Around the rinks

Scotty Bowman: Is among 66 notables to receive the Order of Canada. The honor recognizes a lifetime of outstanding achievement, dedication to the community and service to the nation. Considered one of hockey's greatest coaches, Bowman won a record nine Stanley Cups behind the benches of the Montreal Canadiens, Pittsburgh Penguins and Detroit Red Wings. Bowman joins such hockey greats as Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux and Bobby Orr in the Order of Canada.

New York Rangers: Have placed veteran forward Sean Avery on waivers. The Rangers made the move Friday before their game at Florida. The Rangers could assign him to their AHL affiliate, the Connecticut Whale, if he goes unclaimed by noon Saturday. The move means Avery will not play in the Winter Classic on Monday at Philadelphia.
