It is with deepest regret that the Peterborough Petes announce the passing of Alumni member Lorne O’Donnell (1960-63).  Mr O’Donnell passed away suddenly this week following a work out in Peterborough. Lorne O’Donnell would have turned 69 next month.

Lorne O’Donnell was originally from Kingston Ontario before joining the Petes for the 1960-61 season.  He played three seasons with the Petes recording 19 goals and 44 points in 129 games.  Following his playing career with the Petes Lorne played five seasons of professional hockey in the EHL (Now known as the ECHL) where he recorded 83 goals and 221 points in 258 games.

Lorne’s son Steve worked as the teams Marketing Manager in the early 1990’s.

Visitation and Funeral arrangements have yet to be announced by Mr. O’Donnell’s family.
