Old School- Eddie Shore

from John Bishop at BostonBruins.com,
...But those Boston fans should always remember that it was Eddie 'The Edmonton Express" Shore who was Boston's first real superstar. Ever since Shore joined the B's in 1926; just two years after the then "Brown & Gold" took the ice as a franchise for the first time, Boston has been a place where opposing teams simply dread to play. Eddie Shore was born between Regina and Fort Qu'Appelle, Saskatchewan, Canada (legend says he entered the world in an ox cart) on November 25, 1902. Hockey historian Michael McKinley writes that Shore was "an eccentric hybrid of entertainer and philosopher, who made it to the big time from the disbanded Edmonton Eskimos of the Western Hockey League and quickly became a favourite of the raucus Boston Garden."
