HOCKEY…For Minors

Exercise Your Wrists Did you ever notice the strength of NHL players’ wrists? They flick that puck around without any effort, sometimes one handed. When they were young, their wirsts were no stronger than yours. They strengthened them with summer laboring jobs and exercises. Here’s a good exercise for you. Find a squared stick about 12 inches long. Tie a length of cord around a piece of concrete or stone and attach the cord to the centre of the stick. By twisting the stick as you see in the illustration — winding and unwinding the weight — you’ll put your wrists to work. Start with a weight just heavy enough you can feel your wrist and arm muscles working. Change to heavier weights as the one you’re using becomes easy to wind and unwind.…

Leafs May Shop For Forward Heavy After Coast Safari

TORONTO — From Jim Gregory, this was outstanding candor. Usually any question concerning potential trades stuns the Maple Leaf general manager into silence, or the stock reply that he’s always looking to make a deal to help the team. This was recently, however when he appeared before a group of Leaf fans at the monthly Go Leafs Go luncheon, and eventually a question was received from the floor concerning possible trades. Did the usual look of horror cross the wily G.M.’s brow? No, he was positively Jim Gregarious as he explained Leafs’ position in the trading market. “We’ve got nothing at the moment,” he rasped, “but this is an important stretch of five games coming up for us, and when we’re past it Red Kelly might be ready to come to me and…

Gopher Coach Brooks Not Against Canadians

MINNEAPOLIS— The University of Minnesota has long been committed to recruiting, playing and winning with the home state boy. In the past, that policy often led to resentment when Canadian dominated university teams defeated the Gophers or state talent came back to haunt the state university. Herb Brooks, a St. Paul boy who played for the Gophers in the late 1950s and for several United States National teams throughout the 1960s, is beginning his second year as the Gophers’ head coach. And as far as he’s concerned, there’s room for Canadians and Minnesotans anywhere they choose to play. “I’m not anti-Canadian. but pro-Minnesotan,” Brooks insists. “While the Minnesota product isn’t as sophisticated as the Canadian one, with continued development we can challenge them.” Other Western Collegiate Hockey Assn. schools, especially Notre Dame and Wisconsin,…
