Hab Fans Go All Out For Rookie Star Gord, Terry Pay Tribute To Rousseau

MONTREAL, Que.— A few weeks ago, before Bobby Rousseau had started getting his share of goals, a group of Montreal writers were discussing the all-stars and individual trophy selections with Coach Toe Blake. The talk got around to rookies—there were 15 listed as eligible for the Calder Trophy—and the Habs’ coach was asked about his only candidate Bobby Rousseau. “I don’t see how he can miss,” said Blake. “Rousseau has done everything demanded of him.

As this edition of THE HOCKEY NEWS went to press, Cullen had scored in seven straight games in Buffalo’s Memorial Auditorium, and had connected at least once in 15 of the Herd’s first 21 home games. Contract problems kept him out of the Reason opener as a holdout, but the 26-year-old right-handed left-winger more than made up for lost time. His record shows one “hat trick” and no fewer than six two-goal nights in the Aud. Cullen collected 28 goals in the Herd’s first 43 games and, with 27 games remaining in…
