The American Hockey League announced Friday that Rochester Americans forward Jack Quinn has been voted the winner of the Dudley (Red) Garrett Memorial Award as the AHL’s outstanding rookie for the 2021-22 season.
The award was voted on by coaches, players and members of the media in each of the league’s 31 cities.
The 20-year-old was named to the AHL All-Rookie team on Wednesday along with his teammate JJ Peterka.
Quinn has compiled 25 goals and 34 assists for 59 points in just 44 games with Rochester this season. Quinn’s 1.34 points-per-game average ranks third in the league.
The Sabres selected Quinn during the first round (eighth overall) of the 2020 NHL Draft.
