Here's the 2011 STL Amateur Hockey HOF inductees. Garry Unger was the Spirit Award inductee this year. Make sure and check out Garry's induction video where he tells the story about fighting Noel Picard and Bobby Plager when he was with Detroit. He also takes time to talk about Gasser in his speech and that fateful day, you can hear a pin drop in that room as he remembers Bob's passing.
Tom Glen, we knew him as Tommy, the rink guard from Winterland and the great Jr, B forward for the Comets and Blazers. Tommy was one of my inspirations to learn to play hockey and ice skate. He was one of the older kids that us rink rats all looked up to and wanted to be like. Now he's passing his love for the game on to the new wave of kids in St. Louis.
Congrats Tommy, ya made us all proud dude.
For a peek back at those times, check out this pic and the lid. Make sure and read the comments about the brawls at Winterland in the penalty box and stands. LOL
Charlie Eberle. It was because of Charlie bringing Jr. B hockey to STL that many of us were able to take that step up to the next level of hockey. I left for the USAF after playing only one year Jr. B and missed the first Jr. B tourney in STL. Thank you Charlie for all that you did for us kids.
