Podcast #50 - The '74 Summit Series, NHL training Camp Stories, NYR vs. Boston Bruins Alumni Classic
Welcome to Episode 50 of the Pro Hockey Alumni Podcast.
This is a "Topic" Episode featuring many of our previous guests.
First, we’’ll celebrate the 45th anniversary of “The Forgotten Summit” — the 8-game 1974 Summit Series battle between the best of Team Canada (i.e. Team WHA) and the Soviet Union. Rick Smith played defense for Team Canada ’74 and he provides unique insights into this overlooked super series that featured the likes of Bobby Hull, Gordie Howe, Vladislav Tretiak, Valerie Kharlamov and many of hockey’s all time greatest legends.
Next, NHL training camp is well underway, so we’ll talk to several of our former guests — Rick Middleton, Blake Dunlop, Wayne Babych, Morris Lukowich, Rick Smith and Phil Bourque — about their first NHL training camp experience.
Finally we’ll conclude with a look at a major NHL Alumni event we’ll be involved with: the NY Rangers Alumni vs. Boston Bruins Alumni doubleheader on October 26 and 27, 2019.
