I have fond memories of listening to hockey that date back to when I was 8 or 9 listening to Hockey Night in Canada and Foster Hewitt. Years later, I worked for the Canadian Press covering the Quebec Senior Hockey league and the Montreal Royals. In 1949, I had the great opportunity to interview Jackie Robinson, who at that time played for the Royals.
I’ll never forget the ’72 Series. The Soviets gave us a real run for the money and played a clean team oriented style of hockey.
The final game I watched at home with my wife and two kids in Montreal. It was one of the best games I saw in all my years.
