Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Deron Quint
Deron Quint was selected 30th overall in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft by the Winnipeg Jets. A graduate of the WHL's Seattle Thunderbirds, Quint's very first game, resulted is first NHL point. Later in the 1995-96 season Quint tied a NHL record set in 1931, scoring two goals in four seconds, which match the feat of Nels Stewart, of the Montreal Maroons. Quint and the Jets moved to Phoenix the following season when the team relocated south. While Quint was part of the early days in Phoenix, he wound up playing most of his games for Springfield, of the AHL. The 1997-98 season was a disappointing season for Quint, as injuries limited his effectiveness and knocked him out of the lineup on more than one occasion.

The following season he was finally able to play a full term at the NHL level. Even then, a concussion near the end of the season put him on the shelf for the team' s last seven games. The 1999-2000 team saw Quint being traded to the New Jersey Devils, where he played four games. Quint was the player to be named later in an off-season deal between the Devils and the expansion Columbus Blue Jackets. For Columbus he began the year with their AHL affiliate in Syracuse, but, before long, he was back in the NHL.

The Durham, New Hampshire native went on to play two seasons in the Columbus organization before returning to the Phoenix Coyotes prior to the 2002-03 season. After only one season in Phoenix, Quint was acquired by the Chicago Blackhawks in the summer of 2003. Quint played 51 games with the Hawks in the 2003-04 season and helped lead a rather young club. The following season he signed overseas with Blozano HC in Italy due to the NHL lockout. Quint remained in Europe over the 2005-06 season and competed with Kloten in Switzerland and the Berlin Polar Bears in Germany. He made his NHL return in 2006-07, after signing as a free agent in the summer of 2007 he skated in five games with the New York Islanders.

On the international stage, Quint represented the U.S. at the World Junior Championships (1994-1995) and the World Championships (2001).
