The word is, is that his brother didn't want to play NCAA, and Kevin was inbetween on it, so if an OHL team was willing to take both of their rights on, he'd play. Problem is you draft one, another team drafts the other to keep compition from having a top prospect, like Kevin has the potential to be. No team wants to use up a pick in the first few rounds knowing another team may draft his brother and thus making it a pointless pick, after about 10 rounds it would be worth the risk as once the 10th round comes into play getting a real good player is very rare. Enter the Sarnia Sting, who managed to put together consecutive picks in the 8th round which they used to draft both players, so it is completely expected that Kevin Quick will be coming to Sarnia for the 2007-2008 season. Especially considering the fact that they're a finalist bid for hosting the memorial cup, and the fact that they're expected to be among the top 2 or 3 teams in the league, as they've been building for the 2007-2008 season since their division winning season in 2003-2004.
