BOSTON (WHDH) - The Bruins are honoring a 16-year-old high school hockey player from Rehoboth who recently died in a crash.

The team shared a video of them hanging up a jersey with the name Quinn, for Dylan Quinn, who volenteered at several of the Bruins’ clinics over the years. The jersey also features the number 33, Quinn’s number for his high school team.

Also over the weekend, the Bristol-Plymouth Hawks took the ice for the first time since the loss of their teammate Quinn and honored him ahead of the sold-out match.

Quinn was killed in a rollover crash on Myricks Street in Sharon on January 15 around 7:30 a.m. He was a passenger in a Mazda pickup truck being operated by a 16-year-old male friend.

When first responders arrived on scene, they found the vehicle upside down in the middle of the road.  The driver was transported to Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. Quinn was rushed to Saint Luke’s Hospital in New Bedford, where he was pronounced deceased.

A preliminary investigation has revealed the two friends had just left a nearby Dunkin Donuts and were on their way back to Quinn’s friend’s home when the crash occurred. The vehicle was traveling south when it struck a telephone pole and a tree before rolling over and coming to rest back in the roadway. 

A GoFundMe page has been set up in support of Quinn’s family.
