Whether it was his on ice anticts, like kissing the goal post after a fortuitous bounce, or his quotable interviews straight out of Yoggi Berra's book, Chico Resch was a fan favorite where ever he played. He's just a goofly likable guy!
One of the most popular TV shows in the 1970's was "Chico and the Man" starring comedian Freddie Prinze, whose wild black hair and Fu-Manchu mustache were the order of the day for may young guys. One man who followed the trend was a goaltender from Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan named Glenn Resch. The resemblance between Resch and Prinze was close enough to earn Resch the lockerroom mantle of "Chico".
