    He is a member of 'Hockey's First Family' which saw his sons, Lynn, and Muzz and grandsons Craig and Dick become involved with the NHL in various capacities.
    Following his retirement from coaching, the NHL named the Patrick Division (present day Atlantic Division) in his honor.
    In honor to his contributions to hockey in the United States, USA Hockey named its award for outstanding service in his honor.
    He was the first head coach in the history of the New York Rangers franchise.
