Dead Guy

“Period’s over… outta my way.
As long as the Zamboni’s on the ice,
I’ve got a date with flavor country.”

Guy LaFleur
NHL player, French Canadian, Hab.
September 20, 1951 – April 22, 2022.
Aged 70 years.

Most recognized for: Widely considered to be one of the best 100 players of all time, Guy was the first in NHL history to score at least 50 goals and 100 points in six consecutive seasons… and the fastest player (at the time) to reach 1,000 points. “The Blonde Demon” refused to wear a helmet and loved to rip cigs in the locker room. Though his noggin could handle the abuse, his lungs didn’t fare so well.
