Feb 18--Dick Duff

Dick Duff

During his third and final year of junior with St. Mike's Majors, Dick led the team in scoring once again with 53 points, but also made his NHL debut, joining the Toronto Maple Leafs on March 10, 1955 for the first of three games with the parent club. Later that season, the Majors beat the Regina Pats to collect the Memorial Cup for 1955. Dick led the Majors in scoring that season.
In 1955-56, the 19-year-old Duff landed a full time spot with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Duff played with Toronto, Montreal, Los Angeles, Buffalo and the New York Rangers during an 18-year career that ended in 1972. He won a total of six Stanley Cups with the Maple Leafs and the Canadiens, was a seven-time All-Star and finished his career with 283 goals and 572 points in 1,030 games. Through 114 playoff contests, Dick scored 30 goals and 49 assists
On November 13, 2006 he was inducted into Hockey Hall of Fame.

Received these items signed IP, gold paint pen card abd blue sharpie postcard. Obtained as a Mr.Sub grand opening. I thought I would get there before the 11:00 appearance but that was not necessary. I was the only one there. I got my items signed, talked to him and had free sub samples. After about 1/2 hour, someone else came in so I left. This was in 1996 so a good ten years before he was named to the HHOF.
