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.
