Kukla's Korner Hockey

Costly Mistake

from the Buffalo News,

Kevin Quick merely needed to keep his head on straight and enjoy the ride, which wasn’t asking too much. He had been selected in the third round of the NHL draft. He had a scholarship to the University of Michigan. He was a freshman getting a regular shift on the second-ranked hockey team in the nation. Now?

The 19-year-old is home in Tonawanda, trying to put his career back together after getting kicked off the Michigan team for what coach Red Berenson called “a total violation of our team trust and rules.” Sources said the defenseman stole a credit card, used it as a personal piggy bank and spent thousands of dollars….

Tampa Bay selected Quick with the 78th pick overall in the 2006 draft. He signed a professional tryout contract with the Lightning’s AHL affiliate in Norfolk on Saturday. He’ll start his professional career at a fraction of what he could have pocketed in a couple years with far more experience and leverage.
