In 1967 when the NHL added 6 expansion teams, Larry Zeidel sent out brochures to market himself to the teams as a player, manager and marketing expert because he hadn't played for a professional team in 13 years and wasn't sure a team would take him as a player. At 39 years old Zeidel was picked up by the Philadelphia Flyers becoming a "Broad street bully" prototype. Zeidel was the first Jewish professional hockey player and is most well known for his vicious stick fight with Boston Bruin's Eddie Shack.
