Daniel Peter Quinn (born June 1, 1965 in Ottawa, Ontario) is a retired professional ice hockey centre who played in the National Hockey League (NHL) for 14 seasons.

Quinn was drafted 13th overall by the Calgary Flames in the 1983 NHL Entry Draft, while he was playing for the Belleville Bulls of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL). Quinn made his debut with Calgary halfway through the next season, scoring 52 points in 54 games. When he was called up he had been leading the OHL in scoring with 59 points. Quinn was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins on November 12, 1986 for Mike Bullard. It was in Pittsburgh where Quinn would have the most individual success, as he scored a career high 40 goals in 1987–88, and a career-high 94 points the next season. This was in large part because he got to play on the same team as phenom Mario Lemieux.

Quinn was traded to the Vancouver Canucks in 1990, and that started a period where Quinn played for 7 teams in 5 years. Quinn was alleged to have raped a woman at a party in 1992. He was released by the Minnesota North Stars, the team he was playing for at the time. The police did not decide to press charges, and Quinn was back in the NHL the next season.
