In “Stats on the Sound,” we take a look back at players on the Sound Tigers roster during the 2015-16 season and break down their numbers. In order to make the list the player had to:

a)    Play in at least 10 games with Bridgeport

b)   Have finished the season in the Islanders or Sound Tigers organization

Next, we look at a player that didn’t finish for the Sound Tigers, but finished up with the Islanders, center Alan Quine.

96 – The number of minutes in game time it took for a winner to be decided in Game 5 of the Atlantic Division Semifinals before Quine scored his first Stanley Cup Playoff goal. Quine had five points in 10 playoff games and played in just two NHL games before making his playoff debut.

3 – The number of overtime goals Quine scored this season between the NHL and AHL. Quine’s goal on April 22 to win it for the Islanders was not the first time he scored to win his team the game this year. Quine also had overtime winners on November 1 against the Utica Comets and March 19 against the Portland Pirates.

4:30 – The amount of time in hours it (approximately) takes to drive to Syracuse, N.Y. where the AHL All-Star Game was played. After Ryan Pulock was injured in a game on the Saturday before the All-Star Classic, Quine was told he would be replacing Pulock and made the long trek to Syracuse. Quine had two goals in the event.

11 – Quine had an 11-game point streak after returning from injury on January 20, helping the Sound Tigers earn points in all 11 games. His streak was the second-longest point streak of the season for an AHLer and marked his second straight year with a 10+ game point streak. He recorded four goals and nine assists during the month-long span.

1637 – The number of days it took for a Sound Tiger to record a hat trick away from Webster Bank Arena, with Justin DiBenedetto being the last to do it against the Albany Devils back on October 9, 2011. Quine’s first-ever hat trick back on April 2 in Wilkes-Barre was also the only natural hat trick for a Sound Tiger this year. Bridgeport had seven total this season.

7 – The number of points Quine had on the week ending April 3.  Not only did Quine have a hat trick on April 2, but also had a career-high three assists on March 29 against the Portland Pirates. He had points on seven of the Sound Tigers’ 11 goals that week.

136 – The number of points the Ottawa native has in his Bridgeport career, putting him in a tie for eighth all-time. Quine now has 50 goals (making him only the 10th Sound Tiger to score 50) and 86 assists (7th all-time) with the Sound Tigers.
