Red Fisher hangs ’em up

In Friday’s edition of The Gazette, publisher Alan Allnutt announced Red Fisher has retired from the newspaper.
Fisher had been covering the Canadiens – for The Gazette and Montreal Star – since March 17, 1955.
His first night on the hockey beat?
The Richard Riot

Saturday’s Gazette will have a bunch of good stuff on Fisher.

For now, HIO bids a fond farewell to a writer who has forgotten more about hockey than most of us will ever know.

• The Thursday edition of L’Antichambre featured speculation about whom Michel Therrien might hire as assistant coaches.

Eric Desjardins and Guy Lapointe have taken themselves out of the running.

Names mentioned on the telecast included Larry Robinson, Guy Carbonneau, former L.A. Kings head coach Terry Murray, Saint John Sea Dogs coach Gerald Gallant, former Canadiens defencemen Jean-Jacques Daigneault and Gaston Gingras and L’Antichambre panelist Gaston Therrien (no relation to the head coach).
