Forristall, Sanderson ©2020

John “Frosty” Forristall may be the most famous hockey trainer ever. A Bruin when they won Stanley Cups in the early seventies, and the creator of Gerry Cheever’s mask, Frosty was cool, and a close friend of Bobby Orr’s. It was Bobby and his wife Peggy who cared for Frosty over the final year of his life before he died, at 51, of brain cancer.

Yet Frosty’s greatest claim to fame might be that he was the only non-Canadian to be part of Canada’s ’72 Summit Series team. He was American. In honour of the fun-loving Frosty, can you find the bare naked man in this photo?


David Ward authors books like The Lost 10 Point Night and Bay of Hope.
