A true monument of sports journalism has left us. But he leaves us his inexhaustible passion for sports coverage as a legacy. Thank you Yvon for your trenchant opinions, which were always welcome, bringing debate and often laughter.
RIP my Yvon! https://t.co/Lx2QVaOeQi

The man I played my first pro games with, and a few hundred after that!
Thanks for the friendship, for the advice. But above all, for the good times spent with you.
It’s so hard to believe there won’t be any more.
My thoughts are with Éric, Raphaël and the whole family. https://t.co/R26VFoe3gb

When I was three apples high, I already idolized Yvon.
Then I had the opportunity to meet him at TVA and my admiration for him only grew.
What a kind, respectful, listening man. What a genuine man.
I’ll miss our discussions. Thank you for everything. https://t.co/VkI7mmyv7F

Sincere sympathies to the family and friends!
“Comment ça va mon Yvon?” on air but it was Mr. Pedneault off air.
A 🏒 man but a great man who cared for his wife to the end.
You can go 🕺🏻 a twist with Mrs. Pedneault
Have a good rest! https://t.co/9R4qSComzA

Yvon Pedneault spent over 50 years in journalism, working for almost every newspaper company in Quebec, including La Presse. He and Marcel Desjardins are the only former LP reporters in the Hockey Hall of Fame. My condolences to his loved ones. https://t.co/UFnu2itsO0

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.
Frank Seravalli, President of the Association of Hockey Journalists, also wished to honour Mr. Pedneault’s memory.
On behalf of the @ThePHWA, sending sincere condolences on the passing of Yvon Pedneault, one of the titans of field hockey media in Quebec over the last 50 years. He was the 1998 recipient of the Elmer Ferguson Memorial Award and a true original. He will be missed. https://t.co/VAC0L2BoG2

– Great read.
Was pondering how jarring it was when Sean Avery popped up in Oppenheimer. Got me thinking: what are the most iconic movie and TV roles for NHLers?
