Alexandria’s Jeremy Quesnel has been acquired by the CCHL Hawkesbury Hawks, in a trade with the Cornwall Colts. Hawkesbury’s junior ‘A’ hockey club took to Twitter to make the announcement.
The 18-year-old from Alexandria was part of the Colts organization for three seasons. In the 2016-17 campaign, Quesnel skated with the U18 team, posting 45 points over 51 games (regular season and playoffs). The following year, with the junior ‘A’ club, the forward had 15 points in 61 games, and last season he recorded 25 points in 59 contests.
The CCHL Colts drafted Quesnel in 2016, 15th overall, in the Bantam Protected Draft. He received the trade news by way of a phone call while at school (Quesnel attends le Relais, in Alexandria) from Hawkesbury’s head coach.
On the move to the Hawks, Quesnel tells me, “I’m very excited to start this year, meet all the staff and teammates.”
To his supporters, he posted this message on Twitter: “I’d like to thank @CornwallColts for the last 3 years. I got to meet a lot of good people, teammates, and will miss the fans of Cornwall. That said, I’m very excited to get things started with the Flock. @hawkesburyhawks!! #FearTheFlock
