Hockey Hall of Fame broadcaster Bob Cole speaks as part of Thank You, Mr. Hockey Day, an event to honour the late Gordie Howe at Sasktel Centre in Saskatoon on Sunday. Cole was emcee for the event, which was held after Howe's remains were interred during a private ceremony earlier in the day at a statue of him outside of the arena. It’s been an especially noteworthy week for Cole, who two days earlier had received his Order of Canada from Governor-General David Johnston at Rideau Hall in Ottawa. Cole’s appointment was announced in December of 2014 and he was originally scheduled to receive his Order in the spring of 2015, but had to postpone his ceremony as he was calling a game on the same date. It’s another honour for the long-time Hockey Night in Canada broadcaster, who was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1996. Locally, Cole received an honorary Doctorate of Laws degree from Memorial University in 2002, is a member of the Newfoundland and Labrador Sports Hall of Fame, Hockey NL Hall of Fame, Newfoundland and Labrador Curling Hall of Fame and St. John’s Baseball Hall of Fame. Cole, whose autobiography is set to be released next month, began calling hockey for CBC Radio in 1969, and joined the HNIC television crew in 1973. He continues to call games for Sportsnet.
