Barry Melrose is considered by some as the face of the NHL.  During Melrose's career he has been a hockey player, a hockey coach, and is currently a commentator on the NHL for ESPN and ABC. 

Melrose began his hockey career as a defenseman in the WCHL with the Kamloops Chiefs in 1974.  During his playing career, he was also a part of the Cincinnati Stingers of the WHA, the Winnipeg Jets, the Toronto Maple Leafs, and the Detroit Red Wings.

Following his playing career, however, Melrose took to coaching. His first coaching position was with the Medicine Hat Tigers and then the Seattle Thunderbirds of the WHL. In 1989, Melrose was hired to coach his old team, the Adirondack Red Wings. He successfully led the minor league franchise to a Calder Cup victory over the St. John's Maple Leafs in the 1991-92 season.

Following that season, Melrose was hired to be the coach of the NHL's Los Angeles Kings. Melrose led the team to the Stanley Cup Finals but eventually lost to the Montreal Canadiens. During that time, Melrose was called "the greatest coach I ever played for" by Gretzky.

After his coaching stint, Melrose was hired to be a hockey commentator with cable sports network ESPN.  Melrose has also been seen on SportsCenter and ESPNEWS. 

Melrose is also a part owner of the Adirondack Frostbite.  He currently resides in Queensbury, New York.
