Tributes Pour In For The Late Tim Sassone, Called The "Dean" Of Blackhawks Beat Writers
Published March 26, 2014
BLACKHAWKS PAY RESPECTS: In Illinois, Mike Spellman notes news of Sassone's death "shook Sharp and the Blackhawks." Sharp said, "He’s been on the beat for a long time, and we know how much he cares about the Blackhawks. He was very fair, very honest. He wasn’t afraid to write both sides of the story." Blackhawks D DUNCAN KEITH added, "He always gave us a lot of respect and was always fair to us as players. He was one of the first guys I remember when I came here to Chicago" (Illinois DAILY HERALD, 3/26). In Chicago, Mark Lazerus notes the Blackhawks, who "presented Sassone with a No. 25 jersey last year to commemorate his 25th year on the beat, held a moment of silence in his honor" last night before their game with the Stars (CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, 3/26).
