Don and Sports
Don played goalie Junior A hockey for the Lethbridge Sugar Kings. He won MVP for his team in their 1969 playoff run to the national semi-finals, and was invited to the Los Angeles Kings training camp. There a dream came true - he got to try to stop his hero Dickie Duff coming in on him. He didn't pursue a pro career, the pull of physics and math was too strong.
There was then an interval where Don played commercial league, helping us as broke students to put food on the table. At that time he also got into lacrosse, playing goal at both the Junior and Senior levels. He helped found the first Lethbridge Lacrosse Association.
At graduate school he played goal for one year for the varsity team at Queen's.
