A place among the greatest head coaches in NHL history will always be held by Alger Joseph "Radar" Arbour. His career totals of 1,606 games behind the bench and 781 victories trail only the legendaryScotty Bowman in the record ledger. Arbour's guidance contributed significantly to the New York Islanders' rapid ascent to competitive status in the 1970s and the club's subsequent run of four consecutive Stanley Cup wins from 1980 to 1983, as well as a record 19 consecutive playoff series wins from 1980 to 1984.
The Sudbury, Ontario, native played defense on the junior Windsor Spitfires of the OHA. After distinguishing himself as an amateur, he was signed by the Detroit Red Wings and joined the pro ranks with the Edmonton Flyers of the Western Hockey League in 1952-53. He split the next four years between Alberta, the Motor City and Sherbrooke in the Quebec senior loop.

In 1957-58, Arbour played his first full NHL season in the red and white of the Wings. Following that season, he was claimed by the Chicago Black Hawks, where he toiled for three years including 1961, the year of the franchise's Stanley Cup triumph. Arbour next played five seasons with the Toronto Maple Leafs and earned his second Stanley Cup ring in 1962. After spending the 1966-67 season in theAHL, he returned to contribute experience and stability to the defense corps of the expansion St. Louis Blues in 1967-68. Early in 1970-71, he retired as a player after 600 games over 14 years. Arbour was also one of the few players in league history to wear glasses while playing.

Upon retiring, Arbour was immediately hired to stand in as coach of the Blues for the remainder of the 1970-71 schedule. During the last 50 games of the season, the team responded well by posting a 21-15-14 mark before falling to the Minnesota North Stars in the quarterfinals of the playoffs.

Arbour guided St. Louis on an interim basis over the next two seasons but jumped at the greatest challenge of his young coaching career in 1973. Prior to the 1973-74 schedule, the New York Islanders were coming off a difficult expansion season in which they'd accumulated a mere 30 points. The organization felt it had some promise and required a young, ambitious figure to steer the team in the right direction. Arbour's positive impact on the team was immediate. The squad improvedits total to 56 points and began building around talented defenseman Denis Potvin.

The 1974-75 season saw the arrival of Arbour's Islanders as a competitive NHL franchise. They won 33 regular-season matches before enjoying a memorable playoff run. They defeated Pittsburgh in a seven-game quarter-finals after losing the first three games. In the semi-finals, they fell one game short of doing the same thing to the defending champion Philadelphia Flyers.

During each of the next four seasons, the Islanders finished with more than 100 points. This didn't translate into a Stanley Cup triumph, but the team did gain valuable experience. Following the 1978-79 campaign, Arbour was presented the Jack Adams Award as the NHL's top coach. In 1979-80, the Islanders attained their ultimate goal by defeating the Philadelphia Flyers in six games to win the Stanley Cup in their eighth season. They repeated this accomplishment in each of the next three years to become only the second NHL club to win four straight titles (Montreal did it twice). Their drive for five consecutive championships fell short when they lost to the Edmonton Oilers in the 1984 finals.

Afterward, Arbour marshaled the Islanders to solid if unspectacular results before stepping down following the 1985-86 season. He served as the organization's vice-president of player development before returning as the team's bench boss partway through the 1988-89 season. Arbour's contribution to the development of hockey in the United States was acknowledged in 1992 when his name was engraved on the Lester Patrick Trophy.

The pinnacle of his second installment behind the New York bench occurred in 1992-93 when the Islanders upset the defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins to reach the semi-finals. Arbour retired in 1994 as the second-winningest coach of all time, with 781 regular-season victories and 123 post-season triumphs to his credit. One of the major foundations in the history of the New York Islanders, Arbour was an obvious choice to enter the Hockey Hall of Fame Builders category in 1996. "Its behind the New York bench occurred in 1992-93 when the Islanders upset the defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins to reach the semi-finals. Arbour retired in 1994 as the second-winningest coach of all time, with 781 regular-season victories and 123 post-season triumphs to his credit. One of the major foundations in the history of the New York Islanders, Arbour was an obvious choice to enter the Hockey Hall of Fame Builder category in 1996.Even as a player, Al Arbour distinguished himself from the rest of the National Hockey League. A defensive defenceman par excellence, the Sudbury, Ontario-born Arbour was at his best protecting his netminder by blocking shots, in spite of the fact he wore glasses while playing.

Signed by the Detroit Red Wings, Al joined the junior Windsor Spitfires just shy of his seventeenth birthday. The goaltender he protected there was Glenn Hall, while teammates included other future Red Wings Earl Reibel, Glen Skov and Eddie Stankiewicz. During his four seasons in Windsor, Al would also play with Cummy Burton, Don Cherry, Larry Hillman, John Muckler and Dennis Riggin.

After winning a WHL championship with the Edmonton Flyers in 1952-53, Arbour saw his first NHL action the next season, playing 36 games with the Red Wings in 1953-54. Although he saw no action duringthe playoffs that spring, Al got his name engraved on the Stanley Cup for the first time following the Wings' seven-game series with the Montreal Canadiens in the final.

During that dynastic era for Detroit, the Red Wings had a surplus of fine defenceman, with Warren Godfrey, Bob Goldham, Larry Hillman, Red Kelly and Marcel Pronovost all earning time on the blueline,and Arbour anxiously waited for his chance, biding his time predominantly with the Edmonton Flyers. In 1954-55, he was named to the WHL's Second All-Star Team, but it wasn't until the playoffs of 1955-56 that Al saw NHL action again.

By 1957-58, Arbour had finally cracked the Red Wings line-up full-time. But in June 1958, he was plucked from Detroit's line-up by Chicago in the Intra-League Draft. Shoring up the Black Hawks blueline, Al spent three seasons in Chicago, including a second Stanley Cup championship in 1961.

After winning the Cup with Chicago, Al may have been disappointed to be selected from the Hawks by Toronto in the June 1961 Intra-League Draft, but it was fortuitous timing for the bespectacled defenceman, as he was part of the Toronto dynasty that won the Stanley Cup in 1962 and 1964 (he missed Toronto's 1963 Stanley Cup championship as he spent most of that season with the Leafs' AHL affiliate,the Rochester Americans, where he was named to the league's First All-Star Team. He made the All-Star squad again in 1964 and 1966, and was named the AHL's best defenceman in 1965). Championships became de rigueur to Arbour, who assisted Rochester to Calder Cup championships in 1965 and 1966.

With the NHL's expansion to twelve teams in time for the 1967-68 season, Al was left unprotected by Toronto and was grabbed by the St. Louis Blues. The veteran defenceman added much to the expansion franchise. The Blues secured a number of stars in the twilights of their careers that helped make St. Louis a formidable opponent to challenging teams. Besides Arbour, St. Louis boasted an inaugural season defence that included Doug Harvey, Noel Picard, Bob and Barclay Plager and Jean-Guy Talbot. Old pal Glenn Hall was in goal, while Red Berenson, Don McKenny, Gerry Melnyk, Dickie Moore and Ron Stewart added veteran presence to the offense. In four seasons with the Blues, Arbour played in the Stanley Cup Final three times.

I enjoyed the fun of it (playing); the feeling that you had after you won a hockey game," stated Arbour in Dick Irvin's book, 'Behind the Bench'. "There's no greater feeling than the one you get whenyou're a player and you go out and win a real tough game. I've had great feelings coaching and winning the Stanley Cup, but it never seemed to be the same feeling I got when I was a player."

In 1970, with the end of his playing career imminent, the thirty-eight-year-old Arbour was introduced to the idea of coaching. "Scotty Bowman was the one who got me interested in coaching," explainedAl. "I was playing for him in St. Louis atthe end of my career. He wanted to step aside and become the general manager and he wanted me to take over."

Arbour coached until February 1971, but returned to playing when Bowman returned behind the bench. Bowman was fired at the end of that season. "There was controversy all the time," admitted Arbour.

Al, who was under contract to the Blues, assumed the position of assistant general manager with St. Louis beginning with the 1971-72 season. At Christmas, with the team struggling, the coach, Bill McCreary, was fired and Al was asked to coach once again, and helped guide the Blues into the playoffs. By the following season, the situation changed once again. "I got into a conflict with Sid (Solomon III, the Blues' owner). We weren't hitting it off very well. I knew I was a markedman. I coached thirteen games and I was gone."

After scouting briefly for the Atlanta Flames, Arbour was approached with another offer to coach. "Bill Torrey asked me if I would be interested in coaching the (New York) Islanders. I told him no. Isaid I had four kids and wouldn't want to move them to New York." But after visiting Long Island for the first time, Al acquiesced and accepted the position. "You could see a good team in the making," said Arbour. "We got Denis Potvin for the defence, Trots (Bryan Trottier) at centreand other young bucks like Clark Gillies, Bob Bourne and John Tonelli. Then came the arrival of Mike Bossy."

The Islanders finished first overall in 1978-79, but were eliminated by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the playoffs. "We changed our format around a bit during that regular season," explained Arbour. "Everyone said to forget about the playoff losses to the Maple Leafs in 1978 and the Rangers in 1979. But I said, 'No, I don't want them to forget about it. Just remember that so it will never happen again.' We carried those losses into the season a little longer than I thought it wouldbe and I couldn't really get them going." Nevertheless, Al was chosen as coach of the year, winning the Jack Adams Trophy.

The next season, the Islanders added a significant piece to the puzzle. "At the trading deadline, we got Butch Goring from L.A. We had a very young team and he was the guy we needed with just the right kind of experience. We needed somebody that was going to have that calming influence. He had that affect on the team immediately and we were on our way from there forward," nodded Arbour.

Arbour was correct. The New York Islanders won the Stanley Cup for the first time in 1980, then proceeded on an extraordinary streak that saw the franchise win the championship four seasons in a row.In 1980, the Islanders defeated the Philadelphia Flyers in six games to win the Stanley Cup. The next spring, the victim was the Minnesota North Stars, whom the Islanders took in five games. It was afour-game sweep of the Vancouver Canucks in 1982 and in 1983, another four-game sweep, this time over the Edmonton Oilers.

At the conclusion of the 1985-86 season, Al retired as coach of the Islanders. But two and a half years later, after holding a management position with the team, Arbour was coaxed to return behind the bench. "I had never given any thought tocoaching again," said Arbour. Replacing Terry Simpson, he took over a team depleted of much of the talent he had enjoyed in the early-1980's. "When you're not accustomed to losing, it certainly does a job on you. It eats you up." In his second tenure coaching the Islanders, Al was behind the bench from 1988-89 to 1993-94. The zenith of his second installment coaching the Long Island squad took place when the Islanders reached the semi-finals by upsetting the Pittsburgh Penguins,defending Stanley Cup champions. Following the 1993-94 season, Al Arbour retired

Arbour retired having coached 1,499 games for the Islanders, more by 487 than any coach had been behind the bench with one franchise. Current coach Ted Nolan had an idea that Arbour should coach one more Islanders' contest to make the total a nice round figure. With the permission of general manager Garth Snow and owner Charles Wang, Arbour was approached about coaching again, just one more game,to bring his total with the Islanders to 1,500. "I haven't coached a game in 15 years," said an astounded Arbour. "I haven't seen a game in person in three years."

Or so he thought. On November 1, 2007, Al celebrated his seventy-fifth birthday. The next day, he signed a one-day contract to coach the Islanders and on Saturday, November 3, Arbour was behind the bench as his beloved Islanders were challenged by the Pittsburgh Penguins. "This is an incredible gesture by Ted and the Islanders," said Arbour at the time. "I am flattered that Ted thought of me and I wouldn't miss this night for the world. I told the team that I do not want any pre-game fanfare. I'm there to coach the game and help Ted and my Islanders try to earn two points against a very toughteam."

Commenting on the way the game had evolved, Al stated, "It's a totally different game now, a European game with skating and winding up and moving the puck. I really like the way they opened the game up."

Arbour and the Islanders defeated Pittsburgh 3-2, with Miroslav Satan scoring the game-winner. The victory gave Al a lifetime record of 782 career regular seasons win, 577 losses and 248 points in 1,607 regular season games, making him the second-winningest NHL coach of all time. With the Islanders alone, Arbour coached 1,500 regular season games, with 740 wins, 537 losses and 223 ties. In playoff action, Arbour's career record is 118 wins and 83 losses in 201 games.

As a coach, Al led his teams to four Stanley Cup championships, was named coach of the year in 1979 and was awarded the Lester Patrick Trophy for contributions to American hockey in 1992. On January 25, 1997, Al was honoured by the New York Islanders with a special night. For his incomparable dedication to the sport, Al Arbour was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in the Builder Category in 1996.

* Medical Information:He was seriously ill for 3 days & significantly ill for a while before dying. Contributing to death were chronic myocarditis & arteriosclerosis. He also suffered a chronic brainsyndrome for 3 months.

* Note:

Albert seems to have never married or had children. In the 1880 Census, Albert was reported as being born in Quebec. This idea again came up during the 1920 Census, when he reportedly immigrated in 1882 and became a naturalized US Citizen in1900. However, the 1910 and 1930 Census returns show him as being born in Vermont, which agrees with his parents' reported immigration in 1878. Furthermore, there is an actual birth record of him among the vital records of Vermont.

According to his WWI Draft Registration, Albert was born in the US. He was of medium height and medium build with black eyes and black hair.

NORTH POWNAL, VT, HAS FLOOD DAMAGE -- Albert Arbour Saves Train From Plunging Into River By Flagging It Just In Time
After having had all the telegraph and telephone communication as well as mail service and delivery of food supplies cut off by the flood, North Pownal, VT, which suffered damage estimated at $10,000is now engaged in the task of attempting to restore something like normal condiitons. Selectman John Savery has been one of the most tireless of the relief workers and is still on the job. Greylock Mill Co suffered water damage and will not be able to resume operations for several days, the middle pier under the East River bridge in Pownal was washed away, the Hemlock bridge was washed away, the bridge known as Poor Farm Road is in bad condition, and Friss Hill is impassable. The state line bridge was also badly damaged and traffic from North Adams and Troy is blocked. The eastbound track of the Boston & Maine railroad near the New York State line was washed out. The Minute man passed safely over this bridge on Thursday afternoon, but only the fact that Albert Arbour flagged Train No. 60 a few minutes later, saved that train from toppling into the river. Just after the train had been brought to a stop, the track curved in for a distance of 75 feet and shortly later the track was undermined for 600 feet. Harold Arbour in traveling from Troy, where he attends school, to North Pownal Sunday had to use six different autos provided by the Boston & Maine and reached North Pownal after eight and a half hours of travel.
___Bennington Evening Banner (VT) -- Friday 28 Jan 1955

NHL Totals 47 5 1 6 56

Twenty years of pro hockey saw Jack get into the NHL for just 47 total games over two seasons, with first Detroit and then Toronto. Jack was a star in Western Canada with Calgary in the early 1920s until he was sold to the Detroit Cougars prior to the start of the 1926-27 season. He produced five points and 46 penalty minutes with the first-year franchise, but the team didn't make the playoffs and he found himself in the minors with the Detroit Olympic the next year. At this point, he was traded from Detroit to Toronto for Sailor Herberts, one of the bigger deals of the time, but he lasted only ten games with the Maple Leafs before being demoted to the Can-Pro league. Although Jack never made it back to the NHL, he did play another decade, first with the old Windsor Bulldogs of the International league and later in the Pacific Coast league. He retired in 1939.

On 01 Oct 1923, Jack traveled to the US from Vancouver, BC, via the port of Seattle, WA, on his way to play for the Seattle Metropolitans at the Seattle Hockey Club. He considered himself an electrician and listed his residence as Calgary, AB, as that is where he had lived and where he left wife Margaret F. at 119 15th Ave. He was reported to be 5' 8.5" with a medium complexion, brown hair, and grey eyes. Jack claimed to have previously been in the US in Sep 1921.

On 24 Nov 1923, Jack traveled to the US from Vancouver, BC, via the port of Seattle, WA, on his way to play for the Seattle Metropolitans at the Seattle Hockey Club. He considered himself an electrician and listed his residence as Calgary, AB, as that is where he had lived for the prior three years and where he left wife Margaret F. at 119 15th Ave. He was reported to be 5' 8.5" with a medium complexion, brown hair, and grey eyes. Jack claimed to have previously been in the US in Sep 1921. On this more recent trip he carried with him $75.

Saskatoon Star-Phoenix (SK) -- 13 Dec 1932
Windsor, ON -- 12 Dec -- Jack Arbour, veteran defense player of Windsor Bulldogs, tonight became manager of the team in place of the deposed Herb Mitchell. Mitchell was relieved of his managerial duties at a meeting of the directors. The action followed differences between Mitchell and the club directorate, in the opinion of observers. Mitchell was starting his sixth season as manager of the club. Arbour hails from Waubaushene, ON, and made his professional debut with Calgary inthe old Western Canada League in the season of 1921-1922. Later he was with Seattle in the Pacific Coast League.

In 1940, Jack reported that he had earned $900 in 1939, but it is unclear how as his occupation was not listed.

Since July 2009 she has served as President and CEO of the International Crisis Group.[1] She has made history with the indictment of a sitting head of state, Yugoslavian president Slobodan Milosevic, as well asthe first prosecution of sexual assault as the articles of crimes against humanity.
Early life[edit]
Arbour was born in Montreal, Quebec to Bernard Arbour and Rose Ravary, the owners of a hotel chain. She attended convent school, during which time her parents divorced. As editor of the school magazine, she earned a reputation for irreverence.[citation needed]
In 1967, she graduated from Collège Regina Assumpta, and proceeded to the Université de Montréal where she completed an LL.B. with distinction in 1970. She became the Law Clerk for Mr. Justice Louis-Philippe Pigeon of the Supreme Court ofCanada in 1971-1972 while completing graduate studies at the Faculty of Law (Civil Section) of the University of Ottawa. She was called to the Bar of Quebec in 1971 and to the Law Society of Upper Canada in 1977. She was made a Companion to the Order of Canada in 2007 "for her contributions to the Canadian justice system and for her dedication to the advancement of human rights throughout the world".[2] She was made a Grand Officer of the National Order of Quebec in 2009.[3] Shewas made a Commander of the National Order of the Legion of Honour in 2011.[4]
She has received many honorary Degrees, including Doctor of Civil Laws from the University of Western Ontario in June 2000,[5] Doctor of Humane Letters from Mount Saint Vincent University in May 2001,[6] and Doctor of Laws degrees from the University of British Columbia in November 2001,[7] the University of Waterloo in October 2006,[8] in June 2009 from the University of Alberta[9] and University of Guelph,[10] and from Simon Fraser University in October 2009.[11]
She has three grown-up children: Emilie, Patrick and Catherine Taman.
Legal career[edit]Canada[edit]
From 1972-73, Louise Arbour was research officer for the Law Reform Commission of Canada. She then taught at Osgoode Hall Law School, York University, first as a Lecturer (1974), then as Assistant Professor (1975), Associate Professor (1977–1987), and finally as Associate Professor and Associate Dean (1987).[citation needed] She also was Vice-President of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association until her appointment to the Supreme Court of Ontario (High Court of Justice) in 1987 and to the Court of Appeal for Ontario in 1990.
In 1995, Arbour was appointed as President of a Commission of Inquiry, under the Inquiries Act, for the purpose of investigating and reporting on events at the Prison for Women in Kingston, Ontario, following allegations by prisoners of abuse.
While on the Court of Appeal for Ontario, Arbour was one of the three judges who upheld the controversial acquittal in the R. v. Finta trail. Imre Finta was a commander of the Gendarmerie in Szeged, Hungary during the Second World War who immigrated to Canada after the war and became a citizen in 1956. Evidence was discovered suggesting he may have participated in the deportation of Jews from Hungary during the war. In 1988, he was charged with unlawful confinement, robbery, kidnapping and manslaughter of 8,617 Jews under the war crimes provisions in the Criminal Code. This landmark trial which would set Canada's response to Nazi and other War criminals in Canada. Legal opinions from Human right organizations statedthat by choosing the narrow interpretation of Canadian law, the court hadset an impossibly high standard for prosecuting war criminals in Canada.[12] [13]
The Hague[edit]
In 1996, following Justice Goldstone recommendations, Arbour was appointed as his replacement as Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda in Arusha and the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in The Hague.
The appointment, steered through the United Nations (UN) Security Council approval process by Madeleine Albright who served as the U.S. ambassador to the UN, was controversial both due to her role inthe Finta ruling and her successful challenge of Canada's rape shield in 1987, a law meant to protect rape victims.
In her new capacity she indicted then Serbian President Slobodan Miloševic for war crimes, the first time a serving head of State was called to account before an international court. Also indicted were Milan Milutinovic, President of the Republic of Serbia, Nikola Šainovic, Deputy Prime Minister of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, Dragoljub Ojdanic, Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, and Vlajko Stojiljkovic, Minister of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Serbia.[14][15]
Supreme Court of Canada[edit]
In 1999, Prime Minister Jean Chrétien appointed Arbour to the Supreme Court of Canada.[16]
Works and awards[edit]
Throughout her career, Arbour has published in the area of criminal procedure and criminal law, in both French and English. At various times, she has served as an editor for the Criminal Reports, theCanadian Rights Reporter, and the Osgoode Hall Law Journal.[citation needed]
Arbour has been awarded honorary doctorates by twenty-seven universities. In 2005, Arbour was awarded the Thomas J. Dodd Prize in International Justice and Human Rights, along with Justice Richard Goldstone, in recognition of her work on theInternational Criminal Tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda.[17]
She is also the subject of a 2005 fact-based Canadian-German made-for-television movie, entitled Hunt For Justice which follows her quest to indict Bosnian Serb war criminals. Arbour was played by Canadian actress Wendy Crewson.
On January 24, 2008, Arbour welcomed [18] the entry into force of the 2004 version of the Charter, which states:

Article 2(3) All forms of racism, Zionism and foreign occupation and domination constitute an impediment to human dignity and a major barrier to the exercise of the fundamental rights of peoples; allsuch practices must be condemned and efforts must be deployed for their elimination.[19]

Following criticisms about this statement,[20][21] Arbour distanced herself from some aspects of the charter.[22] The charter is listed in the website of her office, among texts adopted by international groups aimed at promoting and consolidating democracy. [23]
In September 2008, Arbour gave a lecture entitled "Integrating Security, Development and Human Rights" at the University of San Diego's Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice Distinguished Lecture Series.
