Bowness - Boileau - Brillant Pace Indianapolis Chiefs To Runner-Up Slot In IHL

STRATFORD, Ont.— Now that the first two games of the new interlocking schedule between NOHA and OHA senior “A” teams have been played, the result proved little in the way of comparison, because Kitchener Dutchmen edged Sault, Ont. Greyhounds 4-3 on Saturday night and then dropped a 4-1 decision to Sault. Mich. Indians the next afternoon. In view of the fact that Sault Greyhounds are in third place in the NOHA standing and Sault Indians are in the cellar, where they had a two-and-seven record prior to the Sabbath, it suggests that this interlocking schedule could prove decidedly upsetting for all teams. Most, of the teams in each group have arranged to complete the interlocking arrangement in two trips, but the Sault Greyhounds appear to be the team that really faces a…

Player-of-the-Week

Douglas Mohns, fourth year man with the Boston Bruins was converted from his regular left-wing berth to a defense position at the beginning of the season. The sturdy 175-pounder with the blistering left hand shot and great speed is making Bruins’ coach Milt Schmidt look like a million dollars as he starts in his new position with great consistency.

When the Beantowners whipped Montreal Canadiens in both ends of…
