BC Hockey 100 Great Moments: Pat Quinn
Tuesday, December 11, 2018

Pat Quinn (Hamilton, ON) began his National Hockey League (NHL) career as a defenseman with the Toronto Maple Leafs.  He played nine (9) seasons in the NHL splitting time between the Maple Leafs, Vancouver Canucks and the Atlanta Flames.  His playing days however, were not what Pat Quinn would become known for. 

The year following his retirement as a player, Quinn took a job behind the bench for the Philadelphia Flyers, as an assistant coach.  He spent one (1) season as the Flyers assistant coach, starting the next season as the head coach of Philadelphia’s farm team.  He wouldn’t stay in the minors long, becoming the bench boss with the Flyers half way through the season after Bob MaCammon left the organization.  Quinn coached the Flyers, Los Angeles Kings, Vancouver Canucks, Toronto Maple Leafs and Edmonton Oilers over the course of his coaching career, which ended in 2010.  He also had the honour of coaching the 2002 Olympic team to gold in Salt Lake. 

Pat Quinn was inducted into the BC Hockey Hall of Fame in 2002 and into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2016.
