Playing career

Quinn was drafted 13th overall by the Calgary Flames in the 1983 NHL Entry Draft, while he was playing for the Belleville Bulls of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL). Quinn made his debut with Calgary halfway through the next season, scoring 52 points in 54 games. When he was called up he had been leading the OHL in scoring with 59 points. On November 12, 1986, Quinn was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins for Mike Bullard. It was in Pittsburgh where Quinn would have the most individual success, as he scored a career high 40 goals in 1987–88, and a career-high 94 points the next season. This was in large part because he got to play on the same team as phenom Mario Lemieux.

Quinn was traded to the Vancouver Canucks in 1990, and that started a period where Quinn played for 7 teams in 5 years. Quinn was alleged to have raped a 19-year-old woman in a hotel room in 1992. He was released by the Minnesota North Stars, the team he was playing for at the time. Quinn maintained that he and the woman had sex, but that it was consensual. The police did not press charges, and Quinn was back in the NHL the next season.[1]

Quinn retired in November 1996, after being released by the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Quinn currently resides in Florida with his wife and their 2 daughters and a son.

Golf

Quinn embarked on a career in golf after his career, and was one of the top players on the Celebrity Tour. In 2000, he caddied for John Daly at the U.S. Open. Quinn also caddies part-time for Ernie Els.[2][3]

At the end of April 2014, Quinn became caddie for golfer Joost Luiten from the Netherlands, ranked number 43 at the Official World Golf Ranking.

Quinn has competed at the American Century Celebrity Golf Classic, an annual competition to determine the best golfers among American sports and entertainment celebrities. He won the tournament in 1992, 2001, 2002, 2004 and 2012, and has a total of eighteen top-10 finishes.[4] The tournament, televised by NBC in July, is played at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course in Lake Tahoe, Nevada.[5]
