Hockey Bon Jovi Sings Bob Dylan
April 21, 2012
If you’re watching the Rangers-Senators Game 5 tonight, look behind the Rangers bench for the big, blond-haired dude. That’s Jim Schoenfeld, Rangers assistant general manager. Schoenfeld was an NHL defenseman in the 1970s and 1980s, most of those years with the Buffalo Sabres. He was known for brutal hits, lots of penalty minutes, and a willingness to lie down in front of the wickedest, hardest, nastiest slapshots anybody threw at him. The dude was tough. (He also went on to coach several NHL teams until the late 1990s.)
Jim Schoenfeld also made a rock and roll album in 1971.
We did not know this. (How? How did we not know this?)
Check this out:
He actually kinda look like Jon Bon Jovi there, doesn’t he? Hey – let’s call him “Hockey Bon Jovi”! That’s Jim Schoenfeld’s new nickname, as decreed by the BRI!
Now let’s listen to the opening track:
“Schony” finishes up with “Hey Bulldog.” Gotta say one thing: Hockey Bon Jovi has good taste!
You can listen to the entire album here.
(Thanks to Jeff K. in Buffalo for pointing this out to us. Thanks, Jeff!)
