The Chicago Blackhawks had a very interesting unprotected list for the Seattle Kraken to choose from in the 2021 NHL Expansion Draft. It seemed pretty clear that one of Nikita Zadorov or Calvin de Haan was going to be selected but that was not the case. Instead, they took a forward but it wasn’t one of the forwards that you would expect either. They decided to go with John Quenneville as their selection from the Blackhawks. That is straight out of left field.
Quenneville was drafted by the New Jersey Devils in the first round of the 2014 NHL Draft. He never really succeeded there so they traded him to the Blackhawks in exchange for John Hayden. It was pretty much one team’s bad player for another team’s bad player. With Chicago, Quenneville never got much better.
