Vancouver city council has unanimously approved the motion to rename a city block to Pat Quinn Way as a tribute to a hockey legend who passed away last November.

The motion was put forward by city staff and and Civic Asset Naming Committee.

The 700-block of Abbott St will now be renamed into “Pat Quinn Way.”

Quinn, a former Vancouver Canucks coach and co-owner of the Vancouver Giants, passed away at the age of 71 after a lengthy battle with illness.
