Phil Samis: Marking the Occasion

It is always nice when someone from the Toronto NHL Oldtimers lunch is recognized by the media.

Phil Samis pictured with a copy of Lance Hornsby's piece on him from the Toronto Sun

Such was the case in late December of last year, when Lance Hornby wrote about former Leaf defenceman Phil Samis. For a Maple Leaf fan, Lance's 'This Day in Leafs History' is a must read. On December 28, Lance noted Phil Samis' birth in 1927 and gave a brief history of his time in Toronto.

While in the Leafs organization, Phil won a Memorial Cup (St. Mike's) in 1945 and a Stanley Cup (Toronto Maple Leafs) in 1948.

I snapped the photo of Phil holding the story when he made his first appearance of 2015 at Monday's lunch.
