Manly, Magical Mustaches – Dennis Maruk

17 Mar

1981-82 Topps - Dennis Maruk

Interesting things about Dennis Maruk:

-He played in the NHL for the California Golden Seals
-He led the NHL’s Cleveland Barons in scoring in both of their NHL seasons in the late 1970’s
-He was the first Washington Capital to score 100 points in a season
-He was the first Washington Capital to score 60 goals in a season (25 years before that Ovechkin kid)
-He was fourth in the NHL in scoring in 1981-82

He did all this while standing 5 foot 8.  He can grow a Fu Manchu if he wants to.  You try doing all that.

    The Seals had a pretty solid line in Maruk, Al MacAdam and Don Murdoch. They had Charlie Simmer in their system and had just unloaded a young Reggie Leach. Makes you wonder what might have become of that team had they been a little smarter at hanging onto guys (and picks).

    Guy Lafleur was taken with a Seals draft pick.
