NEWARK, New Jersey (AP)—Former NHL coach Pat Burns, who led the New Jersey Devils to the 2003 Stanley Cup title, has died. He was 58.

Devils President Lou Lamoriello says Burns died of cancer Friday in Sherbrooke, Quebec.

Lamoriello said hockey has lost a “great friend and ambassador.”

Burns led New Jersey to its third Stanley Cup championship when the Devils beat the Anaheim Mighty Ducks in seven games.

Burns also coached Boston, Toronto and Montreal, twice leading the Bruins to the Stanley Cup finals. He also led the Canadiens to the NHL championship in his first season with Montreal.

He was the first coach to win three Jack Adams Awards as the NHL’s top coach.

Canadian actor Leslie Nielsen, who most famously achieved global success in comedy movies such as "Airplane!" and "The Naked Gun," has died aged 84, Manitoba radio station CJOB reported Sunday.

His death was first reported in unconfirmed messages on Twitter late Sunday that suggested the actor had died in the hospital after suffering from pneumonia.

His nephew Doug Nielson, told CJOB that Leslie had been in the hospital in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida for 12 days and that with family and friends by his side at 5:30pm Sunday "he just fell asleep and passed away."

Born in Regina, Canada, Leslie Nielsen appeared in more than 100 movies and hundreds of television shows over the course of his career.

Awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, he was also made an Officer of the Order of Canada in 2002 despite also being a naturalized US citizen.

He was married four times, and had two children from his second marriage, Maura and Thea Nielsen.

I was so sad to hear about his death on CityNews at 6 today. For at least the past year or so its been a routine of mine to watch Mark on CityNews at 11 looking forward to his jokes, especially when he chatted with Kathrine after sports. It hasn't been the same for the past two months without him on CityNews at 11. He will be missed. Not only CityNews but City TV in general without him will be different since he was the voice behind all their commercials.
