The Well-Dressed Goalie

Today's subject is Frank Brimsek. Honestly I had no idea who he was.  Hadn't heard his name before.  Yes, that will elicit boos and hisses from the hockey fans.  I can live with that.  He was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1966.   Many of you weren't even born yet, so back off.   Frank played most of his career with the Boston Bruins.

I was doing some research on the "Bloomer Girls" baseball team and stumbled across this filler photo from 1940.

The times have changed.


  1. Boo! Hiss!

    really though, great pic. Off the top of my head, it's around $3500-$4000 to equip a tender nowadays....

  2. Boo! Hiss! By the way, Brimsek's nickname was "Mr. Zero." Not that you care...nice picture, though. Great find.
