Veteran Chalmers Hits 1,000 Paint Mark

TOLEDO, O.—Chick Chalmers, durable center of the Toledo Blades, reached an important milestone in his long International Hockey League career when he scored his 1,000th point to join an exclusive society of only three IHL players. Chalmers made it 1,000 when he had an assist in a game at Port Huron on the only goal the Blades scored in the game. It was his 65th point of the season. He started the season with 935 points on 300 goals and 635 assists. This is the 11th season in the IHL for the little Toledo forward. He joined the Blades in the 1963-64 season when the Omaha franchise moved here. He has played in over 700 league games. Chalmers still holds the league record for season points—134—and assists—93—set with Louisville in 1959-60. Only two…

Lowly Gulls May Become Giant Killers Of League Before WHL Race Is Over

SAN DIEGO, Calif.— Charley Burns, the part-time California Seals coach, said it: “San Diego may not be the best team in the league, they’re probably the worst, but they’re the sort of club which can break a lot of hearts before they’re through this season.” Lately, the Gulls have been showing that sort of potential. They knocked off first-place Portland and knocked arch-rival Los Angeles out of playoff contention for the time being by winning their fifth game in eight starts against the Blades. Chances are the Gulls can’t escape the cellar, but they have won 12 and tied two games with a little less than half the season still to play, and that’s more than most persons expected of them. About the only person who isn’t satisfied is manager-coach Max McNab.…

The Player Of The Week

The Detroit Red Wings appear to be ready to make their big move towards a National Hockey League playoff berth and one of their big stars in the club’s rejuvenation is young Paul Henderson. The rangy, fast-skating Henderson is the 13th man on the NHL’s scoring totem pole but he has played 15 games less than most of the players who stand ahead of him in the individual point race. Henderson has managed to score seven times since the second-half of the schedule started and only two other players—Bobby Hull and Doug Mohns—have netted more pucks than the determined Red Wings forward. Henderson, who conquered a serious throat ailment that put him out of action for a month, is back in the groove for the Red Wings. He picked up two goals—his 18th…

Rookie Goddard Stars In Pinch Hit Net Role

CLEVELAND, O.— Cleveland’s hockey history has been replete with the names of youthful goaltenders who have been called upon to fill a sudden breach and have come through in the grand manner. Les Binkley, before he was called to the Barons as a trainer and eventually wound up as the American Hockey League’s star netmind-er, came in from Toledo to hold the fort. Jean Guy Morrissette, who stepped in for Binkley to spark the Barons through the 1963-64 playoffs, was another. There have been others—a number of them. The latest is Chuck Goddard, a pudgy 22-year old who did his puck-stopping last season for Jacksonville. Unlike some of his predecessors, Goddard was not victorious in his first AHL start. He did, however, give it a big try. For a youngster who had spent only 13 minutes…
