Barry’s Mary’s Seek 3rd In Row, If Nets Don’t Trip Them Up

HALIFAX, N.S.— Halifax Saint Mary’s, seeking their third straight Maritime Senior (Big Four) Hockey League title, have added the necessary weight up front but have run into goaltending trouble. Young Ernie Yeadon, who was brought up as a junior, has been expected to take care of this important item. But Ernie suffered a serious injury during the softball season and won’t be available for at least a month. With the league opening only a few days off, the Saints may bring in the veteran Angus (Sonny) McDonald’ who starred with Truro Bearcats, Saint John Beavers and Amherst Ramblers.

O’Connor, Kullman And Kaleta - - One Will Co

NEW YORK, N.Y.— New York City is hardly a sentimental town. Few of its citizens are dewy-eyed softies who take stock in such things as fairy tales.

Player-Of-The-Week

MONTREAL, Que.— Apparently Vernon Charles Kaiser, the oldest looking 24 year old rookie in the National Hockey League, hasn’t heard that the experts have picked his team, the Montreal Canadiens, to end in last place in the 1950-51 roce. If he knows it he doesn’t seem to care a devil of a lot. This week we are chosing Kaiser as the ‘Player-Of-The-Week’ and he becomes the first to win the Schaefer Award in the 1950-51 season. Kaiser wasn’t the outstanding player in the N.H.L. last week nor was he the leading scorer. In fact he only scored one goal. But his all round play merits the ‘Player-Of-The-Week’ distinction. In his first game against the Chicago Black Hawks, his first game in the N.H.L. mind you, he stepped onto the ice for the first…
