Ex - Leaf Dazzler Drillon Now Newfoundland Mentor

ST. JOHN’S, Nfld.— Gordie Drillon, one of the stars of the Toronto Maple Leafs a few seasons back—remember—has accepted a position as playing coach for the Grand Falls team in Newfoundland. Grand Falls, paper town, with Buchans, Corner Brook, Bell Island and St. John’s make up the big teams in the All Newfoundland Hockey championships. The town is very progressive especially along sporting lines and only the past season completed a modern artificial ice arena. The addition of Drillon as playing coach is expected to work wonders for hockeyists of the town—maybe not this season, but very soon, when the kids move up and learn under the guidance and good example of Drillon Second Pro Coach Drillon is the second pro coach to come to Newfoundland.

Allan Cup Holders Having Tough Time

CALGARY, Alta.— Edmonton Flyers, defending champions of the Allan Cup championship, emblematic of the Dominion senior puck title, have temporarily hit the skids in the Western Canada Hockey League. After getting away to a powerful start in a manner which carried them to top hockey laurels in Canada last year, Frank Currie’s sextet has suffered four consecutive setbacks and in the last two has been shut out both times.
