BREAKING: Former Toronto Maple Leafs’ Winger Passes Away

The Toronto Maple Leafs have announced some sad news; Ken Girard has passed away at the age of 86.

Girard played right wing for the Toronto Marlboros from 1954 to 1957.
He won the Memorial Cup twice, in 1955 and 1956.

Ken played seven games for the Toronto Maple Leafs before being traded to the American League at the age of 19. His hockey career took him to the San Francisco Seals before he retired at the age of 23.

We extend our heartfelt condolences to his family.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
