Habs Wield Hot Sticks In Camp Play

MONTREAL, Que.— Montreal Canadiens, who had trouble putting the puck in the net most of last season, have been on a scoring rampage in early exhibition contests. Habs scored 20 goals in the first three games of their exhibition schedule, though most of .the markers were against opposition that was well below NHL calibre. Nevertheless, the scoring outburst was an encouraging sign that the team will be on the beam when they start to play for real on October 11th. Rookie Mickey Redmond, ve-teran Dick Duff and powerplay specialist Yvan Cournoyer were the early pace-setters for Habs. Redmond, a standout in training camp, showed plenty of skill and poise for a kid fresh out of Junior ranks and may well make the team as the result of his heads-up performance. He’s been working…

Little Camille Comes Back To Scene of Garden Glory

NEW YORK, N.Y.- Little Camille Henry come back to Madison Square Garden and it seemed like only yesterday that he was the darling of Gotham fandom. The veteran left winger, battling to regain a berth with the Rangers after a year’s enforced idleness, holds a special spot in the hearts of New Yorkers. They loved him whe he stood dwarfed by the bemoaths of the NHL and still managed to put the puck in the net. Goal scoring became Henry’s trait in the Garden. He rose to become the second highest scorer in Ranger history with 248 goals in 11 seasons here.

Ravlich Eyes Early Return After Leg In Cast 6 Months

SAULT STE. MARIE, ONT.— It was inside Black Hawk Stadium at 1800 West Madison Street, Chicago, the night of March 28, 1967. Billy Reay’s pennant-bound Black Hawks were hosting Sid Abel’s gang from Detroit in the third to last game of the regular season National Hockey League schedule. The Stanley Cup playoffs, and all that dough which goes along with it, were not far off. Matt Ravlich, a Chicago defenseman for three years, was looking forward to the playoffs. The 29-year-old Sault native had experienced a rather tough season, injuries and what not. The five-foot, 10-inch 180-pounder was just beginning to round into the form Reay and the thousands of Hawk supporters were familiar with … a robust, rushing Ravlich. The puck was flipped into the Black Hawk end of the rink and Ravlich…
