Looking For His Name On The Cup

from Red Fisher of the Montreal Gazette,

Remember Don Awrey, who played 128 of his 979 NHL games with the Canadiens?...

I mention Awrey now because he was on the telephone several days ago inquiring how to go about what he termed to “right a wrong.” What was wrong was that even though he appeared in most of the regular-season games during the Canadiens’ first of four consecutive Stanley Cups in 1975-76, he wasn’t dressed in the playoffs because of a knee injury. Result: the next time you read the names on the Cup for that year, you won’t find Awrey’s name on it because league rules at the time called for a player to appear in at least one playoff game in order to have his name on it.
