the nokomis dandy

Fulll Wool: Born on a Tuesday of today’s date in 1918 in Nokomis, Saskatchewan, Elmer Lach centred Montreal’s famous Punch Line, when he was healthy, skating between Toe Blake and Maurice Richard. He’s pictured here (in glorious woolens) in October of 1945. Lach died in April of 2015 at the age of 97. (Image: Fonds La Presse, BAnQ Vieux-Montréal)

One thought on “the nokomis dandy

  1. Great playmaker and Canadian citizen. Rocket admired him greatly. Elmer was one of Rockets pall bearers. Both in heaven now.
