Sad Day: The Gump is Gone
For those of you who dabble in hockey history, I bring sad news. Lorne John Worsley, or "Gump," as he was affectionately called, has passed away.

The AP reports: Gump Worsley, the Hall of Fame goalie who didn’t wear a mask until the final season of his 21-year NHL career, has died. He was 77.
Worsley, who died at his home in Beloeil, had a heart attack Monday, The Montreal Gazette said Saturday night.
Born Lorne John Worsley in Montreal in 1929, he was tagged with the "Gump" moniker as a child because his hair stuck up like Andy Gump, the comic strip character.
The five-foot-seven Worsley began his NHL career in 1952-53, winning the Calder Trophy as the rookie of the year with the New York Rangers. He helped his hometown Montreal Canadiens win four Stanley Cup titles in a five-year span and finished his career with the Minnesota North Stars in 1973-74 - playing only his final six games with a mask…Inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1980, Worsley was 335-352-150 with a 2.88 goals-against average and 43 shutouts in 861 regular-season games. In the playoffs, he was 40-26 with a 2.78 GAA and five shutouts.


Worsley was one of hockey’s best ambassadors. The Boston Bruins organization sends our regrets to his family and friends, as well as the Rangers, Canadiens and Stars.

He will be missed.
