Toronto Maple Leafs 1964-65 Roster

Moore Finds Road Back Rough One TORONTO, Ont. Dickie Moore, former left wing great of the Montreal Canadiens attempting to make an NHL comeback with the Toronto Maple Leafs, is finding the road back isn’t an easy one. The one-time hard-rock, plagued with knee troubles that required surgery, made his 196465 debut against the Boston Bruins Oct. 23 and played again Oct. 25 with Rangers his opposition. In both games, Moore was used only sparingly but he had the unfortunate experience in those two brief appearances to be on the ice for two goals by Boston’s Reg Fleming while the Bruins were actually shorthanded and in the New York game he was tagged with a misconduct penalty when he violated the league’s ‘no talking’ rule and protested to Referee Frank Udvari, which brought him…

Toronto had purchased the 30-year-old defenseman from Montreal for the express purpose of bolstering their new Western League farm club. Now it should be pointed out that Labrosse didn’t play hockey last year and didn’t go to a training camp this fall. After leaving…

At this writing, Willie the Whip is off to one of the best starts of his long career.
