NEW YORK (October 9, 2012) -- National Hockey League Commissioner Gary Bettman today released the following statement regarding the passing of long-time Detroit Red Wings publicist, broadcaster and public address announcer Budd Lynch:
"Budd Lynch had seen so much Red Wings history, had become so much a part of their heritage, that no visit to Joe Louis Arena for a Red Wings home game felt truly 'official' without hearing his voice. The National Hockey League mourns the passing of a war hero, a Hall of Famer and an outstanding ambassador for the game. We send heartfelt condolences to his family, the Red Wings and their fans."
