Buffalo Sabres Hall of Famer Joe Crozier dies at 93

Former Buffalo Sabres coach and Hall of Fame hockey player Joe Crozier died Tuesday at the age of 93.

The former hockey great led the team to its first playoff appearance and was a legend in the early years of the league.

"He guided the Sabres to the franchise's first playoff appearance in 1972-73. In three seasons, he compiled a record of 77-80-35," the NHL's website reported.

"Crozier also served as an assistant coach during the 1984-85 season and worked as a team ambassador for many years after his coaching career ended," it added.

The hockey great was also the coach of Vancouver in 1969 and coached for Kitchener. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2010.

Crozier may have lived through more changes in the sport than almost any living player, participating in three professional leagues in two nations through nine decades of life as one of the all-time best players in the league.
