I'm sort of surprised that the actual NHL players (at least the ones that were young) didn't get the same treatment from fans at the time. I mean, lots of young guys skated for the Habs during the war, and I've never heard anything about them being booed by fans. Maybe it's something about Quebec that I just don't understand, but considering that France was occupied, one would think the Quebecois would be even more interested in the war than the average Canadian.
He was given some sort of job as a physical training instructor.
