The Gazette hired cartoonist Terry Mosher (Aislin) in 1972. The relationship is still going strong fifty years later. During his first year with the newspaper, Mosher was handed the assignment of a lifetime — to travel to Moscow and bring back sketches of the 1972 Canada-USSR hockey series. He is one of the few journalists still around who attended that historic event.
This collection of cartoons, commentary, and anecdotes draws on Mosher’s previous work as well as that of other Canadian cartoonists, legendary sportswriters of the time, and several important books on the series. It is a timely reminder of the excitement, despair, and exultation Canadian hockey fans experienced in that tumultuous year of 1972.
