JOHN THERIAULT PRESENTS THE CHAPLEAU INTERMEDIATE "A" HUSKIES - A TEAM FOR ALL SEASONS
John Theriault kindly provided the photos you see here that capture part of what life was like with them during those years.
They were an integral part of my life, and I hope as you look at the photos, you will have fond memories of "The Intermediates" --- the team for all seasons!
Let me just add that while I am most closely associated with the team, it was Doug Prusky, who was either coaching or managing the team, as we changed roles at times, that brought them their greatest on ice success.
I am going to leave it to you to identify the players -- at least for the most part!
When I was in first year at Wilfrid Laurier University in 1960, I was the organizer with some of my buddies of a bed push from London to Waterloo. We set a world record
The best we could do in Chapleau was have bed races down main street. I got to ride on one bed and the guys made me wear a helmet.
Once again to John Theriault, thanks for the memories and for letting me share your photos here.
I just can't resist closing with a comment Jamie Doyle made to me, "Chief, we were a real good hockey team, and would have been even better if we had ever had a practice with everyone there." Indeed Jamie, and that's a story for another day.
