by Marc Ciampa / Edmonton Oilers

Oilers Vice Chairman Bob Nicholson spoke about Pat Quinn on Monday, who passed away on Sunday.

"On behalf of the Oilers, and especially myself and my wife Lorna, we'll never forget all the great summers we had together," Nicholson began. "(Pat) will always be one of my best friends. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Quinn family."

Oilers head coach Dallas Eakins and winger Jordan Eberle also gave their thoughts on the passing of Quinn.

“It’s a sad day with the passing of a great coach, Pat Quinn. A guy that I looked up to and has been somewhat of a mentor over the years. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family,” Eakins remarked.

Jordan Eberle won a Gold Medal with Quinn at the World Junior Hockey Championship and World Under-17s.

"Pat was a guy I have fond memories of," said Eberle. "I had him in the World Juniors in 2008 and the World Under-17. I remember being 17 years old and he was our coach and walking in scared to talk to him because of the presence that he was.

"The way he conducted himself he had a lot of respect for sure. It's tough to see him go. Condolences to his family and the organization here he was a big part of, too."
