FULL VIDEO EPISODE: If You Sucker Brad Wingfield, You're Getting A Stick To The Head
This week's Chiclets was a special Danbury Trashers episode. Since the doc dropped a few weeks ago, its been filling the void for hockey content so it was great to get additional insight from the former GM/prez and one of their many enforcers. As I mentioned in his intro, Brad Wingfield averaged 524 penalty minutes in his two seasons with the UHL's Elmira Jackals. He also played in that savage Quebec league like was basically boxing on ice. Needless to say, not a guy you want to blindside as he explains above.
One of the other characters in the doc was equipment manager/fixer/alleged saboteur T-bone. This guy made Red Auerbach look like a choir boy with the stunts he (allegedly) pulled. Including this foul move...
If you haven't seen the doc yet, get on it. "Untold: Crimes and Penalties" is on Netflix. Then listen to the interviews for more stories about this crazy chapter in minor league hockey's storied history.
