Hall of Fame for Pat Burns

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier

Muchto the dis­may of many of the hockey play­ers that he coached, the late Pat Burns has, once again, been passed over for the NHL Hockey Hall of Fame. The coach of four NHL teams: the Mon­treal Cana­di­ens, the Maple Leafs, the Bru­ins and the Devils, Mr. Burns re­ceived the Jack Adams Tro­phy with three of those teams and won one Stan­ley Cup. In twelve sea­sons of coach­ing, his team missed the play­offs only once.

Those play­ers or coaches who did make this year’s cut to the NHL Hockey Hall of Fame, an­nounced last week, were Chris Che­lios, Scott Nie­der­mayer, Bren­dan Shana­han, Geral­dine Heaney and Fred Shero. The now has a 20 foot long pneu­matic boat. A ‘Capelli’, it was built in Italy, with the help of a lo­cal en­ter­prise, specif­i­cally to fit the needs of the po­lice. It made its first ap­pear­ance at the Fete du Lac des Na­tions last night and will cer­tainly be used dur­ing the Sher­brooke Canada Games.
