PACIFIC COAST LEAGUE

Double Trouble Two shutouts were registered the past week, both against Portland. Lucien Desehene, of New Westminsster, blanked the Engles as well as Hec Hight on, of Vancouver. Don Slater, of New Westminster, got the only hat trick, beating Seattle’s Phil McAtee three times Sunday in Seattle. Scoreless Eagles The Portland Eagles went 146 minutes and 46 seconds without scoring a goal which included two complete games and part of two others. Bill Hartsburg broke the spell when he scored at 19:44 of the first period in Victoria. They was just over 20 minutes short of tieing the record held by Seattle when they went 168 minutes and 10 seconds scoreless.

His Size Hasn’t Bothered Phil’s Little Brother Wal, He’s Aiming For NHL Spot

CLEVELAND, O.— When 20-year-old Walter Hergesheimer turned pro in 1947 as a Cleveland hockey farm hand with the Minneapolis Millers of the United States League, his size was reckoned to be against him. He was fast and hustling, but was short and a light-weight. The next year he played the full 70-game schedule with another farm club, San Francisco of the Pacific Coast League. The reports on him were glowing. He scored 73 points including 34 goals. But there was a feeling that, while he was a fine prospect out west, his size would prevent him from getting far in pro hockey … even as far as Cleveland. Last year Wally was moved up for another shot at the U.S. League. He scored 80 points including 43 goals for Minneapolis and was selected at…

Until Now Cracked Bones Weren’t In My Line-Chad

PROVIDENCE, R.I.— way back in 1930, my Dad bought me a pair of ice skates. They were the first ice skates I had ever had. Trying them out for the first time presented the problems that face every novice skater but from the beginning, I liked to skate. From that day in 1930 to this, skating, or hockey playing to be precise, has been my first love.

When I bumped into the boards in a game against Hershey here in Providence on October 29 and was carried from the ice, I hardly imagined that I was to be stuck with a broken ankle. Went Over 300 Games Without…

Player-Of-The-Week

Al Rollins, who usually portrays the part of the Thin Man in Conn Smythe’s play about goalers, is our choice as Player-Of-The-Week and ’Schaefer Award’ winner for his brilliant net guarding last week. In three games the lanky custodian allowed but three pucks to get past him and in one game he rang up a shutout. For on untried goaler Rollins has had more publicity than any other two put together. Before the season started there was doubt that he’d fit in but nevertheless Smythe announced Al and Broda would share the goaling chores of his Leafs. Any rave notices that Rollins ever drew he has lived up to. In the 17 games he has played for the Leafs this season he has won nine, tied three and lost only five. His…
