AHLs 80 years filled with legendary stories

AHLs 80 years filled with legendary stories

http://www.officialpredatorsstore.com/authentic-21-derek-roy-jersey.html When it comes to legendary sports tales, no other league can compete with the American Hockey League. The AHL is celebrating its 80th anniversary this season, and there is an endless supply of anecdotes -- you know, the "Slap Shot" stories -- to mark the milestone. "It's hard to come up with only one," joked AHL president and CEO Dave Andrews, who has been with the league for 22 years. "There is a bunch. There have been a lot of great times. I've been really lucky. I would have never imagined I would have been in this job this long. It's been good. The anecdotes, I wouldn't even know where to start." Here's one that reached legendary status: Jiri Tlusty Youth Jersey During the 1947-48 season, the Indianapolis Capitals' Lloyd "Red" Doran viciously swung his stick at the head of the Providence Reds' Chuck Scherza, who needed 17 stitches to repair the damage. Every time the teams played after that, whether in Indy or Providence, Doran never played, the Capitals protecting their player from retribution. Later, when the Reds were playing in Indianapolis, Scherza was walking down the street before the game when he spotted Doran in a restaurant. Scherza walked in and, without saying a word, Scherza punched Doran in the face, knocking him off his chair. As Scherza walked out, legend has it someone yelled, "He probably deserved it!" Danilo Gallinari Blue Jersey Two-time Stanley Cup winner and current Florida Panthers forward Shawn Thornton spent parts of 10 seasons in the AHL. One of his all-time favorite teammates was Greg Smyth, better known as "Bird Dog." "His last year [1998-99], he played only 40 games because I'm pretty sure he was suspended for the other 40," said Thornton, 38. "He was the craziest guy I have ever played with my whole life." One day before a game in Fredericton, the Canadiens (the affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens) were holding their usual morning skate. Then-coach Michel Therrien decided to stay on the ice a bit longer than their allotted time. Smyth, who recorded 1,970 penalty minutes in 361 career AHL games, felt the Canadiens were out of line. "He just left the room and we thought he was going to talk with our coach or something, and all we hear is loud bangs and chaos," Thornton said. "He comes walking back in five minutes later and said, 'The ice will be ready in a second, guys.' Come to find out, he went on the ice with just his lower gear and skates on and just started taking slap shots at their whole coaching staff and extra players." http://www.authenticcelticsstore.com/authentic-7-jared-sullinger-jersey.html Fredericton's tough guys at the time -- Terry Ryan and Dave Morissette -- were in the locker room when they heard the commotion and came running out to the bench. "[Smyth] started firing slappers at those guys and they're ducking like they're getting shot at," Thornton said. "Pucks were flying all over the place. It was chaos. But they cleared out and we had the ice in 10 minutes and almost on time."
