Penguin Canada to publish biography of hockey coach Pat Quinn

Penguin Canada associate publisher Nick Garrison has acquired The Mighty Quinn, a biography of former NHL player and coach Pat Quinn by senior Sportsnet writer Dan Robson. The book is slated to appear in fall 2015 under Penguin Canada’s Viking imprint.

Quinn, who passed away last month, reached the Stanley Cup finals with the Philadelphia Flyers in 1980 and the Vancouver Canucks in 1994. He went on to coach Team Canada to gold several times, including the memorable 2002 Olympic Games in Salt Lake City.

Rick Broadhead of Rick Broadhead & Associates arranged the deal.
