Eddie Shack photo

Recommended Posts

I thought I had accidentally discovered the back story of this iconic Eddie Shack photo:

Alas, the moment starting at 2:25 of the video is not The Moment. Apparently that's what Shack did — he skated up behind guys and tried jump into, onto or around them.

I loved those early years.  Those teams were fun.  

 

Shack was a good player for us and trading him for Rene Robert was even better.

Shack was something else.  He was also barely literate.

A lot of the early players were like that. They left home at an early age and there were few rules and less supervision. And the owners loved it. Made it easy to keep them in line before guys like Ted Lindsay and others came along.

Saw him jump out of the penalty box, butt first, in order to stop a break up ice by a forward with a full head of steam!
