Passing the Puck

KEN MOSDELL has had his nose broken 10 times playing hockey. The tall center of the Montreal Canadiens is still behind the mark set by Eddie Shore in the battle of the bashed beak. The former Boston Bruins’ great had his schnozzle busted no fewer than 14 times… Mosdell, incidentally, is one of the four players in the National Hockey League who were members of the colorful New York Americans. The other three are Chuck Rayner and Pat Egan of New York Rangers and Harry Watson of Toronto. Mosdell, Rayner and Watson played for the team in the 1941-42 season, last year the Amerks operated. Egan is the real veteran having joined the club the year before. The team was known officially as the Brooklyn Americans during that last season ……

Smythe Orders Goose To Hornets Following Marrage

TORONTO, Ont.— One of the most surprising bombshells that has been thrown this season was the banishment of Long John McCormack, the Leafs’ lanky penalty killing centre, to the salt mines at Pittsburgh one day after his marriage to Margaret Anne Gordon of Weston, a suburb(?) of Toronto. McCormack’s long struggle to get to the top with the Leafs was clouded by the sudden order of the Leaf management that he be sent to the Hornets and it followed Conn Smythe too closely on his marriage to leave much more than the impression that one was the result of the other.

Player-Of-The-Week

We would never have believed that in such a short time he would be chosen by us as Player-Of-The-Week and ’Schaefer’ Award winner. But he has, and we are proud to do so. “I never thought he would turn out as good as he has” General Manager Hap Day of the Leafs freely admits. “I always knew he had what it takes but I was worried lest he had a bad season and got down in the dumps. He is sure playing well right now.” To say he is playing well is a vast understatement and it may rate as the biggest understatement in hockey this season. Not…

Here They Come Again

Victoria, B.C.—— Two good reasons why the Victoria Cougars have jumped into contention for the P.C.H.L. championship are Eddie (Pistol) Doro-hoy left and big Eddie Mazur, right. This pair have been going great guns for Roger Leger’s club and between them have made the Cougars the hottest team on the coast. Dorohoy, in particular has been a big noise for the once lowly Cougars. In 46 games this season he has averaged a little over one point a game. He has 19 goals and 28 assists for 47 points and is leading his club in that department. Mazur is also high on the scoring list and in 48 games he has netted 22 goals and 21 assists for 43 points. Big Ed and Little Ed are called the goal dust twins on the coast. They…
