18. jaanuaril 1958 astub Boston Bruins'i hokimängija Willie O’Ree mänguks Montreal Canadiens'i vastu jääle, saades esimeseks mustanahaliseks, kes on mänginud Rahvuslikus Hokiliigas (NHL).

O’Ree sündis 1935. aastal Kanadas New Brunswicki linnas Frederictonis ja oli ehitusinseneri poeg ühes Frederictoni ainsast kahest mustanahalisest perest. Ta alustas uisutamist kolmeaastaselt ja liitus lähedal asuva hokiliigaga alles viieaastaselt. Viie aasta jooksul koos vanema vennaga Frederictoni meeskondades mängides sai O’Ree tuntuks New Brunswicki parimate mängijatena. Pärast ühte hooaega Quebeci juunioride hokiliiga Quebeci Frontenacsis liitus ta Ontario hokiliidu juunioride “A” hokiliiga Kitchener Canucksiga, püstitades hooajal 1955-56 karjääri tippmargi 30 väravat. Sel aastal tabas löök mängu ajal O’Ree paremat silma, röövides temalt 95 protsenti selle silma nägemisest.

O'Ree suutis vigastust varjata ja jätkata oma hokikarjääri, liitudes 1956. aastal mainekas Quebeci hokiliiga Quebeci ässadega. Teisel hooajal Quebeciga kutsus NHL-i Boston Bruins 22-aastase O ' Ree vigastatud mängija asendamiseks. 18. jaanuaril 1958 mängis Bruins Quebeci Montreali foorumil kahekordse Stanley karika meistri Montreal Canadiensiga. O’Ree asus Bruins'i kolmanda joonega ründajana jääle, sest Bruins tõi 3: 0 võidu. Ta ei löönud väravaid ega registreerinud karistust ning ajalooline sündmus leidis aset väikeste kärarikkamiste keskel.

Vaid kahe mängu järel saadeti O’Ree ässadesse tagasi, kuigi mängis sel hooajal mitmeid mänge Ameerika Hokiliiga (AHL) Springfieldi indiaanlastega. Hooajaks 1959-60 liitus O’Ree professionaalse hokiliiga idaosa Kingston Frontenaciga, lüües 50 mänguga 21 väravat ja 25 korvisöötu. Hull-Ottawa Canadiensisse siirdudes viskas ta 16 mänguga 19 punkti. O’Ree liitus 1960. aasta lõpus uuesti Bruinsiga ning lõi 1. jaanuaril 1961 teises mängus Canadiensiga oma esimese NHL -i värava. O’Ree pidas sel hooajal Bruinsiga 43 mängu, lüües kokku neli väravat ja lisades 10 korvisöötu.

Bruins müüs järgmisel hooajal O'Ree lepingu Lääne -Hokiliiga (WHL) klubile Los Angeles Blades ning O'Ree veetis suurema osa ülejäänud karjäärist läänes, mängides 11 aastat Bladesi ja San Diego Gullsiga. ja võitis kaks korda WHL -i punktitiitli. Pärast ühte hooaega AHL -i New Haven Nighthawksis läks ta tagasi Californiasse. 1970. aastate lõpus tegi ta mängimisel kaheaastase pausi, naasis seejärel viimaseks hooajaks Vaikse ookeani hokiliiga San Diego Hawksiga aastatel 1978-79. Ta läks selle hooaja lõpus, 43 -aastaselt, pensionile pärast 19 hooaja ja 10 meeskonna professionaalset hokikarjääri.


Sisu

Nooruses mängis Fleury 1998. aastal Quebeci rahvusvahelisel Pee-Wee hokiturniiril koos College-Français Rive-Sud alaealise jäähokimeeskonnaga Montreali South Shore'ist. [3]

Fleury mängis juunioride jäähokit Quebeci suuremas juunioride hokiliigas Cape Breton Screaming Eaglesi eest, alustades aastatel 2000–01. Pärast tugevat kampaaniat aastatel 2002–2003, mis hõlmas koos Kanada meeskonnaga maailmameistrivõistluste hõbemedalit ja QMJHL-i teise meeskonna kõigi tähtede autasusid, valiti Pittsburghi Penguins 2003. aasta NHL-i draftis üldarvestuses esimeseks. Penguins omandas esimese üldvaliku Florida Panthersilt kaubanduses, mis saatis esimese ja 73. üldvaliku Penguinsile vastutasuks Mikael Samuelssoni ning kolmanda ja 55. valiku eest. [4] Ta on alles kolmas väravavaht, kes valiti NHL -i draftis üldarvestuses esimeseks, Michel Plasse ja Rick DiPietro järel. [5] Mängides Cape Bretoniga neli hooaega, loobus Fleury särk number 29 hiljem klubist oma neljandal NHL -i hooajal 25. jaanuaril 2008. [6]

Pittsburgh Penguins (2003–2017)

2003–04

Fleury tegi oma NHL-i debüüdi kohe aastatel 2003–2004, olles 18-aastane liiga noorim väravavaht (kolm aastat noorem kui teine ​​noorim, New Yorgi saarlaste Rick DiPietro). [7] Ta esines oma esimeses NHL-i mängus 10. oktoobril 2003 Los Angeles Kingsi vastu, jäädvustades muljetavaldava 46-realise mängu, mis hõlmas karistuslööki, kaotusega 3: 0. [8] Fleury saavutas oma esimese NHL -i võidu juba järgmisel stardil, 18. oktoobril, 31 tõrjega, kui Detroit Red Wings võitis 4: 3. [9] Tema esimene NHL -i sulgemine toimus 30. oktoobril, kui võitis Chicago Blackhawksi 1: 0. [9] Fleury jagas aega väravavahtide Jean-Sébastien Aubini ja Sébastien Caroniga [10] ning vastas varakult esimese valiku ootustele, teenides oktoobris kuu algaja auhinna 2: 2–2 rekordiga, 1,96 väravaga keskmine (GAA) ja .943 säästmisprotsent. [7] Hooaja edenedes hakkas tema jõudlus siiski vajuma, peamiselt Pittsburghi kehva kaitse tõttu. [9] [10] Meeskond loobus regulaarselt üle 30 löögi mängu kohta ja suutis harva rünnakuohuks muutuda. [11] Ta laenati detsembris 2004 juunioride maailmameistrivõistlusteks Kanada meeskonnale ja pärast teist järjestikust hõbemedalit naasmist saadeti ta 29. jaanuaril 2004. aastal tagasi QMJHL -i. [10] Rahaliste raskuste tõttu frantsiis, arvatakse, et Fleury 3 miljoni dollari suurune lepinguline boonus, mille ta oleks potentsiaalselt saanud, kui ta jääks ja täidaks mitu tulemuslikkuse eesmärki, oli tegur tema tagastamisel Bretoni neemele. [10] Tulutult pakkus Fleury, et jätab oma boonuse ilma, et jääda klubisse. [12] Fleury lõpetas QMJHL-i hooaja Cape Bretoniga esimese vooru väljalangemisel ja määrati seejärel Pittsburghi Ameerika Hokiliiga (AHL) sidusettevõttesse Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins ning osales kahes hooajajärgses mängus.

2005–06

Kuna NHL-i mängimine lükati töövaidluse tõttu edasi, jätkas Fleury aastatel 2004–2005 mängimist koos Wilkes-Barre/Scrantoniga, kus ta postitas 26–19–4 rekordi, 2,52 GAA ja 0,901 tõrjeprotsendi. Kui aastatel 2005–2006 NHL -i mäng uuesti algas, alustas Fleury hooaega veel kord alaealiste seas, kuid Pittsburgh kutsus ta kiiresti 10. oktoobril mängima Buffalo Sabresi vastu, et asendada vigastatud Jocelyn Thibault. [13] Ta jätkas mängimist Wilkes-Barre/Scrantoni ja Pittsburghi vahel kuni 28. novembrini, pärast seda jäi ta Pittsburghi juurde. Kuna Penguins jäi idakonverentsil viimaseks ja lubas liiga halvimad 316 väravat, [14] Fleury sai kirja 3,25 GAA ja 0,988 väravaprotsendi. Sbeastien Caroni ja Jocelyn Thibault'iga ajaga konkureeriv Fleury tõusis Penguinsi algväravavahiks.

2006–07

Vaatamata raputava kaitse taga mängimisele suutis Fleury meeskonna juhtkonnale oma tehnika ja esitusega muljet avaldada ning sõlmis hooajavälisel ajal kaheaastase lepingu pikendamise, mille väärtus oli 2,59 miljonit dollarit. [15] Menetluskampaanias paranes Fleury statistika märkimisväärselt. Mängides parema Penguinsi meeskonna taga, kus mängisid tõusvad superstaarid Sidney Crosby ja Evgeni Malkin, salvestas ta viis sulgemist ja 2,83 GAA. Ta teenis hooaja finaalis 2: 1 võiduga New York Rangersi üle oma 40. võidu, liitudes Tom Barrassoga ainsa Penguinsi väravavahina, kes on hooaja jooksul võitnud 40 võitu. [16] Samuti purustas ta enamiku mängude ja mängitud minutite jooksul Johan Hedbergi ühe hooaja frantsiisirekordi. Fleury tegi oma NHL -i playoffidebüüdi Ottawa Senatorsi, võimaliku Stanley karika finalisti, vastu esimeses ringis ja saavutas oma esimeses play -off -mängus teise võidu, salvestades Scotiabank Place'is 4: 3 võiduga 34 väravat. [17]

2007–08

Fleury alustas hooaega 2007–2008 aeglaselt, seejärel võitis neli mängu järjest, enne kui ta 6. detsembril Calgary Flamesi vastu kõrge pahkluu nihestuse sai. [18] Pärast lühikest ettevalmistustööd naasis ta 2. märtsil [19]. AHL koos Wilkes-Barre/Scrantoniga. Kõrvalejäetuna otsustas ta muuta oma väravavahi värvi erekollaseks, mis oli saanud tema allkirjaks, valgeks, et saada optiline eelis laskjate ees. Teda mõjutas ja esitas väljakutseid ka Ty Conklini väga tugev mäng, kes asus meeskonna algtööle pärast seda, kui ta Fleury äraolekul Wilkes-Barre/Scrantonist ülendati. Pärast vigastusest naasmist aitas Fleury Penguinsil Atlandi divisjoni võita, minnes 1.45 GAA -ga [19] 10: 2–1 ja jõudes 2008. aasta Stanley Cupi finaalturniirile Detroit Red Wingsi vastu. Finaalmängu viiendas mängus Detroitis peatas ta Penguinsi kolmekordse lisaajavõidu korral 58 löögist 55, et vältida kõrvaldamist. [20] Pingviinid kaotasid seeria kuue mänguga. Fleury katse katta nägematu lahtine litter selle peal istudes kuuendas mängus viis selleni, et ta tõukas litri võrku, kui omavärav osutus Henrik Zetterbergi arvele. Järgmise hooaja alguses ütles ta:

"Ma olen sellega valmis. Ma vandusin selle peale piisavalt. Ma ei saa enam midagi teha. Ma ei usu, et kaotasime finaali ühel eesmärgil, teate, mida ma mõtlen? Mul on halb, sest ma panin selle aga see oli parim seitsmest. Neil oli hea meeskond ja nad võitsid meid. " [21]

Fleury lõpetas play -off’i kolme sulgemisega - uueks play -off hooaja uueks meeskonna rekordiks - ja rekordiks 14–6. Tema .933 tõrjeprotsent oli ka play -off'i tipp. Hooajavälisel ajal sõlmis Fleury 3. juulil pingviinidega seitsmeaastase lepingu, milleks oli 35 miljonit USA dollarit. See sisaldas liikumiskeelu klauslit ja piiratud kaubanduskeelu klauslit, mis käivitati hooajal 2010–2011. [22]

2008–09

Fleury kogus aastatel 2008–2009 rekordi 35–18–7, et aidata Penguinsil idakonverentsil neljandale kohale jõuda, pääses 2009. aasta play-off’i Walesi printsi tiitlikaitsjana. Fleury oli esimeses voorus peamine tegur Penguinsi sisese konkurendi Philadelphia Flyersi vastu. Kodus peetud 2. mängus, kus kolmandiku lõpus oli 2: 1 kaotus, tegi Fleury Flyersi väravavõitja Jeff Carteri vastu võtmevarba, mis oli lõpuks määrava tähtsusega, sest Penguins viigistas mängu 3. lõpus ja võitis lisaajal. Pärast seda, kui Flyers võitis 3. mängu mugavalt, varastas Fleury taas 4. mängus Penguinsile mängu, peatades 43 lööki, et hoida hoogne Flyersi koosseis eemale ja tagada 3: 1 eduseis. Flyers võitis Pittsburghis 5. mängu, kuid Fleury päästis 6. mängu viimaseks perioodiks veel ühe esituse. Pärast esialgset 3 värava sisse laskmist ei lubanud Fleury teist, kuna Penguins kogunes 3: 0 kaotusseisust ja võitis 5: 3. Pingviinid läbisid teisel ringil Washingtoni pealinna vastu täispika distantsi. Seitsmes otsustavas mängus tegi Fleury võistluse Capitals superstaari Alexander Ovechkini vastu peamise murdekindla tõrje, aidates Penguinsil Washingtoni 6: 2 kaotada. [23]

Seejärel pühkisid Fleury ja Penguins konverentsi finaalis Carolina Hurricanesi, et naasta teist aastat järjest Stanley karikafinaali Detroit Red Wingsi vastu. Pärast viiendat mängu pärast 5 värava lubamist tõi Fleury kuues mängus veel ühe murrangulise tõrje, seekord jäi Dan Cleary vastu 1: 39 minutit, et säilitada 2: 1 eduseis ja aidata pingviinidel seitse mängu sundida. [24] Mängides Detroitis sarja otsustavat mängu, mängis Fleury lahutamatut rolli Penguins 2: 1 võidul, et võita frantsiisi kolmas Stanley Cup, tehes viimasel sekundil kaks kriitilist tõrjet. Pärast Henrik Zetterbergi esialgse löögi peatamist parempoolsest avaringist lõi tagasilöök Nicklas Lidströmi vasakul näo ringil lahti, sundides Fleuryt tegema sukeldumispeatuse, jäädes 1,5 sekundit võidu ja Stanley karika säilitamiseks. [25] [26]

2009–10

Fleury saavutas hooajal 2009–10 rekordi 37–21–6, sest Stanley karika tiitlikaitsja Pittsburgh jääks idakonverentsi neljandaks. Pärast kuues mängus Ottawa saatmist ärritas Penguins teise ringi kaheksandaks jäänud Montreal Canadiensit, lõpetades Stanley karika kordamise võimaluse. Fleury lõi playoffide ajal 2,78 väravat keskmise vastu.

2010–11

Kuna Sidney Crosby ja Evgeni Malkin jäid suure osa hooajast 2010–11 vigastustega kõrvale, loodeti Fleury ja Penguinsi kaitsele meeskonna play -off'i viimiseks. Fleury lõpetas tulemusega 36–20–5 ja Penguins saavutas idakonverentsi neljanda koha. Penguins alistas play -off'i esimeses ringis Tampa Bay Lightningi, kus alistati seitse mängu, hoolimata sellest, et nad võtsid varakult 3: 1 eduseisu. Fleury avaldas seerias .899 päästmisprotsendi.

2011–12

Varuväravavahid Brent Johnson ja Brad Thiessen nägid suure osa hooajast 2011–12 läbi, jättes Fleury ainsaks otstarbekaks väravavõimaluseks. Fleury pidas hooajal 67 mängu, alustades 23 järjestikust mängu ühel hetkel, mis viis tähtede vaheajani, ning lõpetas hooaja 42 võiduga, jäädes alla Nashville Predatorsi mängijale Pekka Rinnele.

Vaatamata muljetavaldavale põhihooaja kampaaniale oli Fleury play-off mängus vähem muljetavaldav, kuna Philadelphia Flyers kõrvaldas ta esimeses ringis ja tõi kuupalju edusamme kuue mänguga.

2012–13

Fleury naasis pärast sulgemishooaega kättemaksuga võrku, pannes lühendatud hooajal mõned karjääri parimad punktid. Ta lõpetas rekordiga 23–8, viies ta liigas neljandaks, samas kui tema tõrjeprotsent ja väravad keskmise vastu paigutasid ta jätkuvalt alustavate väravavahtide esikohta. Tema play -off -probleemid jätkusid, kuid pärast play -off -mängu sulgemist oli ta järgnevates startides vähem muljetavaldav, jättes varumees Tomáš Vokouni ülejäänud 2013. aasta play -off'i alustama. Hooaeg 2012–2013 paljutõotav Penguins lõppes järsult idakonverentsi finaalis Boston Bruinsile kaotusega 4: 0. Pärast hooaega kinnitasid aga Penguinsi ametnikud, et Fleury jäi meeskonna algväravavahiks.

2013–14

Fleury esinemine põhihooajal aastatel 2013–14 oli sarnane tema tulemusega aasta varem. Ta lõpetas rekordiga 39–18–5 ja salvestas tõrjeprotsendi 0,915 ning väravad keskmiselt 2,37. Vaatamata eelmise aasta play -off -mängude märgatavale paranemisele kaotas Penguins teises ringis New York Rangersile, hoolimata sellest, et võttis seeria alguses 3: 1 juhtima.

2014–15

5. novembril 2014 sõlmis Penguins Fleuryga nelja-aastase pikendamise, mille keskmine aastane väärtus on 5,75 miljonit dollarit. [27] 18. novembril 2014 teenis ta oma esimese suluseisu Montreal Canadiensi vastu, tehes 27 tõrjet hooaja neljanda sulgemise eest hooajal, lõppskooriga 4: 0. [28] 24. [29] 11.

2015–16

Hooajal 2015–16 võitles meeskond esimese poolaja, mille tulemusel vallandati peatreener Mike Johnston ja võeti tööle uus treener Mike Sullivan. Fleury mängis suurepärase hooaja teise poole, enne kui sai hooaja lõppeva põrutuse. Ta lõpetas hooaja muljetavaldava 35 võiduga 58 mängitud mängu kohta. Meeskond tegi viimase tõuke, kui väravavaht oli Matt Murray ja pääses play-off'i. Hoolimata sellest, et Penguins pääses 2016. aasta Stanley Cupi play-off'i, ei saanud Fleury põrutusjärgse sündroomi tõttu mängida enne idakonverentsi finaali 4. mängu Tampa Bay Lightningi vastu, kus ta alistas Murray eest kolmanda perioodi alguses. [30] Seejärel alustas Fleury viiendat mängu, mille pingviinid kaotasid lisaajal 4: 3. [31] Seejärel pandi Fleury istuma Murray kasuks. [32] Penguins jätkaks Stanley karika võitmist Murray väravas, alistades kuue mänguga San Jose Sharksi. [32]

2016–17

Hooajal 2016–17 mängis Fleury 38 mängu ja kogus 18 võitu. [33] Kui Matt Murray sai play-off'i esimese mängu soojenduse ajal vigastada Columbus Blue Jacketsiga, asus Fleury stardipositsioonile ja viis Penguins 3: 1 võiduni. [34] Fleury jätkas Penguinsi juhtimist sarjas ning tema 49 tõrjet 51 mängu korral 5. mängus aitasid pingviinidel võita seeria Blue Jacketsi vastu 4: 1. Kui Murray oli väljas, jätkas Fleury pingviinide teise ringi algust Washingtoni pealinnaga. Penguins alistas seitsme mänguga pealinnad, Fleury sulges nad 7. mängus ja pääses idakonverentsi finaalis edasi Ottawa Senatorsiga. Pärast kolmandas mängus saadud 5: 1 kaotust otsustas Penguins minna terve Murrayga, kes jäi meeskonna stardiks Stanley Cupi meistrivõistlustele, alistades kuues mängus Nashville Predatorsi. Võit oli Fleury karjääri kolmas Stanley karikas.

Vegas Golden Knights (2017 - praegune)

2017–18

21. juunil 2017, kui Matt Murray esile kerkis, loobus Fleury meelsasti oma kaubandus- ja liikumisklauslitest, mida Penguins 2017 NHL -i laiendusdraft jätab avalikuks, kus ta valiti hiljem Vegas Golden Knightsi poolt. [35] Samuti vahetas Pittsburgh 2020. aasta võistlusdraftis teise ringi, et Vegas saaks stiimuliks valida Fleury, et meeskond saaks oma ligi 6 miljoni dollari suurusest ülempiiri tabamusest vabastada. [36] Ta peatas Golden Knightsi esimeses NHL -i mängus 46 löögist 45, seega 2: 1 võit Dallase Starsi üle. [37] 15. oktoobril 2017 paigutati Fleury pikaajaliste vigastuste reservi (LTIR) pärast seda, kui ta võttis 13. oktoobril Detroiti Red Wingsist pärit Anthony Manthalt põlve pähe. [38] Ta aktiveeriti 10. detsembril LTIR -i kaudu , 2017, pärast 25 mängu puudumist. [39] Fleury valiti Las Vegase esindajaks 2018. aasta NHL-i tähtede mängu ajal. NHL-i tähtede nädalavahetusel võitis ta avaetapi Save Streak võistluse, kus ta päästis 14 järjestikust tulistamiskatset. [40] 12. märtsil 2018 teenis Fleury Philadelphia Flyersi vastu oma karjääri 400. võidu lõppskooriga 3–2. [41]

Fleury alustas Knightsi eest 2018. aasta Stanley Cupi playoffide esimeses voorus. 17. aprillil 2018 suutsid Golden Knights kindlustada Los Angeles Kingsi üle 4: 0 rekordi, et pühkida playoffide esimene voor. [42] 6. mail, pärast Fleury sulgemist, suutsid Kuldrüütlid edasi läänekonverentsi finaali, alistades oma play -off -sarja 6. mängus San Jose Sharks. [43] 20. [44] Playoffide ajal lõi Vegases asuv kasiino šokolaadiskulptuuri, mis näitas teda liblikat tegemas. [45] 2018.

Hooajavälisel ajal sõlmis Fleury Knightsiga kolmeaastase 21 miljoni dollari suuruse lepingu. [46]

2018–19

Fleury pidas hooaja pooleks 45 mängu ja juhtis NHL -i võitude (27) ja sulgemiste (6) juhtimisel. Oma tähemängu tõttu valiti ta taas teist aastat järjest NHL-i 2019. aasta tähemängus Kuldrüütleid esindama.

Las Vegase esimese vooru play-off-seeria 7. mängus San Jose Sharksi vastu loobusid Fleury ja Golden Knights 4 minutiga 4 väravast pärast seda, kui Golden Knightsile määrati vastuoluline 5-minutiline suur karistus, kuna Cody Eakin kontrollis Joe'i Pavelski. Kuldrüütlid kaotasid lõpuks mängu 7 ja seeria Sharksile.

Fleury võitis IIHF juunioride maailmameistrivõistlustel Kanada meeskonnaga kaks hõbemedalit. Ta esines esimest korda 2003. aastal Halifaxis. Kuigi Kanada alistas kuldmedalimängus Venemaa 3: 2, avaldas Fleury 1.57 GAA ning nimetati parimaks väravavahiks ja turniiri MVP -ks. [12]

Kuigi Fleury mängis turniirile eelneval järgmisel aastal NHL -is, laenas Pittsburghi Penguins ta Kanada meeskonnale. Fleury avaldas soovi jääda oma NHL-i klubi juurde, kuid Penguinsi juhtkond otsustas, et kõrgetasemeline turniir on tema arengule kasulik. [12] Ta juhatas Kanada meeskonna teist aastat järjest kuldmedalimängule, kuid tegi kuluka vea, mis kaotas tema meeskonna meistritiitli. Mängu viigistades 3: 3 ja vähem kui viis minutit oli jäänud reguleerida, jättis Fleury võrgu, et litrit mängida ja vältida Patrick O'Sullivani (USA meeskonnast) murdumisvõimalust. Fleury puhastamiskatse tabas aga tema enda kaitsjat Braydon Coburnit ja nirises võrku. [47] See osutus erinevuseks, sest ameeriklased pidasid 4: 3 võitu. [48]

30. detsembril 2009 nimetati Fleury Kanada meeskonnaks 2010. aasta Vancouveri taliolümpiamängudeks. [1] Ta turniiril siiski ei mänginud, kuna väravavahtide ülesanded jagunesid Martin Brodeuri ja Roberto Luongo vahel, kuid said siiski kuldmedali, kuna Kanada alistas finaalis USA 3: 2. [1]

Fleury sündis André ja France Fleury'le Sorel-Tracy's, Quebecis, väikelinnas Montreali lähedal. Tal on üks õde -vend, tema noorem õde Marylène. [49] [50] Kui ta esimest korda kutse sai, elas ta lühikest aega koos Mario Lemieux'ga, otsides püsivamat elukorraldust. [51] Praegu elab ta Lõuna -Highlandsis, Las Vegases, Nevada osariigis. [52]

Fleury abiellus pikaajalise tüdruksõbra Véronique Laroséega 22. juulil 2012. Nad olid 15 -aastaselt kohtunud ning neil on kaks tütart Estelle ja Scarlett [53] ning poeg James. [54]


Mitte üks, vaid kolm "Jackie Robinsonit"

Enne kui Cooper või Lloyd lepingu sõlmisid, jõudis New York Knicks kokkuleppele Harlem Globetrottersi Nathaniel “Sweetwater” Cliftoniga. Nii et kui NBA meeskonnad hooaja 1950-51 treeninglaagri katkestasid, olid Capitolsi, Celticsi ja Knicksi nimekirjas Aafrika-Ameerika mängijad. See kolmik moodustaks professionaalse korvpalli “kolmepea” Jackie Robinsoni.

Neist kolmest sarnanes Cliftoni taust kõige rohkem Robinsoni omaga. Ta ei olnud äsja vermitud kolledži sportlane, vaid 28 -aastane staažikas mängija, sama vana kui Robinson, kui ta esimest korda Dodgersiga mängis. Mõlemad olid pärit lõunapoolsest maapiirkonnast, kuid kolisid koos peredega suurlinnadesse, et veeta oma kujunemisaastaid. Mõlemad tegid ülikoolis mitmeid spordialasid ning Robinson ja Clifton olid mõlemad USA sõjaväe ja professionaalsete neegrite liigade veteranid.

Nagu selgus, oli Lloyd esimene mustanahaline mängija, kes nägi NBA mängus tegevust, viskas Halloweeni öömängus Rochester Royals'i vastu kuus punkti ja võttis pingilt kümme lauapalli. Nagu ennustus, mis tervitas Aafrika-Ameerika mängijate ettevalmistamist, ei mainitud Rochesteri demokraatide ja kroonika 78–70 Capitoli võidu kirjutises rassilist ajalugu. [4]

Cooper nägi järgmisel õhtul oma esimest mängu ja kaks päeva hiljem mängis Clifton oma esimese mängu. Jällegi ei mainitud ühestki mängude pressikontos rassist. Korvpall oli teinud vaikse ja sündmusteta ülemineku integratsioonile.


NHL-i uus ainult Kanada osakond annab lagunevale impeeriumile jala püsti

NHL -i hooaeg 2021, mis algab kolmapäeva õhtul, on väga ebatavalise ajakavaga. Eelmise hooaja hilinenud järelduste tõttu algab tänavune mäng kahe kuu hilinemisega ja sisaldab vaid 56 mängu klubi kohta, mis on tavapärasest 82. Vähendamaks reiside ja meeskondade vaheliste kontaktide hulka, eemaldas liiga kõik osakondadevahelised mängud. ajakava järgi mängida. Ja see muutis ümber ja nimetas neli osakonda ümber.

Tavaolukorras sorteeritakse NHL -i meeskonnad idast läände (enam -vähem) ning neljast divisjonist kolmes osalevad nii USA kui ka Kanada meeskonnad. Sel hooajal on aga debüüt Põhja divisjonis, kus asuvad liiga seitse Kanada klubi ja ainult need seitse Kanada klubi.

Seda NHL -i hooaega vaatame kõige põnevamalt

Colorado laviin ei karda ootusi

See ajutine meede on nii ilmne kui vajalik. Reisimine USA ja Kanada vahel on tavaliselt piiripunktis passi näitamine ja valitsuse ametnikule valetamine selle kohta, mis teie auto pagasiruumis on. Väga vähe muudatusi, välja arvatud raha ja liiklusmärgid. Kuid COVID-19 pandeemia ajal on mõlemad riigid haiguse leviku piiramiseks ajutiselt piiranud ebaolulisi piiriüleseid reise. („Piiri sulgemise” mõiste oli kanadalastele tundmatu alles 1813. aastal, kui Oliver Hazard Perry Put-in-Bay lahingus Anglo-Kanada laevastikku sõitis. Hea näha, et nad õpivad.)

Seetõttu oleks riikide vahelist reisimist hõlbustades peaaegu võimatu tavapärast spordiplaani pidada. Oleme juba näinud, et Põhja -Ameerika ülejäänud kolme suurima spordiliiga - Toronto Raptorsi ja Toronto Blue Jaysi - ainsad kaks Kanada meeskonda liiguvad lõunasse, et mängida oma kodumänge USA -s, kuni asjaolud muutuvad. Nii et kui tuleb NHL -i hooaeg, on mõistlik, et Kanada meeskonnad tuleb piirata.

Kuid selle hädaolukorra reformi taga hiilimine on spordi emamaale absoluutne kingitus: õigustatud löök Stanley Cupil.

Kanada ei ole Stanley karikat võitnud pärast Montreali Canadiensi triumfi 1993. aastal. See võit on siiani minevik, mis andis Jean Béliveau'le õiguse oma nimi uuesti karikale kanda. Siin on mõned asjad, mida veel polnud, kui Kanada meeskond viimati tiitli võitis: googeldage Spice Girls the Budweiser konnad kaheksa-aastasele NHL-i veteranile Jonas Brodinile ja Atlanta Thrashersile, kelle frantsiisiharta anti neli aastat pärast Canadiens'i tühistamist karikas ja kes kolis üheksa ja pool aastat tagasi Winnipegi.

Hoolimata sellest, et 26 hooaja jooksul oli korraga välja pandud koguni kaheksa meeskonda, on Kanada jätkuvalt napisõnaline. On olnud mõningaid lähedasi kõnesid - vancouverlased on pärast karikavõistluste südantlõhestamist kaks korda oma linna põlema pannud -, kuid pärast Canucksi agonistlikku kaotust Bostonile 2011. aastal pole ükski Kanada frantsiis isegi karikafinaali jõudnud.

Põhja divisjon aga esitab seitsmele Kanada meeskonnale aastakümnete parima võimaluse. 2021. aasta NHL -i play -off’is osaleb neli meeskonda igast divisjonist ning vahepealne mäng jätkub ka järgneva hooaja kahe esimese vooru jooksul. See garanteerib, et Kanada meeskond jõuab vähemalt liiga poolfinaali ja et ükski Kanada meeskond ei mängi enne seda Ameerika koondist.

See on oluline uudis, sest vaatamata sellele, et meeskondi on vähem, on Kanada divisjonil playoffikohti sama palju kui igal Ameerika vennal. Ja mis veelgi olulisem, see on oluline, sest need Kanada meeskonnad on koerte jama.

Põhja divisjoni klassiks on Toronto Maple Leafs, kes on kas seaduslikult hea meeskond või meeskond, keda kõik peavad heaks, sest neil on kaks ja pool silmapaistvat ründeliini ja GM, kes saab piisavalt head ajakirjandust, millest kõik on nõus mööda vaatama nende kohutav puudumine kaitsesügavuses ja üha raputavam väravavaht. Isegi kõige heategevuslikum vaade Leafsi kohta paljastab meeskonna, kes pole Ameerika koondistega segunedes oma divisjonis kõrgemal kolmandal kohal ega võitnud play-off vooru enne 2004. – 2005.

Leafs on igal viimasel neljal hooajal pääsenud play -off'i ja läinud esimeses ringis distantsile, kuid otsustavas mängus alistunud. Neil võiks olla maine playoffides lämbuda, kuid ausalt öeldes on see vaevalt isegi lämbumas, kui see nii vara juhtub.

Vahepeal on Calgary Flames Maples Leafsist erinev vaid geograafia, ühtlaste värvide ja asjaolu poolest, et Flames on oma erakordse kõrge skooriga ründajate grupi pärast sulgemist muutnud üheks play-off-seeria võiduks, mitte nulliks. Vaid kaks aastat tagasi olid Flames läänekonverentsi röstsaiad, enne kui nad esimeses ringis ei näidanud alaväärtusliku Colorado Avalanche'i vastu. Sellest ajast alates on nad heitnud kaitsesügavust nagu sulav pardipoeg, jättes talismanistliku kaitsja Mark Giordano oma 37-aastase hooaja saabudes rohkem esile kui kunagi varem.

Edmonton Oilers pääses igal oma esimesel 13 NHL -i hooajal play -off'i, mis võib olla NHLi laienemise ajastu parim talentide kogu: Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier, Paul Coffey, Jari Kurri, Glenn Anderson, Grant Fuhr jms . Paari aastakümne pärast võitis Oilers ajavahemikul 2010–2015 nelikveo eelnõu ja nägi välja nagu oleks tõusmas. Alates 2010. aastast on Oilers koostanud ja välja töötanud kolm tulevast Hart Trophy võitjat, sealhulgas Connor McDavid, üksmeelselt parim hokimängija elus. Kuid viimase 10 hooaja jooksul on nad läbinud kaheksa treenerit, lõpetanud oma divisjoni viimasel kohal neli korda ja jõudnud üks kord play -off'i. Kaks korda, kui arvestada nende eelmisel hooajal Chicagost väljapääsu Chicagosse. Sellele Chicago meeskonnale kaotamine on piinlikum kui play -offist ilma jäämine, seega on see arusaadav, kui te ei soovi seda arvestada.

Isegi piinlikum kui sedaon aga tõsiasi, et Oilers ei ole suutnud ehitada isegi keskpärast meeskonda kahe maailmatasemel staari-McDavidi ja Leon Draisaitli-ümber. Ja mõne aasta pärast räägime ilmselt sama ka Canucksi kohta, kelle neljandale reale on investeeritud Elias Pettersson, Quinn Hughes ja liiga palju raha. Erakordne väravavaht Jacob Markstromilt viis Vancouveri eelmisel hooajal play -off'i, nii et loomulikult lasi meeskond Markstromil sel sügisel kõndida ja andis ohjad kogenematule Thatcher Demkole ja üsna tõenäoliselt küpsetatud Braden Holtbyle.

Eelmisel hooajal oli Montreal nr. 12 seemet idas ja pääses play -offi, hävitades Penguinsi meeskonna, kes tundus, et see oleks pigem puhastustules olnud kui Toronto mull. Sellest edust innustunult vaatas Habs GM Marc Bergevin oma nimekirja - kuhu kuulusid paar väga head kaitsjat ja ründajagrupp, kes on täis kutte, kes on… hästi, ma arvan? - ja otsustas investeerida varuväravavahti Jake Allenisse ja kontrolljoonele ääremängija Josh Anderson, kelle vigastusi lühendanud neljapunktiline kampaania aastatel 2019-20 teenis ilmselt seitsmeaastase lepingu, mille väärtus on 5,5 miljonit dollarit aastas.

Winnipegi Jets oli eelmisel hooajal kohutav, kuid pääses play -off'i siiski tänu Connor Hellebuycki Vezina Trophy võitnud väravavahile. Mida vähem räägitakse ülejäänud meeskonnast, seda parem.

Ja Ottawa Senators on üks hokimaid meeskondi kogu hokis, olles viimase kolme hooaja jooksul jõudnud kogu liiga edetabeli kahe madalaima kohani. See saamatus on võimaldanud neil draftist läbi viia põnevaid noori mängijaid, nagu kaitsja Thomas Chabot, ääremängija Brady Tkachuk ja elektriline saksa uustulnuk Tim Stuetzle. But owner Eugene Melnyk operates the team in such a way that combines the implacable bargain basement hopelessness of the Pittsburgh Pirates with the embarrassing, meddling ownership of the New York Knicks.

The Worst Sports Franchise Owner in North America Is in Ottawa

Last season, these seven teams finished 12th, 14th, 15th, 19th, 20th, 24th, and 30th in the league in points percentage. And now they’re in their own division and are guaranteed four playoff berths. Meanwhile, realignment dumped the poor Buffalo Sabres in the East division, which now features four of the Eastern Conference’s top five teams from last season. The Sabres are going to get absolutely keelhauled in that division, but if they rowed across the Niagara River under cover of darkness and showed up in Ontario eating all-dressed potato chips and chucking the letter U around willy-nilly, they’d be a near-lock for the playoffs.

Maybe that’s a fluke of geography, or maybe it’s a symptom of broader Canadian hockey malaise. An astute Canadian observer—hell, anyone with two neurons to rub together under their toque—might point out that player distribution in the NHL is more or less random, and that the best player on most American-based teams carries a Tragically Hip LP in lieu of a passport. And that’s an important point.

But the best players on the Flames, Leafs, and Jets are American. And the Canucks had three Americans (J.T. Miller, Brock Boeser, and Hughes, a defenseman) produce more points per game than their highest-scoring Canadian player last season. The talent transfer goes both ways.

That’s because Canadian dominance of the country’s national sport is waning. Last week, Team USA won the IIHF U20 championship by beating Canada 2-0 in the gold medal game. That gives the U.S. four junior titles to Canada’s three in the past 11 years, with three of those victories coming at Canada’s expense in the final.

In best-on-best men’s Olympic play in the past decade, Canada crows over its two gold medals. But in that time, the U.S. has beaten Canada once, lost once in regulation, and lost once far enough into overtime that the game would’ve gone to a shootout in the NHL. The two teams had an even goal differential in those games. And in women’s hockey, the ice is tilted even further—the thrilling, razor’s edge Olympic rivalry between the U.S. and Canada in the 2010s obscures the extent to which Team USA has dominated international competition in recent years. Since 2015, the United States has won every single best-on-best competition it’s entered. Between the World Championships, Olympics, and Four Nations Cup: nine entries, nine gold medals.

We haven’t been able to see what the best American players can do at the senior international level, however, thanks in large part to the NHL’s interference. The NHL skipped the 2018 Olympics, and because of an unusual eight-team format in the 2016 World Cup of Hockey, it relegated all 23-and-under players from North America to a tegelikult junior team to make up the numbers. Team North America, with its striking black-and-orange color scheme and no-holds-barred firewagon style of play, was the darling of the tournament and will go down in hockey history as a universally beloved curiosity. But it also featured only one player—McDavid—who would’ve cracked Canada’s senior roster.

Meanwhile, Team North America featured numerous Americans—Matthews, Jack Eichel, Johnny Gaudreau, Dylan Larkin, Seth Jones, Brandon Saad, and Shayne Gostisbehere (he was good back then)—who would’ve made a Team USA roster that ended up being heavy on old dudes and third liners. To this day, none of those TNA players have suited up for Team USA at a best-on-best international tournament. Nor have Hellebuyck or Hughes.

Amateur Edit

As a youth, Pacioretty played in the 2002 Quebec International Pee-Wee Hockey Tournament with the New York Rangers minor ice hockey team. [2]

Pacioretty played high school hockey at New Canaan High School in which he led the state in points during his freshman year, and then moved on to The Taft School in Watertown, Connecticut. Pacioretty then played junior hockey for the Sioux City Musketeers of the United States Hockey League (USHL) for one season in 2006–07. Following the campaign, Pacioretty was selected in the first round, 22nd overall by the Montreal Canadiens during the 2007 NHL Entry Draft the pick had been acquired by the Canadiens from a trade with the San Jose Sharks. He spent the 2007–08 season with the University of Michigan, recording 15 goals and 38 points in 36 games. [ tsiteerimine vajalik ]

On July 17, 2008, Pacioretty signed a three-year, entry level contract with the Canadiens. [3]

Professional Edit

Montreal Canadiens Edit

Pacioretty made his NHL debut with the Canadiens on January 2, 2009, scoring his first NHL goal on his first NHL shot in a 4–1 loss against the New Jersey Devils. [4] Upon his debut, he also became the first player in Montreal's lengthy franchise history to wear jersey number 67. After starting the 2010–11 season playing for the Hamilton Bulldogs of the American Hockey League (AHL), the Canadiens' top minor league affiliate, Pacioretty was recalled for the second time to the NHL on December 12, 2010. [5]

On March 8, 2011, Pacioretty suffered an injury following a hit by Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chára. [6] The force and location of the hit resulted in Pacioretty colliding with the stanchion at the end of the bench. He was taken off the ice on a stretcher after lying (semi-)motionless on the ice for several minutes. [7] The extent of the injury was revealed the next day to be a fracture to the 4th cervical vertebra (C4) and a severe concussion. One Bruin, Mark Recchi, questioned the severity of the concussion during an interview stating that Pacioretty was at a movie theater four days after the incident. [8] For delivering the hit, Chára received a five-minute major penalty and a game misconduct, and after reviewing videotape of the play the NHL decided no further punishment was warranted. [9] However, a criminal investigation was announced by the Montreal Police Service. Additionally, Air Canada threatened to remove its League sponsorship if the NHL did not take any action to prevent further violence on ice. [10] Pacioretty recovered in time to start the 2011–12 season with the Canadiens. [11]

For Pacioretty's part, he could not remember the incident, but after seeing the tape said that he was "disgusted" that there was no fine or suspension. [12] About two months later, he said that he thought Chára regretted his actions and that he forgave him. [13]

Returning to action during the 2011–12 season, Pacioretty would end the year as the team's points leader, finishing with a career-high 33 goals and 32 assists in 79 games, [14] also winning the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy for "perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey." [15] He recorded his first career hat-trick on February 9, 2012, against the New York Islanders. [16]

On August 12, 2012, Pacioretty signed a six-year, $27 million contract extension with the Canadiens. [17] In September 2012, as a result of the impending labor lockout, he signed a contract to play overseas with Swiss National League A team HC Ambrì-Piotta. [18]

On February 6, 2014, Pacioretty became the first Canadien to have two penalty shots awarded in the same game, against the Vancouver Canucks and goaltender Roberto Luongo, [19] also becoming just the second player in NHL history to be awarded two penalty shots in the same period. [20] These were his second and third NHL career penalty shots, the first occurring earlier in the season on October 12, 2013, coincidentally also against the Canucks and Luongo. [21] Pacioretty missed all three penalty shots, [22] but nonetheless still scored a hat trick in the February 6 game. [ tsiteerimine vajalik ]

On September 15, 2014, Pacioretty was named an alternate captain of the Canadiens along with P. K. Subban, Tomáš Plekanec and Andrei Markov. [23]

On September 18, 2015, Pacioretty was voted by the team to become the 29th captain in Canadiens history after going without a captain in the 2014-15 season with the departure of Brian Gionta. [24]

The 2017–18 season was disappointing for the Canadiens, who finished 28th overall in the NHL standings. After four-straight 60+ point seasons, Pacioretty recorded only 37 total points over the season. [25] On March 2, 2018, Pacioretty left a game against the New York Islanders due to an injury, [26] and a few days later it was announced that Pacioretty suffered a knee injury and was set to be out for four to six weeks. [27]

The summer prior to his contract ending, there was speculation the Canadiens were intending to trade Pacioretty. There was a trade in place to send Pacioretty to the Los Angeles Kings during the 2018 NHL Entry Draft, but Pacioretty denied it from happening. Pacioretty subsequently switches agents. [28] Pacioretty confirmed in late August that he hadn't engaged in extensions talks with the club, signaling that the final year of his contract could also be the final year of his tenure with the Canadiens. [29]

Vegas Golden Knights Edit

On September 10, 2018, Pacioretty was traded to the Vegas Golden Knights in exchange for Tomáš Tatar, Nick Suzuki, and a 2019 second round draft pick. [30] He subsequently signed a four-year, $28 million contract extension with the Golden Knights. [31]

Pacioretty made his return to Montreal on November 10, 2018. Prior to the game, the Canadiens aired a video tribute for him, while he received a standing ovation from the fans. Pacioretty recorded nine shots in a 5–4 loss. [32] He would finish the season with 22 goals and 18 assists, and add another five goals and six assists during the Golden Knights' seven-game opening round loss to the San Jose Sharks in the 2019 Stanley Cup playoffs.

Pacioretty is the brother-in-law of former NHL player Maxim Afinogenov Pacioretty married Afinogenov's sister, Katia, in July 2011. [33] The couple have four sons and one daughter. [34] [35]

Pacioretty's paternal grandmother, Theresa Pacioretty (née Savoie) is a French-Canadian from Montreal. [36] [37] Pacioretty's mother is of Mexican origin. Having grown up in Mexico, she was not familiar with ice skating but given Pacioretty's very high energy as a child, took him to a rink to expend energy. [38]

In March 2016, McDonald's introduced the "Max 67" burger which is only available in its Quebec restaurants. [39]


The Toronto Maple Leafs

Toronto is the only other current team that has been around since the founding of the NHL. They began their existence as the temporary “team to be named later” noted above. Even though they drew many players from the NHA Toronto Blueshirts, they do not claim any Blueshirts history as their own. After their first season (1917-18), they were formally named the Toronto Arenas. The Arenas withdrew from the NHL late next season (1918-19), were renamed the Tecumsehs on December 7, 1919 and were sold to a new ownership group, who renamed them the Toronto St. Patricks a week later. Late in the 1926-27 season, the team was sold again–this time to Conn Smythe, who changed the name of the team to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

“The Maple Leaf to us, was the badge of courage, the badge that meant home. It was the badge that reminded us all of our exploits and the different difficulties we got into and the different accomplishments we made. It was a badge that meant more to us than any other badge that we could think of… so we chose it… hoping that the possession of this badge would mean something to the team that wore it and when they skated out on the ice with this badge on their chest… they would wear it with honour and pride and courage, the way it had been worn by the soldiers of the first Great War in the Canadian Army.” — Conn Smythe

What can be expected after treatment for adult non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL)?

Regular appointments with the patient’s doctor are necessary following any treatment for cancer. It is important to monitor how the patient feels and to do physical exams. Also, providers need to perform laboratory tests or imaging tests to look for signs of cancer or side effects from treatment.

For many people with NHL, treatment successfully removes the cancer. For others, the lymphoma may never completely disappear. Ongoing treatments will be needed as long as possible to keep the disease under control.

NHL Poised to Bring Stanley Cup Final to ESPN While NBC Seeks Rights Renewal

Gary Bettman’s plan to deal in a second network for a piece of the NHL’s media rights package is about to come to fruition, as the league is closing in on a formal agreement to bring ESPN back into the fold after a 17-year absence.

Sources on Tuesday said ESPN is on the verge of inking a seven-year contract with the NHL that will see that Disney cable net earn the right to televise as many as four Stanley Cup Final matchups between 2022 and 2028. While terms of the agreement—which has yet to be finalized—remain murky, it is believed that ESPN will pay somewhere in the neighborhood of $2 billion to $2.25 billion for the package.

ESPN and the NHL declined to comment on the negotiations.

Word of the ESPN-NHL negotiations began circulating last year, and it was predicted that Disney was likely to prevail in a bidding war with Fox. Now that Disney is getting closer to hammering out its Monday Night Football renewal, much of the guesswork on budgeting for an NHL splurge has been eliminated. Re-upping with the NFL for 10 years is expected to cost Disney some $25 billion over the life of the deal.

In addition to the linear TV rights, the new NHL deal will allow for the streaming of live games on ESPN+. The streaming service at last count had signed on 12.1 million subscribers, and its reach will be amplified this week when it is integrated with the legacy Hulu platform.

The growth of ESPN+ is a top priority in Bristol, which is looking to boost its streaming base to 30 million subs as the impact of the legacy cable bundle diminishes. “We won’t contemplate rights deals going forward that don’t envision ESPN+ being a major player in the use of those rights,” Disney CEO Bob Chapek told investors last week during the virtual Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecommunications Conference.

A formal announcement could arrive before the end of the week. If recent history is any guide, at least some ESPN staffers will have to work to regain their credibility in the eyes of hockey fans. First Take’s Max Kellerman last summer let fly with monologue about the relative popularity of the sport, saying: “I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, but in the United States of America, no one really cares about hockey. … It’s not one of the four major team sports.”

ESPN’s Linda Cohn, a diehard New York Rangers fan, gave Kellerman a piece of her mind via Twitter after his rant went viral. When word of the ESPN-NHL talks began circulating earlier this evening, hockey enthusiasts on the social-media platform were unanimous: Give Cohn a piece of the action the moment the rights transfer to Disney.

Meanwhile, legacy rights holder NBC Sports is working toward hashing out a limited renewal with the league. Back in 2011, NBC and the NHL came to terms on a 10-year, $2 billion deal that saw NBC retain exclusivity over both the broadcast and cable rights.

NBC’s 21st century stewardship of the NHL preceded its acquisition by Comcast. After the disruption of the 2004-05 lockout, NBC outmaneuvered ABC for the NHL broadcast package, while the Comcast-owned Outdoor Life Network, or OLN, grabbed the cable rights in a three-year, $208 million deal after ESPN passed up on the chance at forging ahead with the league.

Comcast’s purchase of NBCUniversal in 2011 simplified the NHL’s media rights arrangements, bringing the two components together under one roof. While NBCU would have liked to retain its exclusivity, the sheer metric tonnage of programming hours that haven’t been snatched up by ESPN will still go a long way toward populating the evolving linear channel USA Network and the new over-the-top service, Peacock.

The streaming platform is expected to play a far more significant role in NBCU’s sports programming in the coming years, especially now that Comcast has announced it will shutter NBCSN by the end of this year.


NHL is integrated - HISTORY

The first blacks in major pro sports:

Baseball: Jackie Robinson broke Major League Baseball's color barrier 55 years ago, but he wasn't the first black to play in the majors. In 1884, the Toledo Blue Stockings of the American Association, then a major league, had two black

Jackie Robinson won the NL MVP in 1949.
players -- catcher Moses Fleetwood Walker and his brother, Welday, an outfielder. Although Welday appeared in just five games, Moses shared catching duties, playing in 42 games and batting .263. Both players were gone the next year and no black appeared in organized baseball again until 1946, when Robinson signed with the Brooklyn Dodgers and played for their Montreal farm team. A year later, he moved into the majors with the Dodgers.

Football: Charles Follis played in 1904 for a pro team known as the Shelby Blues and Fritz Pollard played in 1920 for the Akron Pros. In the modern era, well-known pro teams didn't have black players until 1946. Kenny Washington and Woody Strode played for the Los Angeles Rams that year, and Marion Motley and Bill Willis played for the Cleveland Browns.

Basketball: The first black player drafted by an NBA team was Chuck Cooper, picked in the second round of the 1950 draft by the Boston Celtics. In the eighth round of the draft, Washington chose Earl Lloyd of West Virginia State. At about the same time, the New York Knicks signed Nat "Sweetwater" Clifton from the Harlem Globetrotters. Lloyd made his debut on Oct. 31, 1950, becoming the first black to play in an NBA game. Cooper made his debut a day later. Clifton, the first to sign a contract, played his first game on Nov. 4, 1950.

Hockey: Willie O'Ree broke hockey's color line in January 1958 with the Boston Bruins. He played two games that season and was scoreless. In 1960-61, he played 43 games for the Bruins, scored four goals and 10 assists. His first NHL goal came on Jan. 1, 1961, the game-winner in a 3-2 victory over Montreal. It wasn't until about 15 years after O'Ree joined the Bruins that the second black, Mike Marson, entered the league, with Washington.


NHL is integrated - HISTORY

On June 12, 1939, Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis, commissioner of Major League Baseball, announced, "I now declare the National Baseball Museum and the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York - home of baseball — open!" Fifteen thousand baseball fans applauded furiously and jostled each other to be among the first to step through the doors of the newly-opened baseball shrine.

Such a momentous occasion prompted a thought amongst hockey people: why shouldn't we have a similar hall of fame for our sport. The idea resonated, with former hockey great 'Cyclone' Taylor, who was one of the more vocal proponents for such an institution. The first references to a "mythical hockey hall of fame" were published in December 1940 by the Montreal Gazette.

On April 17, 1941, the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association (CAHA), accepting a motion made by Captain James T. Sutherland, appointed a three-man committee to study the origins of the game of hockey.

Sutherland, residing in Kingston, Ontario, had played hockey with the Athletic Club of Kingston in the first officially recognized hockey league. In 1910, after forming the Kingston Frontenacs, a junior team that was part of the Ontario Hockey Association, he was appointed a district representative for the league, and rose through the executive ranks to the role of president by 1915, a position he held for three years. During that same time, Captain Sutherland served as president of the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association. Among his many accomplishments was the establishment of the Memorial Cup, a trophy honouring those men who gave their lives during the first Great War and emblematic of the junior hockey championship of Canada.

Through his entire hockey life, Captain Sutherland claimed that Kingston was the birthplace of hockey. "Historians are said to differ considerably on the place in which the great Caesar first saw the 'light of day,' and similarly in respect to the birthplace of Canada's national winter sport, hockey," stated Sutherland. "There may be some who still claim sundry and diverse places as being the authentic spot or locality. Whatever measure of merit the claim of other places may have, I think it is generally admitted and has been substantially proven on many former occasions that the actual birthplace of organized hockey is the city of Kingston, in the year 1888."

Although Sutherland had the year wrong (it was 1886), he based his claim on a game played between Queen's University and the Royal Military College at Dix's Rink, on the harbour in front of Kingston's municipal buildings.

The Birth of the Hockey Hall of Fame: September 10th
1943
James T. Sutherland was often
referred to as the "Father of Hockey"
by his peers.
Largely due to Sutherland's convincing arguments claiming Kingston as hockey's birthplace, the CAHA and the NHL agreed to establish a Hockey Hall of Fame in that city. In a meeting held September 10, 1943, Kingston's mayor, Stuart Crawford, was elected president of the newly-established Hockey Hall of Fame.

While plans were being made to finance the construction of an actual building, the Hall of Fame inducted its first members in 1945 — Dan Bain, Hobey Baker, Dubbie Bowie, Chuck Gardiner, Eddie Gerard Frank McGee, Howie Morenz, Tommy Phillips, Harvey Pulford, Art Ross, Hod Stuart and Georges Vezina were added in the Player Category, while Sir Montagu Allan and Lord Frederick Stanley were included in the Builder Category.,

Construction was delayed by exorbitant building costs, but the Hockey Hall of Fame continued to induct Honoured Members, although not annually. The next flight, taking place in 1947, included a number of players and builders, including two of the people who had furthered the dream of a Hall of Fame for hockey -- 'Cyclone' Taylor and Captain James T. Sutherland.

On September 30, 1955, Sutherland died, never seeing the realization of his vision. Mired in bureaucracy and lacking funds, building the Hockey Hall of Fame in Kingston still had not begun. By 1958, NHL President Clarence Campbell grew impatient with the delays and withdrew the NHL's support of Kingston as home for the Hall of Fame. Instead, a decision was made to locate the permanent home of the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. The Kingston organizing committee reeled with the news, but continued their quest begun by Captain Sutherland. In 1965, they opened the Hockey Hall of Fame in Kingston (later to be named the International Hockey Hall of Fame).

Toronto was a natural location for the Hockey Hall of Fame. In fact, there was a predecessor of sorts already in existence. In 1947, Harry Price, the chairman of the Sports Committee for the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE), traveled across Canada to enlist support in constructing a museum dedicated to Canadian athletes and their achievements. On August 24, 1955, Canada's Sports Hall of Fame held its opening ceremonies in a building on the CNE grounds that had once housed the Stanley Barracks, ironically, named after Lord Frederick Stanley, who donated hockey's magnificent Stanley Cup. Canada's Sports Hall of Fame included a National Hockey Hall of Fame, and included twenty-three players and ten builders, all of whom had first been elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in Kingston.

Having transferred allegiance to Toronto in 1958, and receiving the official support of the CAHA that same year, the NHL honoured the forty-two players and builders who had up to that point been inducted into the homeless Kingston shrine at a ceremony attended by all but three of the thirty-four living inductees. Each received a scroll to commemorate their achievements in and for hockey.

Our First Home at the CNE Officially Opens: August 26th
1961

The Hockey Hall of Fame was officially opened on August 26, 1961. Canadian Prime Minister John Diefenbaker and United States Ambassador Livingston T. Merchant presided over the opening. "There is nothing greater than hockey to bring about national unity and a closer relationship between the United States and Canada," stated Prime Minister Diefenbaker at that time.

The Hockey Hall of Fame enjoyed landmark visitation during the annual twenty day-run of the CNE, but was unable to charge admission during that period. Visitors during the remainder of the year didn't cover the cost of operating the business. By the mid-1980's, the Hockey Hall of Fame was costing the NHL over $300,000 a year, with maintenance costs escalating rapidly. Then-NHL president John Ziegler took the leading role in finding a new location. "We agreed that if we were going to plan on a new leading edge facility, it would have to serve not only as a museum but also as a place where fans could have fun and interact with the exhibits," he recalled.

In its inaugural year, the Hockey Hall of Fame drew over 750,000 visitors.
The NHL's former Vice President of Officiating, Scotty Morrison, was selected as Vice President of Project Development, heading a committee to propose locations, assisted by Steve Ryan, the president of NHL Enterprises, Ken Sawyer from the NHL's financial department and Norm Green, one of the owners of the Calgary Flames. Although several cities bid on the opportunity to be home to the Hockey Hall of Fame, it was finally agreed that the Hall should remain in Toronto.

Having outgrown its CNE location, the committee searched for an appropriate new location, deciding on an empty but highly impressive heritage building located at the corner of Yonge and Front in Toronto's downtown core. "We agreed that the location would provide unparalleled ease of recognition and accessibility, situated only a short walk from Union Station, Toronto's central commuter hub," said Ziegler.

As part of an agreement with the City of Toronto, the developer (BCE Place) was obligated to restore the building to its original splendour and make it available to a non-profit, cultural institution. The Hockey Hall of Fame was an ideal candidate, and both BCE (Bell Canada Enterprises) and the City of Toronto's Land-Use Committee agreed to the new tenants.

The magnificent building, constructed in 1885 as the head office of the Bank of Montreal, replaced a smaller bank that had existed on that site since 1845. Designed by Darling and Curry, the architects who had recently completed the equally august Victoria Hospital for Sick Children on College Street, the Bank of Montreal's head office was the most striking of Toronto's nineteenth-century bank buildings.

Astonishingly, the building was one of but a few in the area to survive Toronto's Great Fire of 1904. The blaze, reportedly begun by a stove left burning at the end of the workday on April 19, 1904 at the E. & S. Currie neckwear factory on the north side of Wellington Street near Bay, destroyed the vast majority of the district bounded by Yonge to the east, Bay to the west, Front to the south and Wellington to the north.

The Move to BCE Place now Brookfield Place: June 18th
1993
Nearly every living Honoured Member was on hand to open the Hockey Hall of Fame's new location at BCE Place now Brookfield Place in downtown Toronto.
On June 18, 1993, the Hockey Hall of Fame officially opened at its extraordinary, new home at BCE Place now Brookfield Place. The state of the art facility, renovated at a cost of $27 million, was the integral reason that the Hockey Hall of Fame has emerged as the innovative leader among sporting shrines. In its first year of operation at the new location, more than 500,000 guests visited the Hall of Fame, far exceeding the 325,000 projected.

As a forerunner in the Sports Hall of Fame industry, the Hockey Hall of Fame has succeeded in diversifying its business to include thriving hospitality, retail, licensing, educational and outreach programs.

Through a significant contribution and alliance agreement with the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF), the Hockey Hall of Fame opened the "Tissot World of Hockey Zone", a 3,500 square-foot area dedicated to the global game, including World and Olympic competition and profiles on all IIHF Member Countries.

The IIHF's initial contribution also supported the relocation and expansion of the existing HHOF resource centre and archive facility.

New Millennium Revitalization Plan Completion: March 10th
2006
The NHL Zone was the final stage of Hockey Hall of Fame's ambitious revitalization plan.
In keeping with its mandate to continually change and add exciting new features, the Hockey Hall of Fame allocated over $12 million on exhibit enhancements between the years 2000 and 2006 as part of its New Millennium Revitalization Plan. As a result, nearly every inch of the 57,000 square-foot facility, with the exception of the Verizon Great Hall and replica Montreal Canadiens dressing room, has been renovated since 1998, providing guests with a fresh new experience.

In keeping with its public mandate as a Canadian cultural institution, the Hockey Hall of Fame continues to foster unprecedented growth in its archival and museum collections. For the past few years, the Hall has been exploring various real estate options in the interest of expanding and consolidating its archive and artifact storage requirements into a satellite facility to support its principal entertainment attraction at Brookfield Place. In October 2007, a long-term lease commitment was made to relocate the HRCA as part of a new $34 million 4-pad arena complex to be constructed and operated by the Lakeshore Lions in Toronto's Lakeshore West district, which will also become the permanent training and practice facilities for both the Toronto Maple Leafs and Toronto Marlies Hockey Clubs. Scheduled for completion in August 2009, the new HRCA will occupy approximately 18,000 sq. ft. with a portion of the space dedicated to Hockey Canada's grass roots research and development programs.

D.K. (Doc) Seaman Hockey Resource Centre Unveiled: September 8th

On September 8, 2009, Bill Hay, Chairman of the Hockey Hall of Fame unveiled the new state-of-the-art "D.K. (Doc) Seaman Hockey Resource Centre" within a new 4-pad arena complex developed by the Lakeshore Lions Club in partnership with the City of Toronto and Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment Ltd., during the official opening ribbon cutting ceremony.

Named in honour of the late Daryl K. (Doc) Seaman, one of the founding owners of the Calgary Flames who passed away in January 2009 at age 86, the 18,000 square foot facility is now the new home of the Hockey Hall of Fame's vast artifact and archival collections and will serve as the focal point for research into the history of Canada's great game and cultural export. In addition, Hockey Canada will occupy a portion of the Hall's premises with a resource centre to support grass roots development programming, along with high performance and sledge hockey events in conjunction with the adjacent ice facilities.

Funded, in part, by contributions from the Seaman Hotchkiss Hockey Foundation, International Ice Hockey Federation, Department of Canadian Heritage and a group of ten individual donors forming the "HRCA Founders Committee", the $4.0 million resource centre is the most comprehensive archive and research facility in the world dedicated to collecting and preserving resource materials related to the history of hockey.

In addition to serving thousands of correspondents, media, administrators, teams, players, fans, students, teachers, museums and libraries each year, it plays an integral role in the planning and development of the Hockey Hall of Fame's exhibition, outreach, fundraising and charitable activities.

On Friday, March 9, 2012, Bill Hay, Chairman and CEO of the Hockey Hall of Fame (HHOF), along with Imperial Oil Limited executives and HHOF Honoured Members officially unveiled the "Esso Great Hall". As home to the Stanley Cup, all the major NHL trophies and recognition structures for individuals elected into Honoured Membership, the Hall's "cathedral for the icons of hockey" had previously been closed to the public since January 1, 2012 for various improvements at a price tag of $1.7-million.

The completion of the "Great Hall Renewal Project (2012)" coincided with the renewal of HHOF's principal lease at Brookfield Place through the year 2032. "Our association with Imperial Oil started in 1991 and has resulted in a successful marketing relationship for over 20 years," said Hay. "It's because of the outstanding commitment and on-going support of Imperial Oil that we are able to enhance our most pristine asset and focal point of the guest experience with the revitalized Esso Great Hall."
