Hunks on Ice: Keith Magnuson by Marie-Maude Polychuck
They walk on water with fire in their hearts and ice in their veins. They play a game that Jim Murray called Murder on Ice: High sticking, tripping, slashing, spearing, charging, hooking, fighting, unsportsmanlike conduct, interference, roughing… everything else is just figure skating. These are the Hunks of Ice.
Chicago Blackhawks Defense Keith Magnuson (born April 27, 1947 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan; died December 15, 2003) played 589 career NHL games, all with the Chicago Blackhawks. Although he didn’t score many goals, he was a part of a solid defensive team with the Blackhawks. Perhaps his most telling statistic is his 1,442 career penalty minutes. On November 12, 2008, the Blackhawks retired Magnuson’s number 3.
Marie-Maude Polychuck presents one of hockey’s greatest players in two-color linocut on paper and mounted to old barn wood under Plexiglas.
