Ugly End in Minnesota: Eleven games into the 1992-93 season, Quinn was suspended indefinitely by Minnesota on Nov. 12, 1992. The suspension came after a 19-year-old Twin Cities woman accused Quinn of raping her on the morning of Nov. 10, 1992. The woman went to police, and Quinn was expected to be formally charged with sexual assualt in Bloomington, Minn., on Nov. 17, 1992. Quinn had been arrested on Nov. 10, but not immediately charged. He spent a short time in jail before he was released on $30,000 bond. In posting bail, Quinn agreed that American officials could bring him back to the U.S. if he went home to Canada. The alleged sexual assault took place after Quinn had dined at a Mall of America restaurant with former Penguins teammates Mario Lemieux, Rick Tocchet and Bob Errey on the night before a game against Pittsburgh. Police said the four men went to Hooters after their dinner, where they met four women. The four players and four women then went back to the Penguins players' hotel, where Quinn was accused of raping the 19-year-old in another player's hotel room. Officially given a leave of absence by the North Stars at the time of his arrest, Quinn would never play for the North Stars again. Quinn insisted the sexual activity had been consensual, and a police investigation eventually agreed. One week after he was supposed to be charged, Quinn was vindicated when the Hennepin County attorney's office announced that it would not be filing charges after all. Even though the pending charges were dropped, the North Stars released Quinn on Nov. 24, 1992, for violating team curfew rules on the night of the alleged assault. The curfew rule dictated that all North Stars players be home or at their hotel by 11 p.m. on the night before a game. Quinn was relieved he would not have to endure a trial, but was disappointed that the North Stars had not stuck by him.
