Sad news to pass along your way tonight: New York Ranger Alf Pike has died at the age of 1991.
Alf Pike has one of the game’s all time great nicknames: The Embalmer.
Pike did not earn his nickname by being one of the game’s great villains like you might expect. No, he came about his handle much more innocently and literally - he was a licensed mortician.
