To mark the 40th anniversary of the Summit Series between Canada and the Soviet Union Red Fisher is writing an eight-part feature series to run in The Gazette during the month of September looking back on each of the eight games.
You can also download The Gazette’s free e-book, featuring Summit Series game stories from Montreal hockey legends Fisher and Ted Blackman, plus classic illustrations from The Gazette’s award-winning cartoonist, Aislin. Go to hockeyinsideout.com/summit-ebook for details.
The first part of Red’s feature series on Game 1 was published on Sept. 1, with other stories to be published on the same dates as the games were played in 1972: Sept. 4, 6 and 8 in Canada and Sept. 22, 24, 26 and 28 in the Soviet Union. You can follow the series by going to montrealgazette.com/summitseries.
The Gazette will also be publishing readers’ Summit Series memories. Email your memories to sports editor Stu Cowan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
