“Living Legend” is what his comrades at the Montreal Gazette like to call Red Fisher. And, it’s an accurate description.
Red Fisher has been covering the Montreal Canadiens since 1954. A member of the Hockey Hall of Fame, he has seen alot -from teh days of the Rocket, Clarence Campbell, Toe Blake and Punch Imlach through Jean Beliveau, Danny Gallivan, Dick Irvin, Bobby Orr and Gut Lafleur.
