The San Jose Sharks are zeroing in on David Quinn as their next head coach, according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.

Pittsburgh Penguins assistant Mike Vellucci and Toronto Maple Leafs assistant Spencer Carbery were finalists for the role, Friedman reports.

Quinn last coached with the New York Rangers, who fired the 55-year-old after three seasons. During his three seasons in New York, Quinn had a 96-87-25 record with a young rebuilding team.

Quinn previously had stints with the Lake Erie Monsters, Boston Univerity and was also the head coach for Team USA at the 2022 Winter Olympics.
