the Rockford IceHogs, where he appeared in seven games.

“The way things left off last year, there’s a lot left on the table for our team. There’s a hunger and a drive to come back to a team that looks to be well put together heading into next season. It’s an exciting opportunity to be a part of,” Quenneville remarked on his re-signing with the Rush. “We had a great group of guys, an incredible staff, and what more can I say about the fans? It was all first class. Coming into next season, I hope to continue to be a leader on this team, and continue to contribute at a high level. As a team, I think our goal has to be to win the Mountain Division title and take care of things in the toughest division in the league in our quest to win a Kelly Cup Championship. To the fans, please continue to be safe and healthy, and get ready to rock the Civic Center when we see you again. I can’t wait to be back!”

A native of Edmonton, Alberta, Quenneville enters his sixth season as a professional. In his ECHL career, he has logged 109 games with the Rush and the Cincinnati Cyclones, earning 84 points (35g-49a). His career has taken him all over the world, making stops in North America, Norway, the Czech Republic, Finland and Denmark. With the Aalborg Pirates in Denmark, Quenneville captured the league’s goal-scoring title with 30 in 45 games in the 2016-17 season, and helped the Pirates capture the Danish League and Danish Cup championships in 2018.

Prior to beginning his professional career, he played two years in the Alberta Junior Hockey League with the Sherwood Park Crusaders, one year in the United States Hockey League with the Dubuque Fighting Saints, less than a season in the NCAA with Qunnipiac University and two years in the Western Hockey League with the Brandon Wheat Kings. In his lone season with Dubuque, he won the 2013 Clark Cup championship. Quenneville was selected by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the seventh round (195th overall) of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
