Introductions, Please…. THW’s Hockey History Section

“Hello, Canada, and hockey fans in the United States, and Newfoundland….” The voice of a legend reaching out from the past, Foster Hewitt’s emblematic sign-on bubbles up sentiment even in those who never heard him call a game. Hockey’s history remains evocative to young and old alike: Bobby Orr’s mid-air celebration, the Rocket’s burning eyes, Dryden’s cucumber-cool pose, Gretzky’s sweater-tuck, these are just a few iconic images which have shaped the game we know today.
