Jimmy Roberts

The Springfield Hockey Heritage Society mourns the passing of former Indians coach, Jimmy Roberts.

Roberts was the head coach for Springfield's two most recent Calder Cup championship teams in 1990 and 1991. Making the task even more challenging was achieving the championship with two different NHL affiliates. The New York Islanders in '90 and the Hartford Whalers in '91. According to the AHL's website, those two Indians clubs were the only AHL team to ever win back to back Calder Cups with two different parent clubs.

In his distinguished career, Roberts was also a five time Stanley Cup champion and played over 1100 games in the NHL.

The SHHS extends our condolences to Jimmy's family, friends and fans.


AHL Hall of Fame adds Cline and Landon

Hockey fans of the Pioneer Valley were given a surprise by the AHL on October 2nd when two SHHS Members were announced in the next class of inductees to the prestigious AHL Hall of Fame.

Two Bruce's - Cline and Landon will be honored at a ceremony on February 1st in Syracuse, NY at the AHL's All Star Celebration.

Cline was a pivotal forward during Springfield's three consecutive Calder Cup championships in 1960, '61 and '62. Consistently among the league's top scorers, in all he collected four Calder Cups, was the AHL Rookie of the Year in 1956, capturing the Dudley "Red" Garrett Award and was selected to the league All Star team twice.

Landon, as every hockey fan of this era knows, quite simply is "Mr. Hockey" in Springfield. After his playing career was cut short, he went right into the business side of hockey and has been there ever since. Already earning league accolades and enjoying success as a General Manager when Springfield won their most recent two Calder Cups (1990 and 1991), it was he and partner Wayne LaChance who stepped up and bought an AHL expansion franchise in 1994, keeping pro hockey here.

The Springfield Hockey Heritage Society congratulates both men on this great honor.


A record turnout was on hand at the Food Court behind the historic Eastern States Coliseum for Hockeyday 2015.

Once again this year the weather cooperated, giving us the perfect weather against the perfect backdrop for an incredible day of hockey past, present and future.

With each event, and more and more players attending, Hockeyday is celebrated for its festival like nature. Leading the way are the great food (catered by Take 5 in Feeding Hills) and a terrific array of auction prizes.

But the headliners of the day are the men who were responsible for giving us so many fantastic memories over the years. As the list of participants grows every year, the planning begins on who to bring in for next year's Hockeyday.

With us this year were:

Bruce Cline

Bruce Landon

Mike Corrigan

Mark Heaslip

Tim Jacobs

Gordie Smith

Mike Boland

Yves Locas

Jim Peters

Pete Harasym

Hartland Monahan

The day also featured two men from "Slapshot", Paul D'Amato (Tim "Dr. Hook" McCracken) and our own Mark Bousquet (Andre "Poodle" Lussier).

In addition to Bruce Landon, the Springfield Falcons were also represented by Senior Vice President, Chris Thompson and Manager of Communications, Andy Zilch. They were joined by Screech and the Falcons new inflatable Screech Shooter Tutor.

As of this writing, we are trying to secure a date of August 13, 2016 for next year's Hockeyday. Until then, please join the Society and take part in our events that lead up to next year's Hockeyday!
