Social Reaction: Don Hay sets WHL record for all-time coaching victories

 

Saturday’s game for the Kamloops Blazers marked a special achievement on home ice as head coach Don Hay officially became the winningest coach in Western Hockey League history, passing the equally-great Ken Hodge as his Blazers upended the Portland Winterhawks by a 4-2 score.

While he may have missed out on social media mentions during his first two Memorial Cup Championship victories in 1994 and 1995, tribute to Hayt poured in from around the hockey world.

Tributes from his family as well as past and present members of the Blazers’ organization shared their thoughts.

Former players from Hay’s illustrious coaching career also chimed in:

Hay’s reach could not only be felt with the teams he’s spent his coaching career with, but through various team staff from around the league, who sent their best wishes to Hay.

Last, but certainly not least, media across a variety of mediums at the local, provincial and national level shared nice sentiments about the legendary coach.
