Jake the Snake is a Leaf!

This week’s 50 Years Ago in Hockey Podcast is now available!
In this week’s show, we talk about NHL training camps getting into full swing, with one of the NHL’s all-time great goalies making his first appearance with the Maple Leafs; we learn about a young NHL superstar suffering a significant injury just before reporting to camp, and the Montreal Canadiens newest innovation – the assistant coach – is finally revealed, and it’s not anyone whose name was on the radar. Plus much, much more!

The photo shown is from Jacques initial appearance at the Toronto training camp. The mask in his right hand is the new model he had produced during the past off-season, while the one in his left is what Jacques said was the first mask he used…that one never saw game play in the NHL but was used in practice every day.
