Originally a Montreal Canadiens‘ 3rd round pick in the 2008 draft (#86 overall) right wing Steve Quailer(13) was involved in a mostly minor league that sent him to Los Angeles Kings, who are notorious for developing size up front.
At 6’4″ 209 lbs. he’s certainly a big frame and has been using it in his time with AHL affiliate Manchester Monarchs. In 19 games he’s posted 3 goals and 3 assists pushing him to modest yet new career highs for helpers and points.
He played for a season and a half with Hamilton Bulldogs.
In the final season of his 2-year entry level deal, he signed after he finished four years at Northeastern University, where he served as assistant captain.
Already 24-years old, he’s set to become a restricted free agent at the end of the current campaign, but should be retained for one more shot in the prospect system to see if he’ll turn the corner the way they think he might by picking him up.
He’ll be playing in his first forthcoming postseason games.
