TORONTO – Veteran hockey broadcasters Don Cherry and Ron MacLean were honoured Monday with a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame.
Speaking at a ceremony in downtown Toronto, Walk of Fame CEO Melanie Hurley said the pair have made incredible contributions to Canadian culture.
Cherry and MacLean have hosted “Coach’s Corner” on “Hockey Night in Canada” together for nearly 30 years.
Cherry, a former NHL coach of the year and minor-league hockey player, started the segment in 1980.
MacLean joined as his co-host in 1987.
Cherry approved of their star’s design, joking that his name was on top “as it should be.”
