Former referee Don Koharski ran a sports type complex. It had batting cages and as mini rink. As a perk to me, it also sold sports cards. He occasionally had NHL players appear to sign autographs. This blue sharpie sig was obtained IP.
Here is another article from the archives of the local newspaper. Wonder if any programs or autographs are still out there.
Imagine sitting down to dinner with Jesse Owens, Roy Campanella and Rocky Marciano.

Even though the Nordiques scored again, it was all Montreal as they took the game 5-3 and the series.
The rest of t he final tally.
252 PIM and 10 ejections.
If you've never seen it, it's something to see. And if you've seen it before, it's memory time.
Watch the action here.

Steve Larmer played in his 800th consecutive game, when the Blackhawks played their season finale at St. Louis (losing 5-3). The milestone left Larmer third on the NHL's all time list behind Doug Jarvis (964) and Garry Unger (914).
Blue ink signed cards. The Larmer and Unger were IP at the NHL Slo-Pitch tournament in Niagara Falls in the 80’s. The Jarvis was obtained by my brother at a wedding he was a guest at. He told me before he went so I gave him some cards to get signed. Thus the personalization on this one.

Goaltender Curtis Joseph recorded his 9th career playoff shutout when the Maple Leafs won 2-1 over the visiting Ottawa Senators in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarter-Finals.
Black sharpie marker IP. Obtained at Copps Coliseum when Leafs held training camp there. Got as he was leaving the car rental office in the mall there. He was going out for some golf. Something like my Maple Leafs are getting ready to do after ending the season with another loss, 1-0 to Ottawa.

I’m going to try another posting theme on this blog. A few years ago, I tried to post an autograph from my collection for a player celebrating a birthday on said date. This wasn’t a planned collection so I thought I did pretty good. I had 289 out of 366 days. Now in a similar vein, I am going to do a This Day in NHL History. I started it last night with Wayne Connelly. All the autographs are from my collection and obtained IP and through TTM (majority during the 80”s). So we’ll see if I can keep up posting and somehow have something to post.
