NEW YORK – If David Quinn doesn’t like young players, Adam Fox and Ryan Lindgren sure didn’t get the memo.

This might be of some reassurance to some San Jose Sharks fans, who might blame top prospects William Eklund and Thomas Bordeleau’s presences in the AHL on Quinn.

Both Fox and Lindgren, then 22, blossomed on the blueline in their second NHL seasons in 2020-21 under Quinn. The new San Jose Sharks coach helmed the New York Rangers from 2018 to 2021.

“He emphasized on both sides of the puck,” Fox, the 2021 Norris Trophy winner, told San Jose Hockey Now. “I wasn’t necessarily a top pick for the team, but I’m still a young guy and he still gave me an opportunity.

“He played me and helped me grow as a player.”
