Dead at 88.

I’m not much of a hockey fan, but you gotta hand it to a guy who started playing professional hockey in 1946 and stopped in 1980.  Yup, that’s a span of 34 years, although he actually played 26 seasons.  And in 21 of them, he was the high scorer in the NHL.

(He actually played for one day in the 1990s with the Detroit Vipers — a one-day contract — so that he can claim to have played professional hockey for six decades).
