Gary Bettman On The Passing Of Budd Lynch

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."

Upon hearing of Mr. Lynch’s death.  Bettman remarked ” Who’s Budd Lynch?”

And if Budd hadn’t been the consummate professional, I’m sure he would have joined every Wings fan in booing the Garden Gnome whenever he showed his minuscule self at The Joe.

The reality is that Gary Bettman’s name should never be mentioned in the same sentence as _______. Budd Lynch.
