Twenty-five years ago, each NHL team ap­pointed a “celebrity cap­tain” for the league’s 75th an­niver­sary sea­son. Some were even fea­tured on trad­ing cards in the 1991-92 Pro Set Plat­inum se­ries. Two of the more in­ter­est­ing choices were Karate Kid ac­tor Ralph Mac­chio and Fred Rogers, who hosted the long-run­ning chil­dren’s show Mis­ter

Rogers’ Neigh­bor­hood. In­ter­est­ing side note: Rogers tes­ti­fied in a U.S. Supreme Court case on be­half of VCR man­u­fac­tur­ers, ad­vo­cat­ing the record­ing of TV shows for later view­ing. Re­mem­ber that next time you pause the game to grab a beer.
