NHL Hall of Fame goaltender Worsley passes away at age 77


A disappointingly perfunctory obituary of one of the league’s great characters, goalie Gump Worsley, by another of its great characters, sports writer Red Fisher. Fisher’s a sportswriting legend; he’s still telling it like it is fifty years after his first game – the infamous night that started the Richard riot. A better summation of Worsley wit is available at his Wikipedia entry.
