We've got a great show this week as we celebrate Hall of Fame weekend and also honor our veterans and soldiers for Remembrance Day in Canada and Veteran's Day in the United States. On that note, we are honored to welcome onto the show as our featured guest, WWII Veteran and Hall Of Famer Milt Schmidt.

Schmidt, 91 was a member of the famed "Kraut Line" with his childhood friends Woody Dumart and Bobby Bauer. They were a strong and dependable line for the Bruins for most of the following fifteen seasons. They were a key ingredient to the Bruins' success as they rampaged to the regular season title and and won the 1939 Stanley Cup. The following season he led the league in scoring and guided the Bruins to another first place finish and the third most goals in team history to date.

In 1941 Schmidt spearheaded the Bruins to their second Cup win in three years. However, the Bruins were decimated by World War II the following year as Schmidt, Bauer and Dumart enlisted in the Canadian military and superstar American goaltender Frank Brimsek enlisted with the American Coast Guard. The Kraut Line found success playing hockey for the Ottawa RCAF team by winning the Allan Cup before heading overseas. Schmidt, Bauer and Dumart would end up missing three productive NHL seasons due to their service in the War.

Schmidt returned for the beginning of the 1946 season and resumed his star career finishing fourth in league scoring in 1947. Schmidt was named captain in 1951 and won the Hart Trophy as the league's most valuable player that year. He retired as a player partway through the 1954-55 season to take over head coaching duties.
