NORFOLK, Va. – The Norfolk Admirals have recalled defensemen Kevin Quick from the Florida Everblades of the ECHL, Admirals General Manager Julien BriseBois announced today.
Quick, 23, a 6-foot, 190-pound defenseman born in Buffalo, New York, has spent the majority of the last five seasons with the Admirals. In 11 games with Norfolk this season, he has posted two assists, two penalty minutes and a plus-3 rating. He was assigned to the Everblades on January 12 and appeared in two games with Florida, posting an assist with an even plus/minus rating. The Admirals signed Quick to an American Hockey League Standard Player's Contract on June 27, 2011.
Quick established AHL career highs in assists and points last season with Norfolk, posting 15 assists in 45 games. He also made his Calder Cup Playoff debut, playing two games with two penalty minutes. In 170 career AHL games, Quick has recorded one goal and 34 points with 26 penalty minutes.
Quick has appeared in six career NHL games – all with the Tampa Bay Lightning during the 2008-09 season – posting one assist. A third-round draft pick (78th overall) by the Lightning during the 2006 draft, Quick originally signed a three-year, entry-level contract with Tampa Bay on June 2, 2008.
Quick has appeared in 20 career ECHL regular season games with the Everblades and Augusta Lynx, posting two goals and seven points with ten penalty minutes in those games. He also appeared in nine Kelly Cup Playoff games with the Elmira Jackals in 2009, posting one assist.
Before joining the Admirals during the 2007-08 season, Quick played in 21 games at the University of Michigan, where he notched two goals and four points with 12 penalty minutes.
