Winnipeg Blues Website

“If you’re going to play in the NHL, you will. All you’ve got to do is give everything you possibly can every single day of your life and the game will find you. You don’t have to go find the game.”

Mr. Paul Maurice, addressing Blues players at the 2015 Gala Dinner

“No player in the history of professional hockey – not Gordie Howe, not Maurice (Rocket) Richard, not Bobby Hull, not Bobby Orr, not even Phil Esposito – did what Darryl Sittler accomplished last night at Maple Leaf Gardens.”

John Iaboni, Toronto Sun, February 8, 1976
