Saskatchewan Loses A Hockey Icon -- Graham Tuer Passes Away

Image result for graham tuer

The hockey world has a lost true character, and a true great.

Graham Tuer died in Regina on Tuesday morning at the age of 87.

Tuer did it all during his career in hockey in a variety of roles, and earlier this summer he was inducted into the Saskatchewan Hockey Hall of Fame.

Trips to the rink were more special when you had a chat to speak with this wonderful man who was as sharp as a tack, and had a special sense of humour.  His departure leaves a gigantic void in the Regina hockey community and knowing I will not see him or speak with him at the Brandt Centre this winter is very sad indeed.

He will be missed!

Saying he was a great man would be an understatement.

There are many young men who can thank Graham for the opportunity they have had in the game.
