"In regards to my ankle it sure got a bad break it is cracked three places around the ankle. The main bone is broken above the ankle and the small bone is broken in the side of the leg. It looks like curtains for me as far as hockey is concerned. I look back and say that I was fortunate at that. It’s a wonder I never broke my neck. Thank God I have that at least." -Howie Morenz
