Gregory, Quinn, Savard receive Order of Hockey

TORONTO -- Tom Renney was thrilled to honor Pat Quinn as one of three inductees into Canada's Order of Hockey Canada at Air Canada Centre on Tuesday.

Renney hopes one day soon he'll see Quinn enshrined into the Hockey Hall of Fame.

"I think he should be in the Hall of Fame," said Renney, president and CEO of Hockey Canada. "What is it, 50 years in the game? He gets us [Canada] a gold medal at the [2002] Olympic Games. He wins us a gold medal at the [2009] World Junior Championship. He puts all kinds of people in a safe place in the NHL and he makes big stars out of a number of others as a coach, never mind as an administrator. Maybe it's only a matter of time. I'd like to think that it will be sooner rather than later."

Quinn, who died Nov. 23, 2014 at 71, was named to the 2015 class of Distinguished Honorees of the Order of Hockey in Canada along with NHL senior vice-president of hockey operations and former Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Jim Gregory, and former Montreal Canadiens defenseman and NHL GM Serge Savard. Gregory and Savard also are members of the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Canadiens' Ruel was a teacher unlike any other

Monday, 02.09.2015 / 2:55 PM / News

Serge Touchette  - Special to NHL.com

He had one eye, but few hockey men could see as far, or as clearly, when it came to unearthing new talent.

The Montreal Canadiens lost a rare bird, an unsung hero, Monday when Claude Ruel died at the age of 76.

Ruel, who went blind in one eye when he was hit by a puck playing junior hockey in 1958, wore many hats in the Canadiens organization. He was a scout, a coach, a scout again, and a coach again. But most importantly, Ruel played a significant role in developing the best young players in the Canadiens organization in the 1970s and 1980s. He was a teacher of the highest order, the likes of which rarely has been seen.
