Sad news tonight as Len Lunde passed away this weekend.
Lunde was a solid second or third line checker with some play making ability. His professional hockey career would last 18 seasons, taking him all over the world, but only 321 times did he participate in a NHL game. Given how hard it was to crack a NHL line up in the days of the Original Six, this was no small feat.
The Campbell River, BC born Lunde was a dominant scorer in junior, starring with the Edmonton Oil Kings in the mid 1950s.

Len Lunde is warmly remembered also here in Finland. He was a good hockey player, inspiring coach, and a great person.
