Larry Kwong turns 88 today… First Asian-Canadian to play in NHL.

Great coverage of the Stanley Cup playoffs.
TODAY is the 88th birthday of LARRY KWONG – the first non-white(?) to play in the NHL, back in 1948

At the BC Hockey Hall of Fame Dinner last year, Larry was awarded the inaugural PIONEER AWARD.  Trevor Linden came over to congratulate him, as did Pat Quinn.
