Jeff Sauer built coaching success on communication

Monday, 12.01.2014 / 3:00 AM / U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame

David Kalan - NHL.com Staff Writer

In decades of coaching, Jeff Sauer had to learn many different ways to communicate with his players.

These days, he is using that ability with the American Hearing Impaired Hockey Association.

"The big thing with the [hearing-impaired] kids is just giving them a chance," Sauer said. "By giving them a chance, they really bond together well and they really stick up for each other. ... It's rejuvenated me from a coaching standpoint."

Sauer, who will be inducted into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame on Thursday, has worked with the American Hearing Impaired Hockey Association, of which he is now president, for more than four decades. His relationship with the organization started when, as Sauer tells it, a parent of a deaf player in the Stan Mikita Hockey School for the Hearing Impaired asked if their son and another player could participate in a camp Sauer was running when he coached at Colorado College. Four days later, Sauer was asked if he would continue working with the school, and he has been a part of the American Hearing Impaired Hockey Association ever since.

Gordie Howe had another minor stroke Saturday, but his son told the Detroit Free Press on Sunday that Mr. Hockey is comfortable.

"We were able to get rid of his back pain, so basically he's kind of resting comfortably," Mark Howe told George Sipple of the Free Press at the Detroit Red Wings-Vancouver Canucks game at Joe Louis Arena. "I'd say he probably has more good days than bad days. I mean, it's hard. He's not walking. Speech is extremely, extremely difficult.

"He knows what we're saying. He understands what's going on. When you're there with him, you can interact; it's still a nice thing."

Quote of the Day

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
