Video: Canucks honor Quinn with “O Danny Boy”


James O’Brien

The Vancouver Canucks paid tribute to former player and coach Pat Quinn prior to puck drop against the New Jersey Devils.

Quinn spent two seasons with the Canucks as a player and returned to Vancouver to coach for five seasons.

The Ontario native also served as President and General Manager during his time in Vancouver. Quinn led the Canucks to a Stanley Cup final appearance in 1994 and was inducted into the team’s Ring of Honor in April.

Canucks’ anthem singer Mark Donnelly sang a rendition of “O Danny Boy” as part of the tribute.

Quinn passed away on Sunday in Vancouver at the age of 71.
