A name from the past - Gilles Boisvert

Recommended Posts

Fans of the long-departed Baltimore Clippers may remember the name of Gilles Boisvert, who served as the Clippers' backup goalie for a number of seasons during the 1960's and early '70's.

Recently I watched a webcast of a college hockey game between RPI and St. Lawrence University.  St. Lawrence's goalie was a fellow by the name of Francis Boisvert.  The announcer pronounced it "BWAH-vurr," rather than "boy-VAIR" as Jim West and George Taylor used to pronounce Gilles' name, but I wondered if they might be related.

Apparently they are not, but I was happy to find, in searching the Internet, that Gilles is still alive, still in Baltimore, and still very active at the age of 86.  He owns an enterprise called Baltimore Sport & Recreation Inc., which includes three ice rinks, as well as a state park camping store and a beach and marina.
