Former NHL defense player Paul Coffey has been announced as the guest speaker for the Dresden Sports Hall of Fame induction ceremony and dinner starting at 6 p.m. on April 18 at Lambton-Kent Composite School in Dresden, Canada. This is an event that takes place every year to recognize some of the best athletes in the Dresden area, and this year the inductees will be Jim Ritchie, Dennis Lindsay, Dresden Minor Hockey Moms and the 1968-1970 Dresden Midgets. Tickets to the ceremony will cost $40 to attend and having Coffey as the speaker this year is sure to ignite a lot of energy in the room, as he is sure to talk about some of his own experiences playing professional hockey in the NHL.
Coffey was the 6th overall pick in the 1980 NHL draft by the Edmonton Oilers, and he continued to play in the league over a coarse of 21 years for nine different teams including the Pittsburgh Penguins, Los Angeles Kings, Detroit Red Wings, Hartford Whalers, Philadelphia Flyers, Chicago Blackhawks, Carolina Hurricanes and the Boston Bruins. He is also a four-time Stanley Cup champion, a three-time James Norris Memorial Trophy winner, and he was inducted into the Penguins Hall of Fame in 2007 just a few years after his retirement.
He will be giving a thrilling speech at the Dresden Sports Hall of Fame later this month to honor many of the city’s local athletes in a variety of categories.
