i had read that Tim Horton had terrible eyesight but wouldn't play with glasses.
Ya thats right. Actually blind as a bat out there, his defensive partners angling players into Tims tracks where he could smother them against the boards. Series of stick taps & shouted instructions. Wore big thick lensed horn rimmed glasses; nickname was Clark Kent. ... Al Arbour as mentioned, and Tony Esposito, though he wore contacts most of the time. Nightmare when one would pop out.
