Yeah, it was something ridiculous like 7 or 8 feet long, if I remember correctly.
The history of the ice hockey stick has seen regulations in length. Ernie “Moose” Johnson, an All-Star winger and defenseman, supposedly used a hockey stick that was 75 inches long. Hockey sticks that were too long became interference in the rink. During the 1927-28 hockey season, the National Hockey League (NHL) made a new rule, requiring all sticks to be 63 inches in length or shorter.
How about players who were less famous than their equipment?
Gary "The Cobra" Simmons will perhaps be best remember for his cobra mask, rather than his play. Playing for the Golden Seals, Barons and miserable late-'70s Kings doesn't lend well to being remembered for personal achievements...
