Bird Dog was a good hockey guy... long after the NHL ..long after the St. John's Leafs ...long after the coaching in the Avalon East was done you could find him along the boards at a senior game. It is of interest he decided to make Newfoundland his post hockey home. He sure knew the game. I noticed on-line someone credited him with being the worst NHL fighter of all time but I think he won his share. A marvelous sense of "the ice" . Could break out of the defensive zone with a soft pass . It is almost the sort of thing you can't teach.
Hockey is poorer with his passing.

Another classy post, Hockey Eyes.

I remember the time he played for the SJmapleleafs. Must have been 3 seasons perhaps and, of course, coaching in Senior hockey. Indeed he will be missed.
