In 1953, Fred Sasakamoose (1933-2020), a Cree man from northern Saskatchewan, became the first status Indian to play in the NHL. Known for his deadly slapshot, Fred was sometimes called the reluctant Blackhawk because he almost refused a contract with the Chicago team in favour of returning to his Ahtahkakoop (Sandy Lake) reserve.
After only one season, Fred chose to leave the NHL, but went on to play with the WCHL's Kamloops Chiefs, where he was named honourary chief of the Kamloops Indian Band. When he returned home, he became Chief to his own people for six years.
Fred shared the difficulty of overcoming his residential school experience, his battle with alcohol as a young man, and working to heal substance abuse in his community. He also worked with the NHL's Diversity Committee and ran an annual hockey camp for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal kids.
