Bio

Toe Blake Bio

"[Darn] right he was tough," Elmer Lach once said about his teammate Hector "Toe" Blake. "One time, he took on the whole Detroit [Red Wings] team. They all came after him and he stood there at center ice swinging his stick, saying, 'Which one of you [guys] wants it first?' It was like a bunch of dogs trying to get at him."

To some, Toe Blake is one of the funny-named guys who symbolize "old-time hockey" in the film "Slap Shot." To others, he was the rough-looking, fedora-and-suit-wearing coach of the Montreal Canadiens who only seemed to smile when his team won the Stanley Cup -- which means he smiled at least eight times.
