Quine shines in debut as the Bulls crush the Petes

KINGSTON, Ont. - Alan Quine made an immediate impact for his new club on Friday as the Belleville Bulls crushed the host Kingston Frontenacs 8-2 in Ontario Hockey League play.

The 19-year-old forward, who was acquired by Belleville from the Peterborough Petes on Jan. 10th., scored once and added four assists in debut.

"It's awesome to get the big win," said Quine. "Our line clicked and to pop a few in with my line and get a few breaks, it was nice."

Joseph Cramarossa also had a five-point outing for the Bulls (23-12-5) as he scored three times and set up two others, and Jordan Subban had a goal and three assists.

Daniil Zharkov scored once and chipped in two assists while Brendan Gaunce and Carter Sandlak each scored once to round out Belleville's offence.

Ryan Kujawinksi had a goal and an assist for the Frontenacs (20-18-2), who lost for the first time in three outings, and Sam Povorozniouk scored the other.

"Most of the guys are pretty upset," said Kingston's captain Cody Alcock. "We kind of let ourselves down. We needed to have four lines going."

Charlie Graham made 31 saves for the win as Mike Morrison took the loss after allowing five goals on 18 shots through 30 minutes of action. Colin Furlong stopped 9-of-12 shots in relief.

Belleville went 3 for 4 on the power play while Kingston scored twice on four chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.
