Eddie Shack was my neighbour & once after a winter storm I mentioned to him how much damage it did to the trees in my backyard. Next day it was all gone. I had no idea who did it until Ron Ellis told me Eddie brought a chainsaw over & did it himself. He was one of a kind.
“He came by the nickname The Entertainer honestly. So much fun to be around. RIP.”

Eddie Shack basically lived on the Starbucks patio near my parents’ house. The guy was the friendliest person on earth. Often, he would wait until my mom went inside & proceed to tell me stories that blew my 6 yo mind. Best part is he did this with everyone.

There really hasn’t been another NHL player quite like Eddie Shack. Even his skate out as one of the Three Stars was an event. Rest In Peace https://t.co/xAIqqYJBLo

When I was in Grade 2, my chum Glenn had this “Clear the Track for Eddie Shack”.
I had just returned to Canada and was learning about hockey and this immediately had my attention. I wanted one…but gladly accepted the “Six Million Dollar Man” one I got instead. pic.twitter.com/iaj4OIAM57
