Chances are pretty good you've never heard of Andy Blair. After all, he retired from the NHL way back in 1937.
But in his day Andy was very much a dandy.
Blair, one of the first NHLers to sport a mustache, was a lanky center out of Winnipeg. At 6'2" and 180 lbs he was intimidatingly tall for his day. A distant cousin of the great Syl Apps and Murray Murdoch, Blair was quite the athlete growing up, starring in football, rugby, track and field and even golf. But it was hockey that was his game, and he was amongst the best young players in the city, starring at St. John's College high school.
