Marcel Pronovost, a Hockey Hall of Fame member who won the Stanley Cup five times as a player and three times as a scout, died Sunday. He was 84 years old.
Pronovost had 345 points in 1,206 games in 21 seasons as a defenseman with the Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs.
He won the Cup for the first time before he played a regular-season game. The Red Wings recalled him from their minor-league affiliate in Omaha during the 1950 Stanley Cup Playoffs to fill in when Red Kelly was moved from defense to forward to replace an injured Gordie Howe. Pronovost had one point in nine games as the Red Wings beat the Maple Leafs in the semifinals and the New York Rangers in the Cup Final.
