Yvon Pedneault’s death: the field hockey world unites to honor his memory
This morning, the field hockey world learned some sad news: Yvon Pedneault, who enjoyed an illustrious career in the sports media, sadly passed away this morning at the age of 77, following a bout of cancer.

On behalf of the entire DLC team, I would like to offer our most sincere condolences to the family and loved ones of one of the greats of his profession.

Because yes, Mr. Pedneault is one of the greats. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame and had a brilliant career that spanned more than 50 years, both as a journalist and as an analyst.

And he always did it with great class.

In Quebec, of course, the entire sports media world is mourning his passing today. When you look at the shower of tributes that have been pouring in since this morning, you realize that he has left his mark on many, many current members of the media.

Here are just a few of the messages that honored the memory of one of the greats:

During a television appearance this morning, Félix Séguin, who worked with him at TVA Sports, also paid tribute to the man who was a “role model” for him. Let’s just say that Mr. Pedneault was an excellent role model.

And even beyond Quebec, the late analyst leaves to mourn the entire media community that covers field hockey in North America.

Frank Seravalli, President of the Association of Hockey Journalists, also wished to honour Mr. Pedneault’s memory.

The Quebec media landscape has lost a monument today, and rightly so; his life and career have been honored as they should be.

He will never be forgotten.
