Jack Crouch Is Sore Has Peeve At Shore

TORONTO, Ont.— The Ontario Hockey Association has gone to the mat with Eddie Shore and his Springfield Indians of the American Hockey League over the method by which Shore, and his associates, have allegedly tied up young hockey players during the past year … Jack Crouch, a young goalie who lives in North Toronto, has appealed his suspension from organized hockey, ordered by Clarence Campbell, high-commissioner for professional hockey, on the strength of an “A” form signed by Crouch and presented by the Springfield club for action. Crouch has given a statement to the O.H.A. Executive that the form he signed while attending Springfield’s training camp at Barrie during the fall of 1948 was represented to him “as a form of insurance to protect me from injury during the workouts,” he said.

Boys Back Down

Usually, Canadian players in England are sent home by rink managements, and the youngsters who take the “slow boat” are sad to go and reluctant to leave British hockey. Gordie Miller and Bob Kaye have made some sort of history by reversing this procedure. They asked Harringay to release them ten days after flying in from Toronto.

Both Miller and Kay have been suspended by the C.A.H.A.…

That’s why I intend to see that something is done about the balance of the club who aren’t…

Wild Bill Just Likes To Body Check ’Em

TORONTO, Ont.— Sir Andrew O’Brien, who is always on Standard Time in Montreal, had an essay labelled “Wild Bill Just Won’t Reform” in the last issue of the forementioned weekly. We would say that Sir Andrew’s timing, even though Standard, was just right for once. Mr. Ezinicki, undoubtedly, is the chief topic of conversation among Montrealers today after his thumping display against the Habitants in last Wednesday’s l-to-0, revenge-is sweet victory for the Mapleos. But we doubt if any of the Habs, as they licked their wounds, would find much solace in this quotation from Ezinicki: “I just like to body check people — there’s nothing personal about it We were sitting in the Gardens’ Grill the morning after with a few of the Leafs, talking over the previous night’s game. Naturally, the…
