Next On Lifetime – Kate Micucci Stars In “The Denis Dupere Story”

During one of my recent and rare trips to a card show, I was busy flipping through a box of discounted vintage hockey when I ran across this card:
1973-74 OPC Denis Dupere
…and I thought “HAH! It’s Kate Micucci with a mustache!”

If the name doesn’t ring any bells for you, she’s half of the musical/comedy team of “Garfunkel And Oates”, and has had recurring roles on “The Big Bang Theory”, “Scrubs” and “Raising Hope”.

As for Denis Dupere, he was a journeyman NHL player best known for his wrist shot. Originally New York Rangers property, he was traded to Toronto in exchange for Tim Horton.

After the 1973-74 season, Dupere was taken from the Maple Leafs by the Washington Capitals in the expansion draft. Dupere would play most of the season with the Caps and would be their first All-Star representative.
