Sad day for hockey fans all over the World...
By Stu Hackel, NYT Slap Shot blog, Sept. 27, 2008, "Hockey Mourns the Passing of Reggie Dunlap"
The Charlestown Chiefs announced today the passing of former coach Reginald (Reggie) Dunlap, who famously coached the Chiefs to the Federal League Championship in 1977.
Dunlap (aka Paul Newman) died Friday at his home in Westport, Conn. He was 83.
Boudreau had a bit part in “Slapshot,” and he was asked about his memories of Newman after Saturday’s game.
“It’s unfortunate,” said the Caps bench boss. “My wife phoned me [and told me] that. What a great humanitarian. A fabulous actor. I watched so many of his movies. As you know, I met him a little bit. A humanitarian to the end. He had a great life. My condolences go to his family.”
