Wood stock, Sherbrooke In East Final; Winnipeg Gains Junior Title Series

WOODSTOCK, Ont.— Woodstock Athletics, a team that hasn’t tasted defeat in 11 straight playoff games, jumped into the Eastern Canada Allan Cup finals and their rivals, Sherbrooke Beavers, were expected to provide them with their first big test in their quest for national honors. Athletics, fresh from a four-set victory over Collingwood Shipbuilders in the all-Ontario final, came on to dispose of the Northern Ontario titleholders, Rouyn-Noranda Alouettes in three straight games last week to earn a berth in the Eastern finals against Sherbrooke. Beavers, Quebec’s impressive Provincial champions, brushed past the Maritime winners, New Glasgow Rangers and Kingston Aces to reach the finals and senior hockey men were predicting a slambang final between the A’s and Beavers. George Roy, who coached Windsor Maple Leafs to the Eastern Canada finals last season as…

Schmidt Keeps ‘Book’ On Summer Draft Material; Emms Plans To Rebuild With Six New Faces

BOSTON, Mass. “Getting to know you…getting to know more about you… That’s the Rodgers and Hammerstein show tune which must have crossed Milt Schmidt’s lips on more than one occasion these past few weeks. The Bruins’ coach didn’t get as far as “South Pacific.” But he made most of the stops in between. Niagara Falls. Rochester. Buffalo. Minneapolis. Omaha. Tulsa. These are some of the cities-Schmitty hit on a lengthy scouting trip, which, during one span, had him seeing eight games in 11 days. “The idea was to see as many players as I could,” said Milt during a brief Easter respite with his family. “You try to get to know every player in every league—our own and everybody else’s…for you don’t know what might become available in the draft. And it’s not only…

Emms ‘Master’ Of Psychology

(As Seen In The Toronto Daily Star) Boston Bruins would have strengthened themselves a lot more if they’d made Leighton (Hap) Emms coach, instead of general manager. That’s not necessarily a rap against Milt Schmidt, the present coach, but more a reminder that Emms’ greatest successes have been achieved as a coach. The memorable fact about his junior teams at Barrie and, in later years, at Niagara Falls was their ability to produce better hockey than they ever seemed capable of playing. Apart from being a skillful hockey teacher and a shrewd strategist, Emms is adept at discovering the psychological key that will arouse an athlete, or group of athletes, to unprecedented heights. One of his most successful plays always was to cast his Flyers as downtrodden country boys fighting an uphill battle…
