Lorieau, 71, passed away at the Norwood Centre Hospice surrounded by his daughters, grandchildren and extended family members.

    I went to a lot of the 2006 playoff games and still get chills to this day thinking about the pre game anthems. Loudest I’ve ever heard the building. RIP Pual.

    Game 6 of the 2006 Stanley Cup Finals I sang “Oh Canda” at the top of my lungs. I was never more proud to be an Edmontonian, an Oiler fan, or a Canadian. God bless you Paul Lorieau.
