INTRODUCING PIERRE DUGUAY
Here at HOCKEENIGHT, we are striving, in our early stages, to bring you as many different perspectives on the fine game of hockey as possible. In that vein, we are pleased and honored to have a former member of the Chicago Blackhawks' organization join the growing HOCKEENIGHT family.
Pierre Duguay played one season with the Dallas Blackhawks in the Central League, playing alongside such future greats as J.P. Bordeleau.
So with no further ado, we proudly present Pierre Duguay!
First of all, I'd like to thank the people at Nuit de Hockee for the opportunity to share my experiences with you fine readers. I know a lot of players say they like to be remembered. Pierre Duguay has never been forgotten though.
Back in my days growing up in Longueuil, Quebec, I was said by many to be the next Jean Beliveau. Beliveau also came from Longueuil. My name is still in the record books of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, for having 5 slashing penalties in a period. This earned me the nickname of Coupe Longueuil, or "The Longueuil Cut" for you English.
I then got drafted, and went to play in Dallas. My aggressive style of play (I led the Central League in penalty minutes) led the Dallas fans to call the penalty box "Duguay's Dugout". My pregame grooming ritual earned me the nickname "Pierre with the Hair".
A few years went by, and I adapted a hairstyle, with my hair longer in the back, and shorter in the front. In Quebec, this hairstyle is also called Coupe Longueuil, or "Pierre Duguay's Cut".
Now, I work as the maintenance engineer and hockey coach at the Fleur De Lis Girls' Reformatory in Longueuil. The name of our team is Le Femmes Coupe Longueuil, in honor of Pierre Duguay.
The point is, players like Pierre Duguay always are remembered. I know the readers of Nuit de Hockee will remember me as well, as I will share my Monday morning coffee and doughnuts (my lady is employed at the nearby Tim Horton's), along with various links concering the game I love.
Not Being a Blackhawk fan hasn't stopped this individual from writing a flawed recap of their recent history.
Who is this Barry Rozner? And why does he hate the Blackhawks so? You can tell by the Lebda's quotes that Rozner was trying to bait him into saying the Blackhawks missed out, and Rozner couldn't resist getting in a dig about "Competing". Sac de douche!
A Chicago area politician keeps the game in its proper perspective.
This is something that might have scared Blackhawks fans in the past, but now we can wait for San Jose to offer him a contract.
This year's Outdoor Classic will feature the Blackhawks against the Ailes de Merde. They talked about everything at this baseball stadium except how many tickets would be available to the public.
So now I hear my name being paged over the intercom, so I will close until next week...adieu.
