The Carleton Ravens men’s hockey team and the Department of Recreation and Athletics will recognize Richard Bue with a special presentation before the team’s January 19th game against the York Lions.
A beloved member of the Carleton community, Richard’s time at Carleton Athletics has spanned over three decades seeing him hold important staff roles and playing a vital role in the support and development of Carleton student-athletes.
Richard is most well-known for his time as the video coach of the men’s hockey team. Having joined the team in their inaugural season, Richard debuted as the team’s equipment manager in 2006-07 before moving to the coaching staff in 2012-13.
However, Richard’s time in Carleton Athletics began at just 15 years old as the assistant equipment manager for Ravens football. Working alongside Wayne ‘The Colonel’ Baird, Richard would begin a journey that saw him serve in roles in the Tuck Shop and Carleton Camps, among many others in the department. A commerce grad, Richard and Baird coached the Ravens women’s hockey club team from 2000-2003, helping to lay the foundation for today’s program.
Richard has remained a staple in the Carleton community even after departing in 2016 to join the Winnipeg Jets organization as the Video Coach for the AHL’s Manitoba Moose. Today, he can regularly be seen at Ravens games, continuing to support the hockey programs and all Ravens varsity teams. Richard has been a true community builder, his impact has expanded far beyond the Ice House, creating friendships and making a positive impact on all members of the community.
Richard’s positive attitude despite the challenges of life with cancer is a shining example of perseverance to members of the Carleton community. His strength through his journey and others-first approach to life has continued to make him a role model for staff, student-athletes and all members of the Carleton community who have been fortunate enough to meet him.
Fans are encouraged to arrive early, with the ceremony beginning at 7:00 p.m. Tickets for next weekend’s game against the Lions are on sale now at GoRavens.ca/Tickets.
