inducted into hall of fame

web posting

From ringette to rugby, here are the other new Ottawa
Sports Hall of Fame members

Jim Kyte
Old-school best described Kyte’s style as a National Hockey League
defenceman for 13 seasons.

Kyte enjoyed a standout junior hockey career with the Cornwall Royals
before the Winnipeg Jets selected him 12th overall in the 1982 NHL draft.

In what was then a far more physical NHL game, Kyte was an intimidating
presence in front of the net, along the boards and with the gloves off. In
598 contests, he registered 17 goals, 49 assists and 1,342 penalty
minutes.

After playing the Jets, Kyte also played four games for his hometown
Ottawa Senators in their 1992-93 expansion season and had other stints
with the Pittsburgh Penguins, Calgary Flames and San Jose Sharks.

He accomplished all that despite being the first NHL player to be legally
deaf. He also founded the Canadian Hearing Impaired Hockey Association.

He now serves as dean of the Algonquin College School of Hospitality and
Tourism.

random deafsports thoughts

Jim Kyte (see above) is the only deaf player to have played
in the NHL.

He was not the most athletic hockey player.

He survived 13 seasons in the NHL because of one thing -
his fists!

A former Gallaudet hockey player made this comment years ago
that DeafDigest Sports editor never forgot. The comment
was this:

I do not respect Kyte because of his fists
