Russ is a remarkable talent and we are thrilled that he's been recognized by the Canadian sports community with this honour," said Stewart Johnston, President, TSN.

"For many Canadians the name Howard is synonymous with curling and Russ continues to be one its greatest ambassadors.

The national and world championships, an Olympic gold medal, and now induction to Canada's Sports Hall of Fame only confirm what we already knew – Russ Howard is a true legend of the game," said Vic Rauter, broadcaster, TSN.
