The screenshot above clearly shows that a rage-quitting player (right) will receive a death's head icon on their profile, while the player that never rage-quits (left) will get a shield icon.

According to the tutorial tooltip "Penalties will be incurred for disconnecting during a match, including LP (League Points) reduction, and temporary matchmaking restrictions."
