Jeanneret, MacGregor get nod from Hall of Fame; Fisher retires from Gazette

8 Comments

Buffalo Sabres play-by-play man Rick Jeanneret and Canadian hockey writer Roy MacGregor will be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame on Nov. 12 as media honorees.

Jeanneret has been calling Sabres games since 1971, but instead of reading about him, just watch this instead:

McGregor, currently a columnist with the Globe and Mail, has won numerous awards for his newspaper and magazine writing, and is also an accomplished author.

So congratulations to Jeanneret and MacGregor.

Also congratulations to Red Fisher, the long-time (and we mean long-time) Canadiens chronicler with the Montreal Gazette. Fisher, 85, is retiring after a Hall-of-Fame career that started on March 17, 1955 – the day of the Rocket Richard riot.
