The Vancouver Canucks have announced plans to honour their former coach, Pat Quinn, during their St. Patrick’s Day game.

The March 17, 2015 game against the Philadelphia Flyers will be an evening-long celebration of the late Canucks player, coach and executive, according to the Canucks.

Quinn died November 23, 2014, at the age of 71.

“We are excited to honour and celebrate Pat Quinn on St. Patrick’s Day,” said Trevor Linden, Canucks President of Hockey Operations. “Pat was an inspiration to all of us. He had such a profound impact on the hockey landscape in this city and on the commitment this organization has made and continues to make in the community.”

Quinn was an original Canuck, playing in Vancouver during their first two seasons in the NHL. He came back to the Canucks organization in 1987 be the team’s president and general manager. One of the best coaches in the team’s history, Quinn guided the Canucks from 1991 to 1994, and again briefly in 1996.

The Canucks will reveal the schedule of events for the game at a later date.
