July 4--Pat Stapleton

Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday in the USA commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence  on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the kingdom of Great Britain.

Happy birthday to my neighbours to the south.
Pat Stapleton

Stapleton had signed with the Chicago Blackhawks, but was claimed by the Boston Bruins in the intra-league draft in June 1961.
Pat teamed with Bill White in Chicago to form one of the premier defense partnerships in the NHL. The Hawks won 4 consecutive West Division championships with Pat and Bill anchoring the blueline – Pat the offensive player and Bill the stay-at-home man. Pat topped out at 54 point in the 1966-67 season, a great offensive output for that era. He was a Second Team All Star three times in 1966, 1971 and 1972.
Whitey Stapleton left hockey in 1978 after scoring 337 points in the NHL and 238 in the WHA.
