Al Hill
Al was signed as a free agent by the Philadelphia Flyers in Ocotober 1976 and made his NHL debut with the Broad Street Bullies during the 1976-77 season. And what a debut he had. On February 14, 1977, Hill set an NHL record by recording five points on a pair of goals and three assists in his first big-league game. (photo above after the game acknowledging his 5 points). He is now a pro scout with the Philadelphia Flyers.
I remember hearing about his scoring feat on the radio the next day and wondering how he would do in the future.

Couldn’t keep up the pace. But he still has the record after all these years.

Received these blue ink signed cards TTM.
