Quick Career At Michigan

It's being reported that Michigan defenseman Kevin Quick is no longer a member of Michigan's hockey team, after a violation of team rules. Obviously it must have been a pretty serious violation for him to receive the axe so quickly.

Quick wasn't a huge contributor to Michigan's team this year, but was expected to be in future years. He was a 3rd round selection of the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. Quick was picked last summer by the Sarnia Sting of the OHL. I'm not sure if they still have his rights, and I'm pretty sure the deadline has passed for OHL teams to add players, so I'm not sure where he'll play for the rest of the season. I'm sure one of the multiple OHL-employee commenters here can fill us in.

Hes done with the OHL. The Van Ryan rule. A 19yr old had to sign by the trade deadline which is also the last day to add a new player (FA,Draft). He'll either go to the USHL or sign with Tampa Bay. I'd say if he signs he'll be sent to the ECHL.

wow, could this be the beginning of problems for the young MI team?
Most teams sweep this stuff under the rug. Had to be real serious.

He could indeed go to Sarnia. If he was already 20, then no.

Uh, Chris, you forgot to somehow blame this on the NCAA hockey decision and say "if he had only chosen the OHL, he could have violated team rules all he wanted, still played more games, and would be an NHL star within the next 2 years instead of the next 3."

Just saying.

Des Moines-USHL added him to the roster.

Maybe to trade?

Or try to keep around for next season.

Since it had nothing to do with the police, immediate dismissals usually are from something directly involving the head coach.

Anybody with any kind of clue about the situation says the law is going to be involved in this situation.
