Long, Stan (1929-1983)
Born in Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada. Defenceman. A stand out defenceman for the Barrie Flyers in the late 1940's and an Ontario Junior All-Star, he was actively courted by Toronto who wanted to pair him with a former arch-rival Tim Horton. Stan did not want to sign with Toronto and he was one of the few players to openly defy legendary coach Hap Emms who ultimately relented and assigned his rights to Montreal. At a time the Montreal line-up was nearly impossible to break, so Stan was sent to Victoria Cougars in 1950 as part of a policy to stock the historically weak Cougars with some serious talent. Stan played with Montreal in the 1952 final against Detroit Red Wings who were unstoppable that season. He was set to return to the parent club the following year when a devastating on ice injury nearly took his life. In a collision with an opposing player whose stick broke, Stan's thigh was pierced through severing the femoral artery, Stan lost more than half his blood. Only the quick thinking of the team trainer and the presence of a doctor in the arena saved his life. The doctors declared he would never walk again, let alone play hockey, but by the following season, coming back with the Buffalo Bisons of the American Hockey League, Stan was returning to form only to be stopped short due to complications form the injury. Despite the medical complications that plagued him throughout the rest of his life he was able to return to hockey as the team captain and biggest ever acquisition of the Strathroy Rockets leading them to Ontario Senior B championships. The Rockets were a formidable group of such skill and stature that they played exhibition games with the Detroit Red Wings and the Czechoslovakian National Team. Stan's last hockey was with the Allan Cup Champion Senior A Chatham Maroons on a tour they made of Scandinavia and the Soviet Union in 1960, during the height of the Cold War. Brother of Norm Long.
