Hawks d-man Deron Quint has agreed a contract with the Bolzano Foxes in the italian serie A, he will join Ottawa Senators Forward Peter Schaefer, who has played 2 games for bolzano until now.
Quint propably will play his first game on 23/12 against HC Fassa
Defensively yes he was absolutely awful. Considering our other options at the position though? I'd take Quint and his pinching on every single play every day of the week and twice on Sunday over Kraphead or Poapst's playing average defense, no hitting, no offense rear ends. Klemm was serviceable but not a top 4 dman that the hawks wanted and used him as.
The current roster can be seen here, though the swede Daniel Fernholm has returned to Djurgården in the swedish elite league. Jamie Lundmark played for them earlier in the season without any major success.
deron quint has 1 goal and 9 assist in 8 games, he is a good dman, but not in his best form...he played solid games, defending his zone, don´t takes stupid penalties and he is a physical appearance on the ice
