PASSING THE PUCK

• DETROIT RED WINGS surprised everyone when they appointed Ned Harkness general manager and Doug Barkley coach following the sudden resignation of Sid Abel as general manager. The Wings won their first game with Barkley coaching… Denis DeJordy is playing terrific goal for the Los Angeles Kings. In fact he’s playing the best of his career right now… Another member of the Kings who is coming into his own is Dale Hoganson, colorful young defenseman. He is starting to gain the confidence which was lacking earlier… Gil Perreault, Buffalo’s star rookie, is a frugal fellow. He doesn’t even own a car… Oklahoma Citv Blazers are fortunate in having the “Hockey Hounds—The Terrific Ten” to assist them in their promotions and season ticket selling. They’ve done a tremendous job for hockey…

LOUISVILLE SLUGGER HOCKEY STICKS Made in Canada by HILLERICH & BRADSBY, LTD. Arnold Street, Wallaceburg, Ontario Sold in U.S. and Canada LOUISVILLE SLUGGER HOCKEY STICKS Made in Canada by HILLERICH & BRADSBY, LTD. Arnold Street, Wallaceburg, Owtarie Sold in U.S. and Canada STARS OF THE WEEK In The East Little Yvan Cournoyer of the Canadiens is healthy again after a spell on the injury list and that means trouble for opposing NHL netminders. They received a sample of what’s ahead this past week from the peppery right winger. Cournoyer scored three times in Montreal’s three games to raise his season count to 21 goals. But the remarkable thing about the diminutive Habs’ winger is the fact he has played in only 29 games.

Injuries Only Make Hawks Work Harder—Win More

CHICAGO— The Black Hawks neared the halfway point in their season with plenty of hurts, but far from hurting. Battered from a succession of injuries they limped home from a six-game road trip with a winning streak of five and in first place solidly. But…. the injuries. “Boy,” noted Coach Billy Reay. “When they come, they really come in streaks, don’t they?” The latest casualty was their strong right wing, Cliff Koroll, who severely bruised his right shoulder in a New Year’s Eve game at Detroit. He was expected to be out for at least a week, a week that included an important game against Boston in Chicago (January 9). So, the list of games missed because of injury read this way at the start of the new year: Jim Pappin, 20 (start of season…

BU Ranked No. 1—But Kelley Remembers ’67

BOSTON— Jack Kelley remembers 1967. He must feel like he’s reliving it at times. The Boston University coach has, as of this writing, the last undefeated team in the ECAC’s Division One. Naturally with their 5-0-1 conference record they’re top ranked, and many have said they’re tops in the country. Could be. But Kelley isn’t going around making any claims. “The only time I’ll hope to be able to say that is after the playoffs in March,” declared Kelley a few days after his crew of young veterans wrapped up their third straight Boston Arena Tournament with a 7-3 win over Notre Dame. “That’s the only time it really counts.” Cornell, with a pair of Divisional losses, has to take a back seat to the Terriers, at least until January 23 when BU invades cayuga country.…
