Redmond, Jones also honored
TORONTO -- Mickey Redmond and Terry Jones were rightfully honored at the induction ceremony. Both became honored members of the Hall of Fame earlier Monday at a luncheon.

Redmond received the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award for exemplary broadcasting and Jones received the Elmer Ferguson Memorial Award for bringing honor to journalism and to hockey.

Jones told the crowd at the luncheon that for years he has had the best gig in the country. He has worked in Edmonton for years.

Redmond has been a broadcaster ever since finishing his playing days in 1976. He worked for CBC and has been on Red Wings broadcasts for years.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
