Don Cherry has highest praise for the late Jean Béliveau

Don Cherry took to Twitter to share his memories of the late Jean Béliveau. In his first public comments about No. 4's recent passing, the iconic sports broadcaster recalled Béliveau's class. 

According to Cherry, Béliveau's class extended far beyond the ice. Who would Don send to represent Canada at the United Nations? None other than Mr. Béliveau.
