Sugar Jim On A Better Day

You’ve all seen the famous photo of the Rocket and Sugar Jim Henry shaking hands after Rocket’s big goal that eliminated the Bruins in the 1951-52 semi-finals, and both are battered and bruised warriors. But did you ever see what Sugar Jim looked like on a much better day?

I found this nice picture of Sugar Jim from the 1950-51 season, a year before the big goal, in a pile of old magazines I have. He’s actually talking to a young fan in the photo but I had to crop the little guy out of it to make Sugar Jim’s face bigger so you could see it.
