Quick will be playing in his first international hockey competition. He is the first University of Massachusetts alumni to make a U.S. Olympic hockey team in 86 years - and just the fourth in history. Thomas Pock of UMass played for Austria in the 2002 Salt Lake City Games.
In 2007, he became only the second goaltender in ECHL (East Coast Hockey League) history to record his first win, first shutout and score his first goal in the same game.
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.
