Wings’ Early Slump Farted Club To Look For Help In Trades

DETROIT— Hockey has its own Law of Gravity: when a team goes down, trade talks come up. That’s what happened to the struggling Red Wings and popular center-left wing Pete Stemkowski was dispatched to the Rangers for Larry Brown and Don Luce. Veteran defenseman Bob Baun was placed on waivers and claimed by Buffalo Sabres. The object was to strengthen the Red Wings defensively and they needed it badly. A sieve held water better than the Red Wings prevented pucks from nestling in their net. You’ve got to go way, way down to find the Red Wings in the defensive standings, way, way down.

Walleceburt, Ontario Sold in U.S. and Canada HERSHEY— Veteran goalie Andre Gill has the Hershey Bears on the prowl again as the stubby Frenchmen from Sorel, Que., closed out the month of October in brilliant fashion. Getting the call from coach Frank Mathers five times last month, the 27-year-old Gill posted a winning 3-1-1 mark. However, in his last two appearances, Oct. 28 against Cleveland, and Oct. 31 against the Baltimore Clippers, Gill stole the spotlight in pacing the Bears out of the Western Division cellar and into second place. In a hard-fought game against the young, aggressive Cleveland team, Gil…
