Corcoran Sure He Can Make Patrick’s Bruins This Season

ST. CATHARINES, Ont.— When the battling for jobs on the Boston Bruins roster gets underway at Hershey, Pa., later this month a determined Norm (Corky) Corcoran will be out to earn a right wing post. Corcoran skated along the right lane on Hershey’s highly-successful “Kid Line” last year with center George (Red) Sullivan and Left Winger Jack McIntyre. “If we’re given enough time to prove ourselves as a line, I think we all can make the Bruins,” Corcoran said in a chat with this writer.

The Hawks open their 1951-52 schedule at Montreal Oct. 11 with the first home game slated for Oct. 14 against New York. Coach Ebbie Goodfellow, starting his second season at the reins of the Chicago pucksters, figures about 18 men have the best chances for the 16 assignments up for grabs. With Harry Lumley a fixture in goal, the leading candidates for the defense posts in front of him seem to be Jack Stewart, Clare Raglan, Bill Gadsby, Clare Martin, Lee Fogolin and Al Dewsbury. “I’m toying with the idea of I switching ‘Dewy’ to a forward spot for at least…
