History will remember Paul for the first Canada-Russia Hockey series in 1972, when Canada needed a victory in each of the last 3 games to win the series.  Incredibly, Paul scored the winning goal in each of the 3 games.  The goal in the last game was  declared the greatest sports moment in the last century and Team Canada '72 was voted the Team of the Century.
Paul is a member of several Sports Halls of Fame including Canada's Sports Hall of Fame and as a motivational speaker he has addressed many of Canada's major corporations.
 
In January 1997 the Canadian Mint launched a commemorative coin depicting the Winning Goal in the 1972 series.  This is the first time a living person has been depicted on a coin, other than a sovereign.  Canada Post also introduced a stamp celebrating the moment.

Proceeds go to charity.
