The great hockey trailblazer Fred Saskamoose played for the New Westminster Royals in '53-54.

Fred is now 86 years old and is currently in a Saskatchewan hospital battling covid.

for the record, Micky believes in banners in stadiums but not numbers retired permanently as a show of great respect.

I watched Gassoff play his last WCHL (WHL) season in Kamloops where he scored goals and fought the likes of Harold Phillipov and Kim Klackson. He used to show up all the time to Canucks training camp overweight, which hurt his skating. He was never a good skater and coming in overweight slowed him even more. He never showed the scoring or even the toughness with the Canucks he showed in the juniors or the minors.

No. 11, Ted McAskill was the player the Canucks brought in the season before to fight Portland's Connie Madigan. Faux tough guy Don Cherry was scared shitless of Madigan.

@ mr perfect Bob Gassoff was the tough brother. Kenny, Brad and Wayne...... not so much. They lived off Bob’s rep. I have a few relatives in Quesnel

No, Brad wasn't as tough as Bob, no one was. Tiger Williams rated Bob Gassoff as the toughest player he ever fought, tougher than Clark Gillies. Ken Gassoff was probably the most offensively talented of the bunch but not a high PIM player. I've heard Gary Gassoff was nuts, whether he could fight or not I don't know because I never saw him play. I saw Brad play with the Kamloops Chiefs because that's where I was living at the time. I saw him fight quite a few times and he could more than handle himself. The WCHL had a lot of toughness in the mid '70s. Dave Semenko, Archie Henderson, Bryan Maxwell, Eric Sanderson, Kim Clackson, Harold Phillipov who was Canucks property in 1980 and was left to rot in the minors. The toughest of them all was Barry Beck. I would rate Brad Gassoff in the Ron Delorme tier of enforcers.

Yeah Cherry idolized McCaskill. Don wasn't that tough himself but he really looked up to the genuine tough guys and McCaskill was definitely tough. Ted Taylor would have had no problem with fighting Madigan either.
