John Dunbar leaves Quinnipiac

Quinnipiac sophomore forward John Dunbar left the team earlier this week, and joined the Fort McMurray Oil Barons of the Alberta Junior Hockey League.

Dunbar, who made the Bobcats trip to Nebraska-Omaha last week and played in one of two games, walked into coach Rand Pecknold's office Monday and informed him of his decision. Pecknold, through Quinnipiac sports information director Ken Sweeten, said Dunbar left for "unspecified reasons".

The decision came as a surprise to Pecknold and everyone else in the Quinnipiac locker room. Dunbar was an exceptional student, well-liked and showed outstanding worth ethic in practice that translated to his performance in games. He was described as a great kid who had an outstanding relationship with just about everybody he came in contact with at Quinnipiac.

He had six points in 21 games this season after playing in 30 games as a freshman. Dunbar played in the AJHL prior to enrolling at Quinnipiac, practiced with Fort McMurray on Thursday and was scheduled to play tonight.
