We learned tragic news this morning, the passing of Yvon Pedneault, an iconic figure in the Quebec media world. After over 60 years of covering the sporting activities of our favorite teams, Mr. Pedneault passed away following a health issue that unfortunately worsened rapidly.

Assigned to cover the news of the Tricolore for many years, his departure leaves a huge void. The Montreal Canadiens notably responded to the news by issuing an official statement thanking the journalist for his tremendous work over the past decades and offering their deepest condolences to those affected by this tragedy.

"It is with great sadness that the Montreal Canadiens organization learned this morning of the passing of renowned journalist Yvon Pedneault, who has made his mark in the history of the team as a reporter and analyst."

"Pedneault was a significant figure in the Quebec sports media landscape for over half a century. A sports enthusiast, Pedneault always combined passion and professionalism in his job. His contagious energy and authenticity will be missed by all those who had the opportunity to work alongside him." - Montreal Canadiens

Quebec mourns this morning, and we wish, once again, to send our thoughts to Mr. Pedneault's family and friends.
