A reader gave me a heads-up about the death of Harvey Bennett.
Who was Bennett?
A legend in the admittedly small world of Rhode Island hockey (login info.).
Bennett was a goalie, making his mark for the AHL Rhode Island Reds. After the AHL, he focused on youth hockey.
My reader said five of Bennett’s sons played in the NHL. I can’t confirm that, since Bennett is a common name, but hockeyDB.com seems to back the idea.
Speaking of old time hockey, Jay Greenberg from the New York Post and The Hockey News went back to his home town of Johnstown to check out the ECHL’s Chiefs, made famous in the movie SLAP SHOT.
Basically, Greenberg misses hockey. And maybe his childhood.
And the ECHL never misses an opportunity to send out a press release.
