I don’t know who’s gonna clean up all these yellow shirts, but it’s not gonna be me.
This Sunday’s edition of Vintage Hockey features a photo of Guy Lafleur (in the helmet in the back) celebrating a goal against the Detroit Red Wings, including Gordie Howe (on the left). Lafleur is one of the most talented guys to ever play the game of hockey, and has five Stanley Cup wins to prove it. Gordie Howe played hockey virtually forever, starting his NHL career in 1946 and ending in 1980. Howe was also a very talented guy - his name appears on the Cup four times, and he has won a plethora of other awards. However, today many people remember Howe as the namesake of the “Gordie Howe Hat Trick,” which consists of a player scoring a goal, earning an assist, and having a fight all in one game.
