Sharks name David Quinn as next head coach

This morning, the San Jose Sharks gathered media at SAP Center to announce the 10th head coach in franchise history. General manager Mike Grier took the podium and announced that former New York Rangers head coach David Quinn will be the team’s coach moving forward. Quinn is expected to fill out his staff over the next few weeks.

Quinn, 55, is a former Boston University defender and captain, whose playing career was ultimately derailed by health complications, and despite being drafted 13th overall by the Minnesota North Stars in the 1984 NHL Entry Draft, he was never able to play at the NHL level.
