Muhammad Ali, perhaps the greatest boxer of all time and an icon both inside and outside the sports arena, died Friday at 74.
The legendary Ali touched the lives of millions of people, and the NHL community was no exception, as they remembered and honored him on social media.
The Edmonton Oilers posted a picture of Ali, ever the showman, clowning with Wayne Gretzky.
The New Jersey Devils also paid tribute.
NHL players posted their thoughts and prayers in honor of "The Greatest."
