"Haaar-old!"

This is the mustachioed and helmetless Harold Snepsts. He will forever be remembered as the robust though anything but graceful blue liner with the Vancouver Canucks for a combined 12 NHL seasons.

Harold was a hugely popular player on the west coast, perhaps the most popular ever. He was a cult hero in the old Pacific Coliseum, where fans would boisterously chant "Haaar-Old! .... Haaar-Old!....Haaar-Old!" over and over.

You can read the full Harold Snepsts biography here.

He also played with the Detroit Red Wings. The Canucks play the Red Wings Sunday night to kick off a long home stand. Go Canucks Go!
