RIP Tom Webster. My first year broadcasting, Tom was part of Paul Maurice’s Coaching Staff with Canes. He always invited me to his hotel room on the road to break down film and teach me the game. Wonderful human being and tremendous teacher. Super hockey mind.

Sad to hear about the passing of Tom Webster. I had a soft spot for players who made their mark in the WHA…220 Goals in 6 seasons.
Had many a great discussion with Tom,when he coached in LA.
Later as a scout,Tom proved he had a great eye for talent,and was a mentor to many.
