red kelly, 1927—2019

With yesterday’s sorry news that Red Kelly has died at the age of 91, recommended readings on his remarkable life and times would include obituaries from Richard Goldstein in The New York Times and Eric Duhatschek in The Globe and Mail. CBC has one from The Canadian Press augmented by archival video. More to follow here, too. In the meantime, from the Puckstruck archives, here’s Kelly in Leaf blue and Red Wing red, as well as a rare portrait of his wrath.

One thought on “red kelly, 1927—2019

  1. Thank you for honouring Mr. Kelly today and in the archives. Am too young to have seen him play, but can recognize his contributions as a gentleman in hockey and beyond. Thanks for your efforts in Puckstruck.
