The Wenatchee Wild are bringing back forward, Quinn Emerson for the 2021-22 season. Emerson returns to Wenatchee after playing for them during the 2019-20 season. He collected eight goals and eight assists for 16 points in 53 games. During the playoffs that year, he collected one goal in five games. Leigh Mendelson, Wenatchee’s Director of Scouting and Goalie Coach commented on Quinn returning to the Wild.
“We are very excited to have Quinn back with us this season. Quinn gives us versatility as a center or wing, he is a very reliable 2-way player, and we expect him to add to his offensive production this season. Quinn has impeccable character and competitiveness, we look forward to his leadership and experience to help our younger players transition to Junior hockey, while working to have his game to be ready to contribute next season at Bowling Green,” said Mendelson.
Due to the Wild going dormant for a year due to COVID-19 border restrictions, he played the 2020-21 season with the NAHL’s Lone Star Brahmas. With the Brahmas he picked up two goals and three assists for five points in 34 games. Head coach Chris Clark commented on Emerson, what he brought to the team in 2019-20 and his commitment to Bowling Green.
“We are very excited to have Q rejoining us here in Wenatchee for the 21-22 season. Wild fans will remember Quinn from the 19-20 season. Quinn plays with great pace and scored some big goals for us his first year in Wenatchee. He plays an honest 200 foot game and has great leadership qualities. We look forward to helping Quinn continue his development before he heads to Bowling Green in 22-23,” Clark said.
