from Jim Parker of the Windsor Star,
Warren Rychel has shown his brain for the game is every bit as good as his brawn was on the ice.
Undrafted into the National Hockey League, he earned a free-agent contract with the Chicago Blackhawks that led to a 12-year professional career that included parts of nines seasons in the NHL and culminated with a Stanley Cup title in 1996.
In his post-playing career as co-owner and general manager of the Windsor Spitfires, he has helped construct one of the elite programs in the Canadian Hockey League and one of just eight clubs to win back-to-back Memorial Cup titles.
Saturday, the 44-year-old Rychel, who is a graduate of Shoreline Minor Hockey, will be inducted into the Windsor/Essex County Sports Hall of Fame.
