Quote:
Coach Red Berenson did not give the specifics of why he dismissed the freshman defenseman from the program but said once he learned all of the details Thursday of what Quick did, it was the right thing to do.

"Obviously, it was serious enough that we had to let him go," Berenson said. "It was just a total violation of our team trust and our rules.

"He's a good kid, and it's been a long, long week for me having to make this decision, but it was the only thing to do."

Michigan players declined to comment about the dismissal. Quick could not be reached Friday for comment.

...

Berenson has suspended players in season before for academic or behavior reasons, but rarely has someone been immediately dismissed.

"I didn't know everything until (Thursday), and once I did, it was a quick decision," Berenson said.

Quick, a 3rd round pick in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, is considered one of the Lightning's brightest young prospects.

In an exciting game aired on CSTV, Michigan erased a 2-0 deficit against No.8 Notre Dame and earned a last minute win when Ottawa Senators third rounder (2007) Louie Caporusso banged in a loose puck from the side of the net with 20 seconds left. The goal came shortly after an offensive zone faceoff, which featured Kevin Quick on the right point. The Irish won the faceoff, but the Wolverine forecheck caused a turnover and an eventual goal.

Quick was on the ice for the Irish’s first goal, so he ended up even for the game. He had a few nice rushes and seems to be playing with a lot of confidence.

Michigan was swept 3-0 by Notre Dame last year.
