R.I.P. Gump Worsley

I had to dig deep into my virtual hockey card collection for this one, and it's not even the one I wanted. Oh well...

As you can probably tell from the title of this post, Lorne "Gump" Worsley died.

The Hall of Fame goalie spent 21 seasons in the NHL beginning with the New York Rangers. He belonged to the Montreal Canadiens, the winningest team in hockey, during their last great winning streak in the 60s and 70s. In his five years with Montreal the team won four Stanley Cups. He later moved to Minnesota, where he ended his career. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1980.

He was 77.
