Mine was going to the Corral to watch the Stampeders play. There was a young kid on that team by the name of Douglas Barkley, who would go on to play in the NHL and later become the color man on Flames radio broadcasts. Didn't know the importance of the game, but it instilled a passion for the game in me that will stay with me forever.
Not my first hockey memory, but I'm hoping someone else will remember this as everyone I've talked to don't seem to remember.
Wayne Greztky playing for the Kings was about to go on a break away. He skated backwards just before entering the offensive zone to see if anybody was tailing him and got caught offside because his body entered the zone before the puck. Funny thing is, nobody was even in the screen that's how much of a jump he had on the opposition. Plus he could skate so fast.
