The 1982-83 O-Pee-Chee Dating Game (Episode 3)

Welcome back to The 1982-83 O-Pee-Chee Dating Game, where we'll randomly select three eligible bachelors from the set and you, the reader, will choose which one wins that date with a special lady. How do we know they're bachelors? Why, it says so right on the back of their hockey cards, that's how!

Previous episodes are available here.

Episode 2 ended in a tie between Ron Francis and Steve Kasper. I'll keep the voting open for another week because we can't send both of those guys out on the date!

Now, let's start the 3rd round and introduce the bachelors chosen by the randomizer! [APPLAUSE]

Bachelor number 1: Right Wing from the Detroit Red Wings, Mike Blaisdell
Bachelor number 2: Center/Left Wing from the Edmonton Oilers, Mark Messier
Bachelor number 3: Center/Left Wing from the Montreal Canadiens, Ryan Walter

Ladies, we've got a trio of outdoorsmen this week. Let's find out more from the back of their cards.

Log cabins, flannel shirts, boats, and the scent of pine trees! Time to decide on a bachelor. Who will it be?

Bachelor number 1: Hunting man from Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Mike Blaisdell?

Bachelor number 2: Newly crowned 50-goal scorer and water-skier, Mark Messier?

Bachelor number 3: British Columbia native Ryan Walter, who's recently been traded and might need a lovely lady to show him where the best fishing spots are in his new city of Montreal?


  1. Bachelor #3. Ryan. Fishing gives a man time to think. Mike is certainly out. His last amateur adventure was with some gal named Regina. And who is she anyway, with a whole club? Regina sounds a bit more "the professional", if you ask me.

    1. Lol. I'd go with #2... mainly because I'd hope he'd introduce me to The Great One.

    2. Another hilarious comment from Julie.

  2. Gotta go #2. Sounds fun to water-ski.
