Mr Jacques Demers received a great gift two days after his birthday, he was nominated as Senator by the Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

Jacques Demers is recognized as a proven professional hockey coach. He began his illustrious career in 1972 as coach of the Chicago Cougars in the World Hockey League; a few years later, in 1979, he became the first head coach of the Quebec Nordiques. His career has also featured coaching stints with the St. Louis Blues and then the Detroit Red Wings.

After a short hiatus, during which he worked as an analyst at Nordiques hockey games, he went on to coach the Montreal Canadiens. This was a particularly exciting time in his life, as he led the “Habs” to a Stanley Cup victory on June 9, 1993. He capped off his coaching career with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Today, on the strength of his experience in the big leagues, Jacques Demers can be seen on RDS, where he works as a hockey analyst. With customary verve, he captures the attention of all viewers, sharing his expertise and offering astute commentary

"Jacques Demers has enjoyed a most impressive career. He was nominated three times for coach of the year. On his right hand, he proudly wears the Stanley Cup ring captured with the Montreal Canadiens in 1993. He led his team to the conference finals on three occasions. He is also a member of the very select club of five National Hockey League coaches to have coached in more than 1,000 consecutive games. Mr. Demers knows the importance of teamwork, and with unfailing dynamism and verve, he is always happy to share his experience, and by that very fact, to open the doors to success for your company.
