Teach him to steal someone's na...
Um, that's a shame, and I was nowhere near the place. (Whistles, looks around)
I'm surprised this doesn't happen more often to NHL players who don't wear a mask. A 100mph puck to the face could be fatal.
After all, he is a true Canadian.
Alan, that's what ya get for all those years of "Growing Pains".
Wow, according to the article, he lost five teens! Tragic!
Is it true that in the old days, NHL goalies did not wear facemasks? You'd have to be insane to do that!
that is true. Although players had alot more respect for the goalies and did not shoot high very often.
Yep, but that was also in the days before the slapshot was refined as a weapon. Sit in front of Bobby Hull winding up and you'd don a mask also. Hull was measured at 118 mph with old wooden stick technology. Todays fastest shots are in the 100-105 range (Al McInnis as an example). Plus, Hull used to be able to hurt goalies at will. Teammates say he'd waste a shot in the beginning of the game just to clang a goalie off the melon. Kept them wary and mostly out of his way for the rest of the game. MOF, I saw Gerry Cheevers get out of the way and "'ole" the puck into the net in a laugher Boston vs. Chicago game in the early 70's. Of course Boston was up by 5 or 6 at the time.
I think that its funny with a guy like Alan, who has a long list of TV and film roles, he gets reffered to as "Kirk Cameron's dad on Growing Pains".
