Whitey Stapleton 1940-2020

An inevitable side effect of growing older is the loss of the heroes of our youth.  On April 8 Pat Stapleton died.  Along with greats like Hull and Mikita my first memories of the Chicago Blackhawks include Whitey.

  1. Not familiar with Stapleton. Played way before I started following hockey in the early 90's. But it's pretty darn cool to see that he was known for his overall hustle on the back of his 71/72 Topps card. I think if I was a professional athlete... that would be one of best complements I could receive from a card company. Rest in peace Mr. Stapleton.
