Well Thought Out Yet Completely Random Penguin Card of the Week
This time, I felt like going backward featuring a 1970-71 Jim Morrison card. Is it just me or did guys in the old days just look older than they do now? At any rate...
Jim Morrison only played for the Pens for two seasons, joining the team in their third season of existence. He was an offensive defenseman for most of his hockey playing career...which, by the way, spanned from 1949-50 through 1972-73.
Rather than go on about his playing career, legendsofhockey.net already did a nice write up on his four decade spanning career. You can check it out here.
Another reason I picked a 1971 Jim Morrison...today in 1971 the more famous Jim Morrison of the Doors died in his Paris apartment bathtub. Nobody knows why and no one ever will. But, whether you are a Doors fan or not is irrelevant to the fact that there is no denying the talent of Jim and his song writing abilities.
