Fox 100.3 Rapid City : Rush Article




(RAPID CITY, SD) – The Rapid City Rush announced today that rookie forward Quintin Lisoway has signed with the Rush for the 2018-19 ECHL season, marking the beginning of his professional hockey career.


Lisoway comes to the Rush following the conclusion of his Canadian college hockey career at the University of Manitoba.  The 5’10”, 180-pound forward spent the last two seasons with University of Manitoba, totaling 32 points to the tune of 19 goals and 13 assists in 53 games, including 11 goals in 28 games last season in his final college campaign.


“I’m very excited for the opportunity to play for the Rush.  I’m looking forward to playing more hockey, and the challenge of the professional level,” Lisoway said of his first professional signing.  “I like the way the organization is heading in my conversations with Coach Tetrault.  I have a ton of familiarity with the team already, having played with Shaquille Merasty in college, so that will help with my transition.  On the ice, I bring the ability to score in different ways.  I’m more of a scorer now, but in junior I developed defensively, and that led to leading in +/- my first year in college.  Defensive play is a big part of my game, so all in all, I play well 200 feet up and down the ice.”


“What stood out to me most about Quintin is his leadership ability.  He had a great junior career and put up great numbers in college, so it was a no-brainer to bring him on,” Rush Head Coach Daniel Tetrault said of Lisoway.  “Quintin is a defense-first player up front, so we’ll task him with shutting down the opposition’s forwards, but in his college career, he found a scoring touch, so we’ll put him in all situations.  I’m very excited to see what he brings to the team in Training Camp.”


A native of Neepawa, Manitoba, Lisoway previously played major-junior hockey with the QMJHL’s Acadie-Bathurst Titan, but spent the vast majority of his major-junior career with the WHL’s Brandon Wheat Kings, appearing in 171 games over the course of three seasons, compiling totals of 20 goals, 28 assists, and 48 points.
