from Kevin Allen of Detroit Hockey Now,

Former Philadelphia Flyers and Vancouver Canucks coach Bob McCammon, 80, died. Energetic McCammon was one of the game’s most colorful characters.

McCammon had also worked for the Detroit Red Wings as a pro scout. He launched his coaching career in Michigan when he coached the Port Huron Flags in 1973-74. He had played for the Flags prior to coaching them.

The Vancouver Province’s Patrick Johnston penned McCammon’s obituary, highlighting the unique way McCammon prepared his players for a playoff game.

Bob McCammon was quick-witted, full of energy. Everyone in the hockey world knew him well. He was outgoing, always ready to talk hockey.

continue for notes around the league..

I had a chance to spend some time with Bob McCammon. In another life I worked at a local health club and he came in to join.

We started talking about hockey and we hit it off right away. He did love to talk hockey and was a very nice man.

We saw each other a few more times and continued to talk hockey. A true hockey-lifer.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
