Ice Hockey Wiki

Larry Quinn is an American ice hockey executive, currently the managing partner of the Buffalo Sabres of the NHL. Quinn is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the franchise and as a partner also owns an undisclosed portion of the franchise.

Quinn first joined the team as President in the 1990s and was responsible for hiring current head coach Lindy Ruff and general manager Darcy Regier in 1997, after he had fired then-GM John Muckler and allowed coach Ted Nolan to leave after the end of his contract. Quinn was fired in 1998 as John Rigas took over the franchise.

After the Adelphia Communications scandal led to the forced divestiture of the franchise, Quinn associated himself with the prospective ownership group led by Tom Golisano, initially serving as a consultant. When investor Hormoz Mansouri left the ownership group, Quinn stepped in and was rewarded with a stake in the franchise and essentially earning his old job back as head of the franchise.

When not managing the hockey teams, Quinn's main job was as a real estate developer.
