Peter Abbandonato, born in Laval, Quebec, is an extremely skilled player, presently playing for the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies of the QMJHL.
After two extremely successful seasons playing Bantam AA in Laval, where he scored 35 goals and 69 points in 55 games, Abbandonato took his talents to Midget AAA where he scored seven goals and 46 points in 56 games, over two years. He was also the winner of the QMAAA Most Sportsmanlike Player in 2013-14.
In 2014, Abbandonato’s impressive offensive abilities got him drafted in the 2nd round, 32nd overall by the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies. In the summer of 2014, Peter was invited to Hockey Canada’s U-17 Development camp. This camp identified the top talent in Canada for the ’98 age group.
Peter started off the 2015-16 season on a high, as he was 2nd in scoring in the QMJHL pre-season, putting up 9 points in 6 games. His impressive pre-season performance landed him a spot on the Huskies roster, and Peter did not disappoint by playing 64 games and scoring 25 points as a rookie in the league. Peter had a solid playoffs scoring 11 points in 20 games, and helped the Huskies as they won the Presidents Cup and went on to the memorial cup finals where they fell short in the finals to the London Knights.
Peter continued his success for the Huskies in the 2016-17 season racking up 56 points in 64 games, making him a serious offensive threat in the QMJHL. Peter and the Huskies had an exceptional season, finishing second place in the QMJHL season and made it to the second round of the playoffs. Peter was dominant in the playoffs, scoring 14 points in 13 games, and had a clear presence every time he was on the ice.
Peter is expected to rejoin the Huskies next year as a veteran on the team and hopes to lead his team to a memorial cup championship. CEM is extremely proud of Peters performance and growth throughout the years, and it is safe to say that Peter is one of our most promising prospects!VIEW PLAYER STATS
