Quick Nets First NCAA Goal

NCAA Game Night: 1/11

Western Michigan 1 @ No.1 Michigan 6
D Kevin Quick, UM: 1-0-1, +2, 1 shot on goal

Quick’s goal, the first of his young collegiate career, came 36 seconds into the second period. The freshman took a pass at the right face-off circle and wristed the puck past WMU goaltender Riley Gill.

“Chad (Kolarik) passed me the puck and it was a great pass,” Quick said in a USCHO game recap. “I kind of froze. I wanted to pass, but I saw an opening so I shot it.”

There are conflicting reports as to how he scored. One Michigan site says it went over Gill’s glove, a WMU site says it went 5-hole, and the USCHO recap says it was under Gill’s stick. Any which way, it hit the back of the net – so congrats to Quick for his first collegiate goal.

No.1 Michigan improved to 19-2-0 on the year. Quick has a goal and an assist on the year (16 games).
