The Cat’s Whiskers Hall of Fame was first published in Issue #4 in February 2002. A commitee of fans got together to choose the inductee’s, of which there were five before the fanzine ceased publication in 2003. The Hall of Fame was revived when the online version of The Cat’s Whiskers went live in May 2008. Four more inductees were added in 2009 to bring the total number of members to nine.

The committee met to choose new inductee’s who meet the following criteria:

  • Nominees must have played for, coached or been part of the Panthers organisation for at least two full seasons
  • Nominated players or coaches must have left the club for at least one full season
  • Nominated players must be retired
  • Anyone connected with the Panthers can be nominated

The nine inductee’s currently in the Hall of Fame are as follows:

Gary Keward – Inducted February 2002

Terry Kurtenbach – Inducted February 2002

Les Strongman – Inducted February 2002

Victor ‘Chick’ Zamick – Inducted March 2003

Randall Weber – Inducted March 2003

Alex Dampier – Inducted April 2009

Andy Smith – Inducted April 2009

Paul Adey – Inducted April 2009

Simon Hunt – Inducted April 2009

    A suggestion or two:

    Terry Gudziunas
    At first sight his two short stays may not seem to warrant ‘legend’ status but anyone who was around watching him at the time will be aware of the great impact he had on the team and the club – particularly in his first stay. Terry did much to enthuse the Nottingham public in their ‘new’ sport in the city and really helped the team take off in popularity.

    A wonderful and elegant skater and a powerful rushing d-man with a wicked slap shot, Terry excited the crowd with his offensive play but was equally sound in his defensive work.

    Jimmy Keys

    Just two seasons for the Panthers but about ten seasons-worth of effort therein. Jimmy was a completely unselfish workhorse of a player with a great team ethic. He would dig, dig, dig all night. Formed great partnerships with Jamie Crapper then Fred Perlini who both benefited greatly from the hard-working centre. No little skill either it should be said. Jimmy Keys – the type of player every successful team needs to have.

    Surely Greg Hadden should have a place in TCW’s HOF??
