All about Spector


Our pal Lyle (Spector) Richardson had a front-page ode penned to him by Charlottetown's own The Guardian newspaper today:
Richardson, a native of Carleton, N.S., began following hockey as a child, mesmerized by Boston Bruins legend Bobby Orr. He switched allegiances in 1971 when another legend, goaltender Ken Dryden, debuted with the Montreal Canadiens.

Richardson joined the military in 1980, living in towns and cities from one end of Canada (and Alaska) to the other. He served on two Canadian navy ships. He was stationed on the HMCS Terra Nova and Huron during the first Persian Gulf War.
PEI's biggest hockey celeb (outside of Brad Richards), to be sure.

As much as I like Lyle's stuff, I bet he's not as well known as Forbes Kennedy, Doug MacLean, Gerard Gallant or Rick Vaive- you know- those othe PEI hockey celebrities.
