Today's Greatest Hockey Legend of the Day is . . . Zellio Toppazzini!
Rhode Island is not the first state to come to mind when thinking of hockey history. But they do have a rich history, thanks to Providence's long association with the American Hockey League. The Reds joined the AHL in 1940, but actually predated the AHL all the way back to 1926. The Reds would cease to exist in 1977, but AHL hockey returned to Providence in 1992 when the Boston Bruins set up their farm team there.
The greatest name in Providence hockey history has to be "The Topper," Zellio Toppazzini.
