HERSHEY – The 2009 Calder Cup Champion HERSHEY BEARS announced today that left wing Quintin Laing has been signed for the upcoming 2009-10 season. The announcement was made today by BEARS President/GM Doug Yingst.
Laing, 30, returns after first making his HERSHEY debut in 2006-07. The Rosetown, SK native has made two trips to the Calder Cup Finals in the last three seasons, and was a part of his first Cup winner this past Friday as the BEARS defeated the Manitoba Moose four games to two. Laing played one game for Washington this past season, suffering a torn spleen in the game on March 19 at Tampa Bay. He returned in May to help guide the BEARS to its 10th Calder Cup in franchise history. Laing was originally drafted by the Detroit Red Wings in the fourth round of the 1997 NHL Entry Draft.
