Say what? Never heard this one before BP. He was born in 42 so your suggesting he worked in a steel mill every summer until 1972 after winning 2 SC's with Boston? I know his first job was with Algoma Steel up there in the Soo but how is that even remotely possible, the leagues then leading scorer by 72, Captain of the Bruins, leading scorer of the league by then and for several years.... are you sure your not thinking he mightve returned the Soo from his stints in the minors & maybe for a few seasons with Chicago earlier on? That would make sense. But through til 72? Like he went from Algoma Steel to Team Canada? I dont think so Big Guy.
