I drank beer with Aurele Joliat in Ottawa at the old Prescott Hotel, sometime in the mid-1980′s, and drove him home afterwards. I had brought my book, ‘The Montreal Canadiens” by Claude Mouton with me, and Aurele was more than happy to sign it and mention my broken arm.
Ken Dryden signed his book ‘The Game’ for me by writing “I’ve had a lot of fans in my life, and you’re one of them. Happy Birthday, Dennis”
My sister got him to do it. It was a bit of an inside joke.
