Was that the game with the metal men who, no matter how bad they were getting beat, still had that silly smile painted on their face?

I am Mikey's youngest daughter, and I think it is so neat to see these stories/comments about my dad. When I was about 8 or 9 years old we use to have a pond behind our cabin at Emma Lake, Sk that dad always cleared so we could skate and one year he put on his skates and came out with us, and I remember thinking... WOW Dad can skate.. cool... I guess all the hockey trophies didn't really mean a lot to me at that young of an age.. I was too young to understand. I am thrilled to hear that he is/was remembered so fondly. If anyone has any other stories or pictures of dad from "way back then" I would love to hear from you.

Sincerest regards,
