Former Montreal Canadiens player John Ferguson is to undergo radical surgery on Thursday in London, Ont., less than three weeks after discovering he has prostate cancer, writes the Montreal Gazette's Red Fisher. Ferguson, now a special consultant with the San Jose Sharks, had gone for a routine physical exam before the Sharks training camp. As his 67th birthday neared, he felt great and had no reason to suspect anything was wrong. But six days later his doctor in Windsor informed him that his biopsy had turned up cancer.
I have had the pleasure of meeting him a few times, both during his playing career and about two years ago at the JLA. Very nice guy and my thoughts are with him.
