Welcome to, the official site of the National Hockey LeagueBienvenue à , le site officiel de la Ligue nationale de hockeyДобро пожаловать на, официальный сайт Национальной хоккейной лигиTervetuloa NHL:n viralliselle nettisivustolle NHL.comiinVälkommen till, NHL:s officiella web-sidaVítejte na, oficiálních stránkách National Hockey LeagueVitajte na, oficiálnych stránkach National Hockey LeagueWillkommen auf, der offiziellen Seite der National Hockey LeagueBienvenido a, el sitio oficial de la National Hockey LeagueWillie O'Ree's next step to be awarded the Congressional Gold Medal could come next week, around the same time his No. 22 will be retired by the Boston Bruins.The U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on the bill next week; House passage of the Willie O'Ree Congressional Gold Medal Act is the final legislative step for the NHL's first Black player to receive Congress' highest honor.The U.S. Senate passed the measure on July 27, 2021. "I am proud to co-lead the legislation to honor Willie with the Congressional Gold Medal and give him the place in history he deserves."Sponsored by a bipartisan group of lawmakers, the bill praises O'Ree for helping to integrate the NHL when he debuted with the Boston Bruins on Jan. 18, 1958, against the Montreal Canadiens at the Montreal Forum."When I first learned about the Willie O'Ree Congressional Gold Medal Act, my family and I believed it was an incredible honor to even be considered for such a special recognition," O'Ree said. We look forward to celebrating Willie O'Ree this year, as his jersey is retired to the rafters in Boston and as he inches closer to receiving the Congressional Gold Medal."O'Ree played 45 NHL games over two seasons (1957-58, 1960-61) with the Bruins and scored 14 points (four goals, 10 assists) despite being legally blind in his right eye, the result of an injury sustained playing junior hockey.
