CHICAGO, Ill. Reggie Fleming, one of the National Hockey League’s most rugged players, spoke in a soft voice: “I guess,” said the aggressive Chicago Black Hawk handyman, ‘’that I’ve paid over $1,000 in fines to this league in less than four seasons.” Fleming’s total this year alone is over the $500 mark with several games still to play.

Veteran left Winger Len Ronson has moved into the center spot to fill the gap. Bob Courcy, the Knights smooth skating right winger, scored four goals as the knights pasted the Cincinnati Wings 12-3 for the highest score the Omaha skaters have run up so far this year. Knights’ team captain Jim Roberts, called up to Cleveland under emergency conditions, went on up to Montreal instead of returning to Omaha. He will remain with Montreal for the rest of the year.
