Commissioner Bettman statement on the passing of Budd Lynch

NEW YORK (October 9, 2012) -- National Hockey League Commissioner

Gary Bettman today released the following statement regarding the passing

of long-time Detroit Red Wings publicist, broadcaster and public address

announcer Budd Lynch:

"Budd Lynch had seen so much Red Wings history, had become so much a

part of their heritage, that no visit to Joe Louis Arena for a Red Wings

home game felt truly 'official' without hearing his voice. The National

Hockey League mourns the passing of a war hero, a Hall of Famer and an

outstanding ambassador for the game. We send heartfelt condolences to his

family, the Red Wings and their fans."
