Kilrea, Shore Bury Hatchet After Dispute

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. The difference of opinion between center Brian Kilrea and owner Eddie Shore of the Springfield Indians was bridged without any further incident. Kilrea left the ice during practice after being criticized by Shore several times while doing skating exercises. “I certainly feel better about everything,” claimed Kilrea. “I got a call from Pat (Egan) asking me to come to early practice with several members of the squad. I did, and I also participated in the regular squad workout. The atmosphere was entirely different, believe me. “I guess I got a little hot and maybe Eddie did. That will happen at times. Anyway, as far as I’m concerned the incident is forgotten and I’m rarin’ to go.” Kilrea is currently in his sixth full season with the Indians and, in fact, has spent his…

Gettino Jump On Rivals Lifts Charlotte

CHARLOTTE. N.C.—Things are looking up for the Charlotte Checkers in Eastern Hockey league action simply because they are getting off on the right foot in recent frays.

Tempers Hot As SJHL Aces Get Heave Ho

REGINA, Sask. Regina Pats breezed their way to 22 victories and five ties while losing only one in their 28 games of the season, but the holiday season got them down. First they took it on the chin from lowly Saskatoon Blades. Next Weyburn Red Wings belted them in their own rink 4-2 during “Young Canada Night.” Then second-place Brandon Wheat Kings cut their first-place lead further by dumping them 8-6 in Brandon just to remind Pats that it doesn’t necessarily mean “Happy New Year” just because you got off to a good start. And Pats weren’t taking their defeats in a manner befitting a first-place club. In front of nearly 6,000 youngsters in Regina, Fran Huck, everybody’s hero in these parts, got himself tossed out of the game along with Weyburn’s Dwight…
