Hockey History As Told By Cardboard - - Barry Melrose


Melrose is to hockey viewers in the U.S. what Don Cherry is (was) to Canadian fans - minus the outrageous wardrobe perhaps.  Barry was born in Saskatchewan, but was sworn in as an American citizen in March 1998. He played 335 career NHL games with the Jets, Maple Leafs, and Red Wings.

Now broadcasting with ESPN, he's one of the leading proponents of hockey on the brand and towed the line even through the 2003-2021 time when ESPN ignored hockey completely.  Barry, like him or hate him, is a hockey icon.
