Former Swiss national team player Oscar Mudry passed away on Monday in his hometown of Martigny. He was 91 years old.
Mudry was a founding member of HC Martigny as a 14-year-old in 1939 and became the first player from the city to play in the top Swiss league when he moved to Lausanne HC ten years later.
He was also called to the national team and made the squad for the 1953 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship on home ice in Zurich and Basel where Switzerland won the bronze medal. It was the last medal in the competition for the country until the silver-medal win in 2013.
He later returned to his hometown team where he worked as a coach and later served as a President.
