Hockey analyst Don Cherry will immediately step down from his role with Hockey Night in Canada, Sportsnet announced on Monday.
The news comes one day after Sportsnet issued an apology for Cherry’s comments during Saturday’s Hockey Night broadcast.
Cherry, 85, has been on Coach’s Corner since 1982 when the program was first started on CBC.
He was a voice every Saturday night for hockey fans across the country, appearing alongside Coach’s Corner host Ron MacLean since 1986. His coverage extended into the Stanley Cup Playoffs as well.
