The former NHL coach will lead Canada at the Spengler Cup. He has accepted an invitation from Hockey Canada to coach the team during the annual holiday tournament in Davos, Switzerland. Quinn coached Team Canada to Olympic gold at the 2002 Salt Lake City Games.

He was also behind the bench for Canada's disappointing quarter-final exit last February at the Turin Olympics.

Canada's roster at the Spengler Cup is made up of Canadians playing in Europe and also some American Hockey League players.
