Memorial Cup notebook: Spitfires Day, Sea Dogs Veleno make tournament history - Windsor StarFriday, June 02, 2017
CHL. This decision is based on talent, academics and maturity level.Day is the fourth Ontario Hockey League player granted exceptional status. He follows in the footsteps of John Tavares, Belle River’s Aaron Ekblad and Connor McDavid, who were all granted exceptional status, but never appeared in a Memorial Cup.“Sean Day’s a pretty good player,” said Veleno, 17. “He deserved exceptional status and worked hard for it.”Veleno is the first player in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League to be granted the status. Originally, he missed the deadline to apply for early entry, but was given a second opportunity.“I missed it, at first, but they gave me a second chance to reconsider it and I’m grateful I got the status,” said Veleno, who’s not eligible for the NHL Draft until 2018. “It was a long process and I’m grateful for it.”Day knows little about Veleno’s game, but has heard plenty about him from Windsor rookies born in 2000.“I hear he’s pretty good,” said Day, who was acquired by Windsor in a trade with Mississauga. “He’s had a pretty good year, but we’re different players.”Home jerseys honour HMCS WindsorAs is tradition for the host team at the Memorial Cup, the Spitfires wore a special military-themed uniform in Friday’s tournament opener.The blue-and-cream jerseys featured the logo of the HMCS Windsor, which is an active Canadian military submarine.Those jerseys will be auctioned off online by the CHL with the proceeds used to support veterans and their dependents.Hayward passesSeveral members of the Spitfires scouting staff were planning to pay their respects to former scout Jim Hayward, who suffered from pulmonary fibrosis and passed away earlier this week.

Clark Davey, 1928-2019: 'The true journalist of journalists' - Ottawa CitizenWednesday, March 27, 2019
He was heartbroken after failing his medical, but an English teacher told him that people would pay him to write. So he enrolled in the first journalism degree course taught at University of Western Ontario, graduating in 1948 and joining the newsroom of the Chatham Daily News.There, he worked under Richard "Dic" Doyle, but moved to Kirkland Lake when the Thomson newspaper chain made him editor-in-chief of the Northern Daily News. His time there was brief, however, as his girlfriend, Joyce Gordon, issued him an ultimatum: Northern Ontario or me. He chose her: they married in September 1952.In the meantime, he joined the newsroom of the Globe and Mail, where his mentor Doyle had been working for a year.As a reporter with the Globe, Davey covered national and international affairs, including the Suez Canal crisis, the St. Lawrence Seaway project and the cancellation of the Avro Arrow program. During the 1957 federal election campaign, he recognized that Tory leader John Diefenbaker was gaining momentum and might actually win, and convinced his editors to allow him to stay with the Chief's campaign for 40 days.

When Doyle became editor of the Globe in 1963, he chose Davey as his managing editor, and, according to Mills, the two raised the broadsheet's reputation from that of a local paper to a national one. Davey was managing editor for 15 years before joining the Vancouver Sun in 1978. He was publisher there until 1983, when he took over at the Gazette. He was publisher of the Citizen from 1989 to 1993. He was also president and chair of The Canadian Press, and co-founder and president of the Michener Awards Foundation that oversees the country's most prestigious journalism prize."He was the true journalist of journalists," says Kim Kierans, journalism professor at University of King's College in Halifax and Michener Foundation board member. "He told me when I last saw him in November, ‘If we're not providing the encouragement for journalism organizations and journalists within them to do the journalism that matters, then we're in trouble as a democracy.'"He was also a lovely man, smart and sparkling … with incredible enthusiasm for the business and its future."According to Mills, Davey, who in 2002 led a protest on the steps of the Ottawa Citizen after Mills was fired for running an editorial critical of then-prime minister Jean Chrétien, was known as tough and gruff, "but deep down he was a really kind and thoughtful person, and a very good friend who was always fair to people. But if you didn't know him, he could be intimidating."And although he called the shots on the job, it was Joyce who ruled the home roost. According to son Ric, his father only stopped the presses twice - once while at the Globe, when Joyce called him to report that she and Ric thought they had just seen a UFO."That was the kind of pull she had over him," says Ric.Clark Davey is survived by his wife, Joyce; brother Kenneth George; children Ric (Rita Celli), Kevin (Margaret) and Clark Jr. (...
