Blues Offer Swedish Ace Five-Game Trial In NHL

WINNIPEG, Man. — Swedish leftwinger Ulf Sterner will be invited to play five National Hockey Lea’gue games with New York Rangers.

Just when it looked as if the Barons would have to open the 1962-63 season with the trainer, stick boy and hot dog vendors occupying key positions, the Cana-diens crashed through at the zero hour with Terry Gray, Joe Szura, Wayne Boddy and Bob Olajos. The latter three stuck all season. Gray soon went to Quebec for Gary Bergman. The picture is not quite as black for 1963-64. While more help still is expected, as promised, from Montreal, the Barons do know over a week in advance of…
