Quine was issued a qualifying offer from Calgary on Tuesday. Quine's playing time was inconsistent last season, suiting up in just 13 games and collecting five points in that span. The winger will receive a two-way offer worth $735,000 at both the NHL and AHL level for next season.
Quine has skated in only two of the Flames' six games since his March 10 recall from AHL Stockton. He's primarily at the NHL level for depth and security, with the ability to slot into the bottom six as necessary. Quine has 52 points in 41 AHL games this season, but only three goals and a helper in 11 appearances in the NHL. His usage when he does play is limited, as he's averaged only 8:54 per game.
Quine was promoted from AHL Stockton on Sunday. The 26-year-old was able to receive the call up after an outstanding time in the AHL, racking up 52 points in 41 games. In nine games with the parent club, Quine notched four points in nine games including a power-play tally this campaign. It's unclear whether or not Quine will suit up in Sunday's home contest against Vegas.
The Flames reassigned Quine to AHL Stockton on Friday. Quine's demotion suggests Andrew Mangiapane (undisclosed) may be closing in on a return to action. The 25-year-old forward will return to a prominent role with AHL Stockton, where he's racked up six goals and 19 points in 15 appearances this season.
Quine scored two goals, one on the power play, in Sunday's 7-2 win over the Blues. The tally with the man advantage was the final goal of the game, and the 25-year-old isn't suddenly a regular member of the Flames' power-play units. Still, Quine has taken full advantage of his limited ice time since being called up from AHL Stockton, scoring three goals and four points in five games, and he's playing well enough to stick around even after the Calgary roster gets a bit healthier.
