CALGARY, Alta. – Hockey Canada president and chief executive officer Tom Renney released the following statement on the passing of Al Arbour:

“The loss of Al Arbour will be felt in every thread of our hockey tapestry. One of the greatest coaches of all time, Mr. Arbour found a way to maximize every single player’s ability, and certainly got every ounce out of his troops. Few have been able to duplicate his effectiveness and success as a coach. He set himself apart by growing his players into champions off the ice too,” said Renney. “We at Hockey Canada extend our sincere condolences to his family, friends, and thousands who have been touched by one so humble, yet so significant.”
