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: Quine signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Islanders in September 2013, playing for Bridgeport in the AHL as a 20-year-old and skating 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. 

2014-15: Quine was the leading scorer for Islanders’ AHL affiliate Bridgeport in his second pro season. He scored 23 goals with 38 assists and was -11 with 34 penalty minutes, skating in a team-high 75 of 76 games for the Sound Tigers. Bridgeport missed the playoffs, finishing last in the Northeast Division.

Talent Analysis

Quine's best asset is his skating ability, as he possesses great speed and acceleration. He led the Bridgeport Sound Tigers in scoring in 2014-15 but his calling card is his two-way play. He is solid in the face-off circle and uses his speed to create a strong forecheck. Quine will have to continue to add bulk and prove that he can perform against more physical players to play in the NHL.

Future

Quine is in his third season with the AHL's Bridgeport Sound Tigers in 2015-16. In the final year of his original entry-level deal he is again among the Sound Tigers' leading scorers but has yet to crack the lineup in New York. His success in Bridgeport could generate interest from other clubs if he is not re-signed by the Islanders. Quine projects at the NHL level as a two-way lower line forward with the ability to score goals.

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.
