Paul Cyr, who was one of the best players in the history of the WHL’s Victoria Cougars, has died. He was 48 years of age. Cyr played on the 1982 Canadian national junior team that won the world tournament in Minnesota. That team is recognized as the spark that ignited Canada’s love affair with the national juniors and the world tournament. Cleve Dheensaw of the Victoria Times Colonist has more on Cyr right here.
