CITY OF BARRIE TO HONOUR FORMER COLTS COACH, NHL LEGEND DALE HAWERCHUK

MAY 2, 2021  (23H17)      COOPER GODIN
When City of Barrie councilors meet on Monday night it is expected that they will reveal plans to honour former Colts head coach Dale Hawerchuk.

According to CTV News Barrie, city councilors will announce that a portion of Bayview Drive leading up to the parking lot of Sadlon arena, where the Colts play, will be named "Dale Hawerchuk Way" to honour and show thanks for all he did for the city's hockey community.

Hawerchuk passed away in August 2020 at the age of 57 after a battle with cancer.

The Hockey Hall of Famer spent nine seasons behind the bench for the Barrie Colts, and had a record of 305-269-38. He led the Colts to seven playoff appearances in his nine years as head coach, including four division titles, and a trip to the 2013 OHL Final where they lost to the London Knights in game seven with one second remaining in the third period.

Several players that Hawerchuk coached in his tenure with Barrie went on to the NHL and are having tremendous success. Some of those players include: Mark Scheifele, Tanner Pearson, Alex Pietrangelo, Aaron Ekblad, Rasmus Andersson, Andrei Svechnikov, Kevin Labanc, and Andrew Mangiapane.

Hopefully the City of Barrie will announce more details in the coming days, and it would be nice to see them hold a ceremony to honour Dale with fans in attendance.
