|On display - Dick Vincent's Jersey|
Dick Vincent started playing hockey in high school in Otterbutne, near Pine Falls, Manitoba. Next he went to Flin Flon, MB and Portland, Oregon, USA before coming to Kimberley. He and his wife, Alma, settled and raised their family; Dick was employed as a millwright with Cominco here in Kimberley and Alma was a substitute teacher.
March 8th 1975 at the Civic Centre Arena was an "Appreciation Nite" for Dick Vincent. Below are some excerpts from the souvenir programme handed out that night:
"the WIHL highest scorer ever ... 800 points with 340 of them goals"
"The burly right winger build is the recommended brick out-house on skates"
The souvenir programme goes on for 16 pages with accolades and exploits, to and of a great local hockey player.
