    I had thought this occurred a few years earlier, but then obviously I am wrong.

    The Canadians played The Sabres this night in Montreal, and wore their then "Road Reds", while Buffalo wore their "Home Whites"

    Aurele Joliat, who would have been 84 at this time had just been announced. He came skating out on to the ice wearing a cap.

    He got caught up in the moment, and was moving well for an 84 year old man, but didn't see the carpet runner until it was too late, and wiped out on it.

    Buffalo Sabres Ric Seiling offered his hand to help Aurele up, but Aurele had too much pride, and got back up on his own, and dusted himself off.

    The utter joy Joliat displayed when coming out for one last hurrah was touching. The smile, the cap, and doffing of the cap, the crowds ovation, it was a magic moment. It's a shame such a legend took that fall - it wasn't meant to happen.

    Fate can be cruel at times.

    Edit, it wasn't Ric Seiling and he had no cigar. Wondering if I'm confusing two different events.
    Anyhow, thanks Robert Gordon Orr!

    Interesting how Joliat described the hockey of the early 1960's so much faster than the hockey of the 1930's. The evolution of the rules and the equipment more than the athlete, in my opinion. Also interesting how there seemed to be a debate about the ramifications of taking the violence out of hockey even back then. Seems to be a debate that has always existed and will never go away.

    7C07A8B0-89A7-4D39-A66B-526D314987AF.jpeg Here’s the story: 1952, Korean War, members of two Canadian battalions: the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry (PPCLI) and the Royal 22nd Regiment (R22R) turned the frozen river into an ice rink for a hockey match. The glacial winter air didn’t stop the soldiers’ passion for their sport. The match took place “in the sound of the heavy guns of nearby U.S. Army artillery”, just a short distance from the front lines of the struggle against Communist forces.”
