Player - of - the - Week

CHICAGO, III.— The Chicago Black Hawks, causing quite a stir around the National Hockey League because of their fast start, are hoping that nothing gets in the way of Goaler Glenn Hall that will hamper his play this season.

After averaging 25 goals a year during his first four NHL campaigns. Duff slumped to 19 last winter. That was 10 off his 1958-59 total and only on infrequent occasions did he show any of the brilliance that had characterized his work when he first moved to Leafs from St. Michael’s college juniors at the age of 19.
