April 24, 2020
During the current and unforeseen cancelation of the 2019-20 season, the players in the NAHL saw their seasons cut prematurely short. In some cases, players saw their junior hockey careers come to an end as well. However, the NAHL got together a decided to highlight some of those players, who were born in 1999 and were in their final season of playing junior hockey.
As a result, we present a new series entitled: 50 players in 50 days
50 players in 50 days will select 50 players from each of the 26 NAHL teams this past season that were born in 1999, are currently uncommitted, and deserve some recognition during their time spent playing and developing in the NAHL. Over the course of the next 50 days, we will take time out to look at their accomplishments, review their season, and provide some background on their NAHL careers. Players will be initially highlighted in alphabetical order by team. Enjoy!
Quinn Green, Forward, Topeka Pilots
Topeka Pilots and Top Prospects forward Quinn Green, 21, just completed his second and final season playing in the NAHL with remarkable consistency.
The 5’11/170 lbs. native of West Chicago, Illinois, finished 3rd in team scoring during the 2019-20 season with 39 points, including a team-leading 20 goals, in 50 games played.
Green was also selected to and played in the 2020 NAHL Top Prospects Tournament for the South Division team, where he had a goal in two games.
Green’s numbers in 2019-20 followed up a 2018-19 rookie campaign that was also remarkably consistent and productive. Last year, Green also posted 39 points and also led the team in goals that season with 24.
In total, Green appeared in 108 career games over the course of two seasons with Topeka and recorded 44 goals and 34 assists for 78 points.
“Quinn Green is a natural goal scorer. Scoring 20+ goals in back-to-back seasons in the South Division is not easy to do. Quinn’s overall game significantly improved this season along with his consistent level of play,” said Pilots head coach Simon Watson.
Prior to playing in the NAHL, Green spent two seasons with the Chicago Fury.
