I remember reading an article in the Toronto Star one time in the 1970’s about Sheldon Kannegiesser and it joked that he was the biggest name in hockey. ( I guess that was before we had the influx of players from Europe and Russia).
I laughed when I saw an article in this week’s Kitchener Record about him and the book of hockey poetry he has written. I actually had thought of naming this blog thehockeypoets but decided since there would be more prose than poetry, it didn’t make sense.
If you’re interested in Sheldon’s poem’s, check out this link in the record for more info.
