NHL Expansion Seen Coming But Eastern Cities Likely To Get Nod Before West Coast

(As Seen In Montreal Forum Magazine) MONTREAL, Que.— At least a half dozen times a season the cry is heard—generaly emanating from the West Coast—that NHL hockey must follow the lead of North America’s other major sports, and expand its operation. After one fairly recent comment of this type, one NHL governor was quoted as saying that in good time hockey would expand (for the NHL was definitely interested in growth) but probably not to the West Coast. At least not first, for there happen to be some good hockey cities in the East (now in the AHL) which would rate prior consideration. Despite the fact that many of the NHL’s critics feel the League has no desire or intent to ever expand, this is not the case. There is gold in the…

Moncton New Rivals For Amherst, Players Take Over Rambler Club

NEW GLASGOW, N.S.— There’s something new in the Nova Scotia Senior Hockey League this season: a see-saw battle for first place in the loop standings.

SPEAKING ON SPORT

(As Seen In The Toronto Star) The Mysterious Cheerleader Big-league hockey has the craftsmen, but it’s in the minors that you find the comedians and the characters. One of these is Eddie Dorohoy, a talkative little centre from Medicine Hat, who has skated for his supper in Montreal, Dallas, Cincinnati, Los Angeles and Victoria. Now he’s with Vancouver Canucks, but doesn’t always get to play, and recently an injured teammate, Barry Ross, described this incident: “I was sitting in back of our bench and somewhere up behind me this leather-lunged guy was screaming: ‘We want Dorohoy, we want Dorohoy.’ Other fans would chime in till the noise was deafening. I climbed up the stairs to see who was causing the commotion and you can guess who it was. Dorohoy, of course.” It’s in the minors…
