via the Toronto Maple Leafs,

Toronto Maple Leafs President & Alternate Governor Brendan Shanahan today released the following statement regarding the passing of Leaf great Johnny Bower:

"The entire Toronto Maple Leaf organization is deeply saddened following the passing of Johnny Bower.

Johnny was beloved by so many for much more than his Hall of Fame credentials as a player. It was his generosity of spirit, kindness and passion for people that made him a legend at life. The Toronto Maple Leafs, and our fans, are deeply indebted to Johnny for all that he gave to us, and taught us over the years. We will miss him dearly, but we know that his presence will forever be felt by our Club and our city.

Our deepest sympathies and gratitude go to Nancy, their children and the entire Bower family for sharing their husband, father and grandfather with us for so many years.

There may not be a more loved Toronto Maple Leaf nor a former player who loved them as much back."
