Don “Grapes” Cherry is a former hockey broadcaster, coach, player and team owner. He is best known as the former hockey analyst and commentator on the Hockey Night in Canada segment “Coach’s Corner.”
As a hockey player, Cherry won a Memorial Cup with the Barrie Flyers in 1953 and had a long career in the American Hockey League (AHL), winning the Calder Cup four times. He won coach of the year honours in both the AHL and National Hockey League (NHL) and coached the Boston Bruins to two Stanley Cup Finals before retiring from coaching.
His 39-year stint on “Coach’s Corner” made him a Canadian icon.
