This is Ed Litzenberger, a player I always associated with the Chicago Blackhawks and Toronto Maple Leafs. But here he is in a Bee Hive photo wearing a Habs uniform. Litzenberger was a Hab for 34 games between 1952 and 1955, scoring 8 goals and adding 4 assists during this time. He went on to play seven seasons in Chicago, one in Detroit, and three in Toronto after that.
Litzenberger also has a Bee Hive in both a Hawks and Leafs uniform.
As you may know, I collect Habs Bee Hive photos from group 2, which are those from 1944 to 1964. There are 77 in this set, and I’m missing just nine. These would be Tod Campeau, Murph Chamberlain, Gerry Couture, Eddie Dorohoy, John Hanna, Vern Kaiser, Ross Lowe, John McCormack, and George Robertson. They’re all tough to find.
