In Episode 41 of the Pro Hockey Alumni Podcast, we discuss, the rich tradition of professional hockey in Rhode Island as we prepare for the 19th annual Rhode Island Reds Reunion on August 4, 2019
More than two dozen former Providence Reds and other hockey luminaries are expected to attend the event at Goddard State Park in Warwick, RI. Ticket Info is on the show notes and also mentioned in the show.
Among those expected to attend and receive special awards are Boston Bruins Alumni Rick Middleton, Ross Brooks and RI native Noel Acciari.
Today, we talk with Buster Clegg, a fixture in RI hockey for over 50 years and the President of the RI Reds Heritage Society. We’ll discuss the glory days of pro hockey in the old R. I. Auditorium and such future NHL greats as Ed Giacomin, Johnny Bower, Orland Kurtenbach and many more.
We’ll also have funny anecdotes from Rick Middleton on his memorable 1973-74 season in Providence.
