Fred Fox and Brother Terry Recollections

Back in 1972, Terry was 14 years old and a big hockey fan. While we didn’t play ice hockey, we did enjoy road hockey games. Terry was such a huge fan of both Boston and Toronto. During the Series he cheered for Frank and Peter Mahovlich.

At that time, we both attended Mary Hill Junior High School in Port Coquitlam, BC. I remember the whole school was excited and I watched the game on a tv in the gymnasium. Of course, everyone celebrated when Henderson scored the winner.

We returned home from school that day excited and I remember we talked about the game with Dad.

Crosby’s goal for the gold medal game brought back fond memories of the Paul Henderson goal.
