Former Capitals general manager George McPhee will be honored in ceramic form ahead of Bowling Green’s next hockey game.
Bowling Green will hand out George McPhee player/executive bobbleheads to the first 500 fans attending the Falcons’ game against the Alabama Huntsville Chargers on Friday.
McPhee is a Bowling Green alumnus and Hall of Famer. McPhee won the Hobey Baker Award as the NCAA’s best college player in 1982 before playing parts of seven seasons in the NHL.
On the left side of his body, Bobble George nails the hockey pose, rocking his vintage Bowling Green jersey and clutching a hockey stick. On the right side of his body, the George McBobble shows off how well it tidies up, wearing a black suit and gold tie. McPhee’s signature hair part completes the look.
McPhee played on Bowling Green from 1978 to 1982 and served as the team’s captain during his junior and senior seasons. After his NHL career ended, McPhee served as general manager of the Vancouver Canucks and Washington Capitals. In 2016, McPhee was named GM of the expansion Vegas Golden Knights, taking the team to the Stanley Cup Final in its first season.
Bowling Green, to advertise for the event, wrote this on their Facebook page.
