A former NHL coach, Neale joined Hockey Night in Canada as an analyst in 1986, calling countless NHL games as well as two World Cups and three Olympics. He has spent the last six seasons as an analyst on Buffalo Sabres broadcasts.

Greenberg made his mark as a Philadelphia Flyers beat writer, but his 40-year writing career also includes stops at the Kansas City Star, Sports Illustrated, the Hockey News, Toronto Sun and New York Post.

Neale and Greenberg will receive their awards at a luncheon presentation in Toronto on Nov. 11.
