Burns Encourages Kozak Not To Give Up The Game

BOSTON, Mass.— Young Les Kozak of the Rochester Americans has a booster—and an incentive—in a member of the Boston Bruins. When the 21-year-old Kozak sustained a fractured skull in a game with the Providence Reds, surgeons at Roger Williams General Hospital in Providence inserted a silver plate in his skull after surgery. The only other player in professional hockey who knows how Kozak feels is Charley Burns of the Bruins. A half-dozen years ago, when he was playing junior hockey with the Toronto Marlboros, Burns was hurt in an accident similar to Kozak’s. A plate was also inserted in his skull. Burns subsequently gained international fame by being chosen the outstanding player in the 1959 world amateur championship tournament in Oslo. Signed by the Detroit Red Wings afterward, he played a season with Detroit. For…

Douglas Sticks To Game; Proves He Has Talent

SPRINGFIELD, Mass.— Now that Kent Douglas of the Springfield Indians is spending his time out on the ice instead of in the penalty box he appears a good candidate for the Eddie Shore Trophy. At the start of the season, Douglas, on one of his frequent fits of temperament, was suspended for 10 games by AHL President Jim Balmer.

And Douglas had them, dating back to his Junior days when he was put out for an entire season for the very same offense. Douglas knew that he was on “thin ice” the very moment Balmer meted out the…

Leafs Manpower Problem Slowly Being Corrected

TORONTO. Ont.— Maple Leafs don’t consider Dick Duff an honest-to-goodness candidate for the Hart Trophy, the National Hockey League’s most valuable player prize. However, there is some pretty potent evidence in support of the diminutive left-winger. Duff fractured a small bone in his ankle Jan. 10, a night when Leafs defeated Boston Bruins, 7-5, and took over first place from Montreal Canadiens. Of the 18 games Duff missed while his ankle was mending, Leafs lost nine, tied three and won just six, earning 15 points of a possible 36. They fell 13 points off the Canadiens’ sizzling pace. Yet the weekend Duff returned to the lineup, Leafs won two back-to-back games and outscored their opposition, 15 goals to two. Their slump seemed to be cured. Duff is important to the team and to his regular linemates,…
