“Janet and I are very saddened to learn of Joey Moss’s death. Joey was not only a facility in Edmonton’s locker room, but also a man I truly considered a friend – a friendship that lasted more than 35 years.

Joey was not only the spirit of our team, but also of the spirit of our community. We will miss Joey, and you will always live through all the memories you have given so many people. Our thoughts revolve around all of Joey’s loved ones.

Joey, once Euler, always Euler – you will always be him. “
