Biography

Ralph Lawrence HANSCH

Ralph Hansch was the goalkeeper of the Edmonton Mercurys that won the 1952 Olympic gold medal in ice hockey. He played with number 0, the only player ever to do so at the Olympics. Hansch quit playing hockey after the Olympics to become a firefighter. He also played for the Edmonton Flyers and the Camrose Maroons, and he was only added to the roster for the Mercurys a few months before the 1952 Winter Olympics. His son Randy, also a goalie, was drafted by the Detroit Red Wings in 1986, but never actually played in the NHL. Ralph Hansch died of pneumonia, aged 83.
