Team Canada # 11
An experienced NHLer, Vic Hadfield established himself as a prominent professional forward while playing on the famous GAG (goal-a-game) line with the New York Rangers in the 1960ís. Being a tough physical player, he managed to achieve a sound scoring success with his classy teammates, Jean Ratelle and Rod Gilbert. For 9 or 10 years, the GAG line fascinated the NHL fans with their fast paced and skilled team work.

PERFORMANCE IN THE 1972 SUMMIT
Vic Hadfield played only in two games of the series and earned a disappointing "minus 3" for his performance. The GAG line wasn't quite able to reach the level of their pre-series expectations. When the series was in Moscow, Hadfield, Perreault, Martin and Guevremont left Team Canada to rejoin their NHL teams. In his book, Harry Sinden referred to the four players as deserters.
