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.


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.

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.

The Detroit Red Wings have several talented prospects playing in the CHL, boasting players who offer a mix of both offensive talent and physicality. There are three players in the OHL, two in the QMJHL and three from the WHL.


Petr Mrazek, G, Ottawa 67's
Acquired: 5th round (141st overall) in 2010

While Mrazek was one of the top goalies in the OHL through the first ten games of the season, his play has slowed down a bit since. He has started in 23 of Ottawa's 26 games this year, posting a 3.10 goals against average and .910 save percentage.

Detroit Red Wings Depth Analysis, Fall 2011

Despite all of their playoff and regular season success over the past number of years, the Detroit Red Wings have still managed to draft some talented prospects. While none of the players will stand out as blue-chip prospects, Detroit does have notable depth – especially at the forward position.

The Red Wings are probably strongest at the left wing in terms of pure talent, even though it has the lowest number of prospects among the forwards ranks. Right wing and center are fairly strong as well, boasting talent, grit, and defensive savvy.

On the blue line, Detroit will be looking to some 2011 draftees – Xavier Ouellet and Ryan Sproul – to bolster a pool of prospects that has not met expectations. While there is surely talent on amongst the defense corps, there are also several question marks. The Red Wings' goaltending depth is in a similar situation as well, with several prospects not meeting their expected potential.

Detroit Red Wings 2011 draft review

The Red Wings maintained their recent trend of looking towards the CHL with their early picks and adding depth later in the draft with prospects playing overseas. The team's first five selections all came from Canadian Major Junior leagues, with six total CHL picks in the 2011 draft class equally distributed among the QMJHL, OHL, and WHL.

Detroit made nine total selections in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft and came away with five defensemen and four forwards. The club traded their first round pick (24th overall) to Ottawa in exchange for a pair of second round picks at 35th and 48th, and the team still came away with a prospect considered by many a first round talent. With the blue line a hot topic of debate in Detroit after the retirement of Brian Rafalski, the team added a pair of high-end defensive prospects in the second round. Three more defensemen were added late in the draft, strengthening one of the system's weaker positions.
