Over this season, there have been countless #NoQuit Moments, where the players have set milestones, reached new heights and overcome obstacles. Let’s go back and take a look at the #NoQuit Moments so far this season.
After coming off a record-breaking season in his last season as a Barber Pole, Noel signed a two-year AHL contract with the Toronto Marlies. Noel finished his OHL career with 298 games played, 65 goals, 157 assists for 222 points.
News: The Marlies have signed defenceman Noel Hoefenmayer and forward Jeremy McKenna to two-year AHL contracts.
After being out since mid-October after having shoulder surgery, Graeme Clarke made his return against Kingston on February 25th. Having only played in the first 9 games of the season, Graeme Clarke came back from injury and wasted no time getting back on the board, as it took him only three minutes for the sniper to score his first goal since coming back. Clarke finished the game with 1G and 2A in a 7-3 win over the Frontenacs.
Jack Quinn – Top Prospect
Before the pause, Jack Quinn locked in second in the OHL for goals with 52. Quinn reached the 50 goal mark on March 8th, which made him the second player in the OHL to do so this season. Quinn did not wait long to make it 51, as he would make it 2-0 before the ending of the opening period. Quinn is the 10th #CHL player in 20 yrs to score 50 in his #NHLDraft season following OHL talents Kaliyev, DeBrincat, Skinner, Tavares, Stamkos, Kane, plus Mantha, Crosby, Lupul. With 62 games played, he has 52 goals, 37 assists and 89 points. Quinn has proven he has what it takes to go high in the NHL Draft this summer.
Let’s take a look at the #NoQuit Moments in the history of the Ottawa 67’s.

Zultek’s timely goal gave the 67’s their second Memorial Cup championship in franchise history.
