Newark, NJ – Les “Doc” Widdifield, who served the New Jersey Devils as a Western Canadian Scout for nearly 25 years, passed away Monday at the age of 86 in his hometown of Saskatoon, Sask.

“The entire New Jersey Devils organization is saddened by the loss of Les Widdifield,” said Devils’ President/CEO/General Manager Lou Lamoriello.  “Les was a caring, family man who devoted his life to his wife, children, grand-children and great grand-children.  He was part of the Devils’ family for a long time, and will be greatly missed.  Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Twyla, and the entire Widdifield family.”

Widdifield was born August 21, 1925 in Watson, Sask.  A long-time friend of former Devils’ General Manager Max McNab, he joined the organization as a scout in 1986-87.  A member of the organization for all three Stanley Cup Championships, he proudly gave his championship rings to his grandsons.

Funeral Services are taking place today at Saskatoon Funeral Home (4th Ave. & 25th St.) at 1:30 PM PT.   Condolences can be sent to mail@saskatoonfuneralhome.com.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Kidsport, the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan, or any charity of choice.
