The Hockey News strips "man of the year" award from disgraced Graham James

The Hockey News has stripped an award from twice-convicted pedophile Graham James and he has returned the plaque he was awarded as "man of the year" at an awards luncheon in June 1989. At the time, he was riding high as a junior hockey coach. According to a Canadian Press story Hockey News columnist Ken Campbell said the award was revoked in December when James plead guilty to his latest sex charges. He was sentenced last week to two years for sexual assaults on retired NHL star Theo Fleury and his cousin Todd Holt when they played junior hockey in the 1980s and '90s.
Apparently James approached a longtime NHL scout and asked him to return the plaque to the magazine.
