A Gump I Will Miss

By Wyatt Earp | January 28, 2007

An NHL legend has passed away.

MONTREAL (AP) — Gump Worsley, the Hall of Fame goalie who didn’t wear a mask until the final season of his 21-year NHL career, has died. He was 77.

Worsley, who died Friday at his home in Beloeil, had a heart attack Monday, The Montreal Gazette said Saturday night.

The 5-foot-7 Worsley began his NHL career in 1952-53, winning the Calder Trophy as the rookie of the year with the New York Rangers. He helped his hometown Montreal Canadiens win four Stanley Cup titles in a five-year span and finished his career with the Minnesota North Stars in 1973-74 — playing only his final six games with a mask.

Playing goalie without a mask. That takes some major wontons.
