Nashville Predators announcer Pete Weber, the longtime former Buffalo radio/TV voice, sent along some audio of the late Jim Kelley from their old show "This Week in Hockey" that aired on WGR during the 1988-89 season. Some classic Kelley insight on the Sabres and NHL issues of the day.
We'll be paying final respects to Kelley at his funeral today in South Buffalo. A giant in the hockey world and in the century-plus history of The Buffalo News.
Here's the topics and the clips:
