Ted Green Supplied
The McCauley area recently lost a very good friend. Ted Green passed away after a long battle with illness.
Ted had a long and successful career in professional hockey as a player and coach. He played many years for the Boston Bruins, Winnipeg Jets, and Hartford Whalers. He coached many years for the Edmonton Oilers (five Stanley Cups) and New York Rangers.
Ted retired in Edmonton and became very involved in the inner city. He served as Chairman of The Mustard Seed’s Golf Tournament for many years which raised thousands of dollars. He also was involved with serving meals etc. at The Mustard Seed.
In 2007, Ted had an idea to restore the old outdoor rink in McCauley. A group of businessmen and Oilers Alumni formed to raise money to restore and manage the facility. It was Ted’s dream to have a safe place for kids and families to skate and play shinny. That group became KIDS and a very successful 10 years have passed with many hundreds of kids benefitting from the use of the McCauley Rink.
Ted served on the Board of KIDS until his passing, and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
