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).

 

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 can be best described as a two-way player. 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 play.

 

Future

He will return to the Peterborough Petes in 2012-13 and, should his strong offensive play continue, could earn a contract from the Red Wings. He must sign by June 1, 2013.

Spring is just around the corner, and as the weather heats up so too does the on-ice action in leagues around the world. As we reach the end of the season in junior hockey and the stretch run in professional hockey we pause to look back at how prospects in the Detroit Red Wings organization have progressed since the puck first dropped last fall.

The Detroit Red Wings have a great deal of prospect depth in their organization, but the vast majority of that depth is currently at the professional level. While many of Detroit’s top tier prospects are playing for either the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins or the ECHL’s Toledo Walleye, there are still many prospects plying their trade at the junior level.

A paradigm shift occurred for the Detroit Red Wings after the 2004-05 NHL lockout. Gone were the days where Detroit would readily hand out early-round draft picks in exchange for veteran NHL talent. Instead, Detroit decided that they would need to hold on to their draft choices in order to build a prospect pool with skill and size that would help them compete in the new-look NHL.
