Old The Hockey News front page

Found this & thought I share, bring back a lot of memories when the Hockey News was a newspaper. I bet JeffR has them all.

There's a guy on HFBoards who owns every issue. I think it might even be the same Habsfan18 that posts here: https://hfboards.mandatory.com/threa...hotos.2404781/

It's a shame that the Hockey News doesn't have a proper online archive.

Yes, it would be great if they did.........I have The Hockey News subscription for my table but it's not the same as having the old newspaper style in your hands

During the 1990s, THN was my only source for NHL news and info and only when i was lucky enough to grab a copy in the only shop selling it in Vienna - no satellite TV or Internet streams over here back in the day, lol

Nah, those are all before my collection starts. My first THN was May 11, 1979, with Guy Lafleur on the cover and "Cherry-Sinden Rift Brewing" as one of the headlines. And an ad on page 25, taken out by the WHA, that looks like something from the turn of the century, pointing out that "Many of the BRIGHTEST YOUNG STARS in Hockey are thrilling fans in WHA ARENAS, including WAYNE GRETZKY Scoring Ace of the Edmonton Oilers."

My first Hockey News bought was from 1971.

I think The Sporting News started publishing NHL box scores during the 1968-69 season.

I haven't looked but can earlier THN issues be found on ebay at a reasonable price?

That is me indeed.

My collection was featured in an article of THN a few years back - Toews and Kane cover. I own every single issue (1947-1948 to present day) as well as over 600 hockey books with some other hockey mags thrown in. It all equals up to over 3,400 items and counting.

My book signatures include Gordie Howe, Jean Beliveau, Wayne Gretzky, Ken Dryden, Eric Lindros, Gump Worsley, Frank Boucher, Denis Potvin, Bill Gadsby, Larry Robinson, Paul Henderson, Don Cherry, Chris Nilan, Lou Nanne, Eddie Shack and Howie Meeker.

Iím an avid collector and student of the history of hockey. Thankfully I have a very understanding wife who lets me have two rooms in the basement dedicated to collection.

Did THN always print the various league schedules?

I would love too see AHL/WHL/CPHL schedules from the 1960's.

I had a 30(or so) straight year collection of The Sporting News starting in 1967 and about that time with NHL expansion they increased their coverage of hockey and once in awhile would have a hockey player on the cover.

My favorite THN magazine was Hockey Pictorial.

My favorite overall hockey magazine was Hockey Illustrated(I have a lot dating back to the late 1960s). Each issue had a color centerfold and at one time they had AHL and WHL articles.

If you use facebook at all, take a look at the HF Boards link that was posted. It links to my facebook group which contains albums and photos of everything in my collection. If you don’t use facebook I can see about posting a few pictures here.

Very cool! That must have been an awesome experience.

I had a friend of mine gift me a signed copy of “The Game” that was a part of former St. Louis Blues GM (and former Habs assistant GM and scout) Ron Caron’s personal collection. Ken Dryden personally signed it out to Ron. My friend won it in an auction and knew I was a big collector so he past it on to me along with a signed copy of Eric Lindros biography “Fire On Ice” that was also personally signed out to Mr. Caron.

I remember watching the Toronto Toros on Global TV. I live in SE Michigan and that's one of the benefits of living close to Canada

I can remember opening night 1972 and CBC showed Alberta Oiler game.

I also recall a late season early morning game on CBC Ottawa at Los Angeles with over 11,000 in attendance at the LA Sports Arena.

CBS showed a few games but nothing to write home about.

I seen Michigan Stags vs Phoenix Roadrunners at Cobo Arena Detroit (12-31-74) a 1-1 OT tie with ex-Wing Gerry Odrowski getting Phoenix lone goal.

I used to listen to Cincinnati Stingers games on the radio(WLW-Cincinnati) with Andy McWilliams doing the play-by-play.

There was a game on youtube (audio only) of a Toros game against the short-lived Baltimore Blades.
