- Gazette sports columnist Red Fisher remembers his friend, Canadiens legend Dickie Moore.
Here is a true gem from our Facebook group : member Jan McConnell's clipping from the early 40s of Richard ("Dickie") Moore with Dave Kerr, Henry Dubiel and the rest of the record-breaking PE Royals. If you have first names and information about the players, please send it to us via the Contact Us page.
The Society has several photos in its archives taken at the beginning of Dickie Moore's career when the Park Extension Amateur Athletic Association (PEAAA) gave him a reception at the old Legion Hall when he returned to Montreal shortly after winning the 1956 NHL goal scoring championship.
Here are three photos that tell the story of that night.
