As a player, he won the Stanley Cup 10 times, and as an executive he was part of another seven championship teams, the most Stanley Cup victories by an individual to date. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1972.

Nov 16

Thought I had Josh Green and had him scheduled in here. Turns out I had Josh Holden. So a capable replacement is
Dave Forbes

Signed as a free agent in 1973 by the Boston Bruins.
Forbes was charged with aggravated assault in 1975 after butt-ending Henry Boucha's eye socket in a game against the Minnesota North Stars. The trial received much publicity as it was highly unusual for an athlete to face criminal charges for actions taken in the course of competition. The trial ended with the jury unable to reach a decision and the charges were not refiled. Coincidentally, I also have Henry Boucha's autograph.

Received these blue ink signed cards TTM.

Nov 17
Dennis Maruk

Selected by California Seals round 2 #21 overall 1975 NHL Amateur Draft
Selected by Cleveland Crusaders round 5 #65 overall 1975 WHA Amateur Draft
Like any small man in a big-man's game, Dennis Maruk has had to contend with skeptics about his business of dazzling all parties concerned with his spectacular play.
In 888 NHL games, he scored 356 goals and had 522 assists. He was also one of my choices for best moustache in NHL history. Yep, that fu manchu was pretty awesome.
