The Story Behind This Pat Quinn Photo

I absolutely love this photo. It's of a young Pat Quinn, at the time playing for the Vancouver Canucks and one of the toughest players in hockey.

He's being eyed up by an 8 year old boy. That boy, in many ways, represents all Canucks fans. They all look up to Pat Quinn.

It turns out the boy's name is Bob Whitty. Lora Grindley of the Vancouver Province caught up with Whitty, now a Lower Mainland fire fighter, for the story from the 8 year old boy's perspective.
