About the Author

In 2005, WILLIE O'REE received the Order of New Brunswick, the highest honour of the Province of New Brunswick. In 2008, O'Ree was named to the Order of Canada, and the Fredericton, New Brunswick City Council named their new hockey arena after him in honour of his accomplishments. In 2018, the NHL established the Willie O'Ree Community Hero Award in his honour. The award recognizes those who, like O'Ree, have used hockey to build character, teach life skills and foster positive values. In November 2018, O'Ree was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. He remains a pubic figure with an extensive network across North America.
