Ray Miron

Ray Miron (born 1929) is the former owner of the new Central Hockey League, founded in 1992 by Miron and William "Bill" Levins, as well as a former National Hockey League executive, serving in the Toronto Maple Leafs organization and as General Manager of the Colorado Rockies (NHL). They founded the league under the concept of central ownership of all the teams. Miron had previously coached in the "old" Central Hockey League (1963-1984). He also was president of the league for three weeks, before leaving to accept the role of GM with the Rockies.Miron served as the president of the new league after Levin's death. He sold the league in 2000. In recognition of his importance to the league, the championship trophy, formerly known as the Levin's Cup, was renamed to the Ray Miron Cup. After the CHL merged with the competing Western Professional Hockey League, the trophy was renamed to the "Ray Miron President's Cup." In 2005, Miron was awarded the Lester Patrick Trophy by the NHL, a recognition he described as his "greatest hockey accomplishment." Today, Miron is retired and resides in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Personal life

Miron was born in 1929 in Cornwall, Ontario Canada. He played hockey growing up and played in the minor leagues. Miron has said he wasn't a strong enough skater to make it in the NHL. While working in a Canadian plant during World War II, Miron was in a mustard gas accident. The accident left much of his body covered in mustard acid, which severely burned him and left him in a hospital for months.

Miron met his wife Rowena in the 1950's. Rowena died in 2004. They have two children and four grandchildren; their son Monte Miron served as commissioner of the CHL from 1992-2000.
