Detroit, MI, United States (4E Sports) - Hockey Hall of Fame member Marcel Pronovost , who won the Stanley Cup five times as a player and three times as a scout, passed away Sunday. He was 84.
Pronovost recorded 345 points in 1,206 games in 21 seasons as a defenseman with the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs. He won the Stanley Cup for the first time even before he played a regular-season game.
The Red Wings recalled him from their minor-league affiliate in Omaha during the 1950 Stanley Cup Playoffs to fill in when Red Kelly was moved from defense to forward to replace an injured Gordie Howe.
Pronovost had one point in nine games as the Red Wings beat the Maple Leafs in the semifinals and the New York Rangers in the Cup Final.
Pronovost also was part of Cup championship teams with the Red Wings in 1952, 1954 and 1955. He made four consecutive NHL All-Star teams, including First Team in 1960 and 1961.
He was traded to the Maple Leafs in 1965 and was a key part in the Maple Leafs winning the Cup in 1967.
Pronovost retired in 1971 and went into coaching. He spent parts of two seasons as head coach of the Buffalo Sabres and parts of two others as an assistant coach with the Red Wings.
Since 1990, he had been an Ontario-based scout for the New Jersey Devils, where he helped build Cup champions in 1995, 2000 and 2003.
