History

2008-09: Alan Quine played for the Toronto Jr. Canadiens of the OJHL. He was chosen in the first round, 2nd overall, of the 2009 OHL Priority Selection by the Kingston Frontenacs.

2009-10: In his OHL rookie season, Quine played in 64 games for the Frontenacs. He scored 11 goals and added 17 assists for 28 points. In 7 playoff games, Quine scored 1 goal and added 2 assists for 3 points. Quine played for Team Ontario at the 2010 World U-17 Hockey Challenge, scoring 1 goal and adding 2 assists for 3 points in 6 games.

2010-11: Quine began the season with the Frontenacs, scoring 4 goals and adding 7 assists for 11 points in 17 games. Quine was dealt to the Peterborough Petes, where he played in 52 games for that club. He scored 22 goals and added 20 assists for 42 points. Quine played for Canada at the 2011 U-18 World Junior Championship, scoring 1 goal and adding 6 assists for 7 points in 7 games.

2011-12: Quine made his pro hockey debut – appearing in three late season games with Detroit’s AHL affiliate Grand Rapids after skating for the OHL’s Peterborough Petes in his third season of junior hockey. He had one assist and was plus-one in his brief time with the Griffins. After opening the year in the Red Wings’ camp, he returned to Peterborough for his first full season with the Petes. Quine was the team’s second-leading scorer behind Rangers’ prospect Andrew Yogan, finishing with 30 goals and 40 assists in 65 games and was minus-19 with 21 penalty minutes. Peterborough missed the OHL playoffs; finishing fourth in the East Division.

2012-13: Quine began his fourth OHL season with Peterborough before being acquired by Belleville in a trade deadline deal. After scoring 9 goals with 17 assists while finishing -14 with 14 penalty minutes in 26 games with the undermanned Petes, he played a key role in Belleville’s East Division first-place finish and conference finals playoff run. Quine scored 14 goals with 27 assists in 28 regular season games and was +29 with 6 penalty minutes. He was the Bulls’ third-leading scorer in the playoffs, scoring 8 goals with 7 assists in 17 games, and was +9 with 6 penalty minutes. Quine was not signed to a contract by the Red Wings and re-entered the 2013 NHL Draft. He was selected by the New York Islanders in the sixth round (166th overall).

2013-14: Signed to a three-year entry-level contract by the Islanders in September 2013, Quine played for Bridgeport in the AHL as a 20-year-old and skated for the ECHL’s Stockton Thunder. He scored 8 goals with 19 assists and was minus-24 with 23 assists in 61 AHL games. Bridgeport finished fifth in the Northeast Division; missing the AHL playoffs. Quine played seven regular season games with Stockton and scored 2 goals with 6 assists, finishing minus-3 with 2 penalty minutes. The Thunder finished third in the Pacific Division and advanced to the second round in the playoffs. Quine scored 3 goals with 1 assist in eight playoff games and was an even plus/minus with no penalties. 

Talent Analysis

Quine's best asset is his skating ability, as he possesses great speed and acceleration. While he has some untapped offensive potential, Quine;s calling card is his two-way play. He is solid in the face-off circle and uses his speed to create a strong forecheck. In order to become a more effective player at the NHL level, Quine will have to bulk up and prove that he can perform against more physical players.

Future

Quine attended his second training camp with the Islanders before being assigned to AHL affiliate Bridgeport to start the 2014-15 season. Off to a fast start, he was leading the Sound Tigers in scoring and scoring at a point-per-game pace after 15 games. A late round selection in 2013, Quine faces a steep battle to find ice time at the NHL level in an organization with several young forward prospects. His early season scoring at the AHL level has likely opened some eyes around the league if an opportunity is not available with the Islanders.

Scorers and score stoppers make up the majority of the Dallas Stars’ junior prospect contingent. With goaltenders Philippe Desrosiers and Brent Moran in prominent roles out east and noteworthy scorers like Cole Ully and Brett Pollock in the west, the Stars are represented well across Canadian Major Juniors. Many of their prospects have moved on from junior programs at this point and, as a result, they have fewer players developing in the CHL.

As exciting as hockey players are on the ice, they are notorious for being boring off the ice. If you’ve heard one post-game interview, you’ve heard them all. Most hockey players respond to questions with the same robotic cliches – “We, uhh, just need to, uhh,focus on the, uhhh, next game. We need to just, uhhh, continue to play our, uh, style of game; play a full, uh, 60 minutes, get, uh, pucks in deep and finish our checks, get shots on, uh, net, and create, uh, chances…uh.” Read more»
