It has been 26 years and I still remember how stunned I was when I got the call. It was like I lost a family member. He was such a wonder person and I had the pleasure to have talked to him while I was working at Kings Grant.He was such a down to earth guy. I was a season ticket holder at the time and when we went to the game where they had the memorial service for Pelle the ticket by chance had Pelle on it. They did not tear the tickets just marked the back. There were many tears shed that night. He is still my second favorite goalie behind Bernie. I really felt that if he had not passed away we could have won Lord Stanley. How many times? Who knows.
I to would like to see 31 up there.

RIP PELLE

I just watched the video and words cannot do it any justice.
