A high-scoring centre with St. Marys Lincolns’ 1962-63 All-Ontario championship team has died.
A funeral for Rick McCann, 69, was held this past Saturday in London, where he resided. Jacques Cousineau and George Cifa, teammates on that provincial champion, attended.
In memory of McCann, a moment of silence was held prior to last Friday night’s Lincs’ home opener at the PRC.
McCann, who wore No. 7, played two seasons for the Lincolns. His next stop was two seasons with the Hamilton Jr. ‘A’ Red Wings. He also went on play professional hockey, playing a total of 43 games with Detroit Red Wings.
McCann was also a member of Team Canada when Father David Bauer coached the national team.
