Legends of Hockey - Time Capsule - the 60s - Great Players: Duf-Geo
Dick Duff One of more than 150 graduates of the St. Mike's Majors to go on to the NHL, Duff won two Cups with the Leafs in the '60s and four more with Montreal. A hard-nosed, two-way left winger, Duff never won a major individual trophy despite his many team successes.
Ron Ellis Up and down his wing he skated with Toronto, year after year scoring 20 goals and adopting Ace Bailey's retired number 6 sweater, the last Leaf to wear that number. Ellis was a member of Toronto's '67 Cup team and later Team Canada's '72 Summit Series team. He ended his NHL career in 1981 with 332 goals.
Phil Esposito Tidbit: Early in his career weight problems almost kept Phil out of the league for good, but his scoring ability, particularly from the slot, was too exceptional to ignore. Complete Honoured Member Bio.
Anatoli Firsov One of the great early Soviet forwards, Firsov was named a Directorate Award winner at the World Championships three times in five years (1967, '68, '71) and led the Worlds in scoring three consecutive years ('67-'69).
Bill Gadsby Statline: Gadsby has the distinction of having played 1,248 career games without ever winning the Stanley Cup. Complete Honoured Member Bio.
Bernie Geoffrion Statline: "Boom Boom" brought widespread popularity to the use of the slapshot, and in 1960-61 became the first man since Maurice Richard to score 50 goals in one season. Complete Honoured Member Bio.
