2006-07: Played for the Rocky Mountain Wrangler midget team in Colorado. Selected by the Waterloo Black Hawks in the 2007 USHL Entry Draft with the 18th overall pick.
2007-08: The Sioux City Musketeers (USHL) gained a forward in Quailer this season. In 60 games he scored 19 goals and 49 points (T-1st), racking up 55 penalty minutes in the process. His plus-16 was among the best on Sioux City, and he was named the Sioux City MVP and Rookie of the Year. He was also nominated to the USHL All-Rookie Team and competed in the USHL All-Star game.
2008-09: This was the winger’s rookie season with Northeastern University (H-East). In 41 games he netted 10 goals (third on team) and 25 points (fourth on team). He was the Huskies’ Rookie of the Year and nominated to the H-East All-Rookie squad. He shares the ice with fellow Sioux City alum Alex Tuckerman.
2009-10: A knee injury held Quailer out for the entire season.
2010-11: Quailer returned to the Northeastern University lineup as a junior after missing the previous season with a leg injury and provided a physical presence up front for the Huskies. Quailer scored 3 goals with 19 assists and was +1 with 39 PMs in 38 games. Northeastern finished with a sub .500 record but was sixth in the tightly-packed Hockey East conference and knocked off Boston University in a three-game quarterfinal series before falling to Boston College in a semifinal contest.
2011-12: Quailer put in a solid junior year at Northeastern University despite missing the month of February with a sprained ACL to the same knee that forced the big winger to miss a whole year of NCAA play in 2009-10. He scored eight goals (four on the power play and one shorthanded) along with 17 assists and a plus seven rating in 26 NCAA games. The physical forward played at a point per game level this year and was signed to an NHL entry level contract on June 14, 2012 with the Montreal Canadiens.
Quailer brings leadership, character, and energy along with his physicality and strong play in the corners while making time and space for him and his line mates. The big winger has to stay healthy and show he can develop into a power forward but will need to learn not to take bad penalties at the wrong times in order to have success at the professional level in the AHL or NHL.
