The passing of Rangers great Harry Howell has been felt across the hockey community, by both his former teammates and others involved in the game he loved.

“Harry was a first-class individual, as was his whole family,” former Rangers forward Vic Hadfield, Howell’s teammate for eight seasons, said on Sunday. “We were very, very close, the two families. Harry was a very humble guy, the nicest guy, someone who would give you the shirt off his back. Just a wonderful individual.

“When we first went to New York, he took us in and made sure we all had places to live and were able to get to the games. We just watched what he was doing. He wasn’t boisterous, but he was a quiet leader and just a genuine good guy.”
