NHL ROUND-UP

The Toronto Maple Leafs remain the top team in the National Hockey League thanks mainly due to their explosive powerplay. The powerplay is scoring on 32% of it's chances thanks to the Leafs decision to use superplaymaker forward Chris Maxwell on the point. Maxwell leads the league with 17 assists and his favourite target with the man advantage has been league scoring leader Chris Bishop, who has lit the lamp 13 times in 15 games this season with 7 of them coming on the power play.

AHL ROUNDUP
AMERICANS OFF TO HUGE START

While the parent Boston Bruins may be struggling, their Rochester Americans farm team has taken the AHL by storm. The Americans lost their season opener in Cleveland by a 4-3 score but have not lost since, winning 12 and tying 3 of their last 15 games. With 6 Calder Cup titles, including 3 straight from 1937-39, the Amerks have been a model franchise in the league and most of the big names on Boston's 10 Stanley Cup winners started their pro careers in Rochester. The latest player to be promoted to Boston is Donny Marchinko, a 23 year old forward who was leading the team in scoring with 20 points at the time of his promotion. Marchinko is expected to make his NHL debut this week. He spent 3 seasons in Oshawa of the CJHL and has played the past four years for the Americans.

NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE
BIG WEEK FOR THE BRUINS

The Boston Bruins won 3 straight games this past week to claw their way out of the National Hockey League cellar. It started on Monday as the Bruins extended their unbeaten streak to 3 games with a 2-1 victory over the Montreal Maroons at home. Andre Ravelli made 19 saves and Matt Jambrosich's 5th goal of the season proved the difference in the victory. Two days later the two clubs completed the home and home with the Bruins earning a 4-2 victory. Boston was powered by Fran Hellstead, who had 2 goals and an assist in the win. Chad Sumi, who some might remember as a scoring machine with the Quebec Remparts in the CJHL, scored his first goal of the season in the victory.

The Bruins capped off the week with an impressive 4-2 win over the league leading Maple Leafs in Toronto. Boston limited the high-scoring Leafs to just 24 shots while firing 33 themselves on the Toronto cage. Jambrosich scored the game winner and Gabryel Roy added 3 points for the Bruins.

The Leafs retained top spot in the league by going 1-1-1 in their 3 games this week with their best effort being a 4-1 victory on home ice Saturday over the slumping Montreal Maroons.

MONTOUR NAMED PLAYER OF THE MONTH

Montreal Maroons right winger Chris Montour was named the NHL's player of the month for October. The 27 year old had 8 goals and 7 assist in 13 games. On the season, he leads the Maroons with 18 points. The top goaltender for October is 40 year old Detroit Red Wings netminder Dylan Turnbull. The NHL's career leader in games played by a goalie, is off to a strong start this season, posting a 9-4-5 record with a 2.61 GAA and .905 save percentage on the season.

CANADIAN JUNIOR HOCKEY LEAGUE ROUND-UP

The Regina Pats are the hottest team in the CJHL since the last update two weeks ago. The Pats won 5 straight games including a convincing 5-2 victory on the road over the Toronto Marlboros, who remain the top team in the Eastern Conference. The Pats have been scoring goals in buckets led by 18 year old left winger Nathan Pare, who enjoyed back to back 5 point games last week and has 8 goals in the past 5 games.

The player of the month for October was Toronto Marlboros forward Mykola Melnyk. The 19 year old Edmonton native seems to have found a home with the Marlies, who are his third CJHL team. He was drafted by Quebec but dealt to the Jr Canadiens in his rookie year before being moved to the Marlboros this past summer. He was selected 40th by the Detroit Red Wings in the NHL entry draft after scoring just 32 points in 66 games for the Jr Habs. He may prove to be a steal for the Red Wings as he seems to have finally found his game in Toronto. Through 18 games he already has 10 goals and 27 points.

Great job so far! Very fun to follow. It may be a dumb question, but how did you have the league begin with almost exclusively Canadian players?

I think he changed name/nationality with the editor.. That's what I did. A bit of work, but if you start a league in the 20s or 30s there were very few (if any) European players around so it's worth it for realism.

I based all of the teams in Canada. Even Boston, Detroit etc I made their team hometown to a Canadian city originally in the league creation setup. Not certain, but I think that if all teams are from one nation there will be a much greater percentage of players coming from that nation.

That gave me far less editing to do as the league is primarily Canadian to begin with. From there as GDawg suggested I simply edit the nationality and names of my junior league draft pool each season immediately after the CJHL draft. Doesn't take long as it seems on average there are only about 10 non North Americans in the pool.

NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE
WINGS FLY PAST LEAFS

Back to back victories over the Toronto Maple Leafs highlighted a 3-0-1 week for the Detroit Red Wings, who overtook the Leafs for top spot in the National Hockey League. The week started with a 6-3 victory in Toronto Monday night followed by a 5-1 victory back at The Olympia on Wednesday. Dylan Turnbull was the hero of the night as the 40 year old goaltender turned aside 30 Toronto shots. Turnbull made 33 saves in a 2-2 tie with Chicago on Saturday and then on Sunday the Wings beat Boston 3-1 as Andy Adell had a goal and a helper.

AHL ROUNDUP

The Rochester Americans are starting to pull away from the pack in the AHL. The Amerks, the league's most successful franchise with 6 Calder Cup titles, are being led by 21 year old Jacob Vanderhoek (10-16-26) and 23 year old Preston Surgenor (10-14-24) along with 24 year old defenseman Austin Flanagan (6-15-21). Veteran presence is added in the form of career minor leaguer Joseph Novak, a 34 year old goaltender who has played over 700 minor league games and is the AHL's career leader in both wins (316) and losses (294). Neither Novak nor the young skaters mentioned above have ever suited up for an NHL game. Novak, a 2 time winner of the AHL's top goaltender award, was named the league's goalie of the month for October while teammate Vanderhoek was the player of the month.

NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE
LEAFS LOSE GOALIE BARIBEAU FOR A MONTH

Despite losing their starting goalie for a month midway through the week the Toronto Maple Leafs have 3 wins and a tie since dropping back to back games to Detroit two weeks ago. Toronto blanked the New York Rangers 2-0 last Monday thanks to a 23 save shutout from Marc-Andre Baribeau and followed that up with a 6-5 victory over Boston on Wednesday. Baribeau left that game with the Leafs leading 5-2 early in the third period after he suffered a neck injury. 34 year old backup Evan Tilley was pressed into action for the first time this season and struggled, allowing 3 goals on 7 shots but did escape with the victory.

Tilley settled down two nights later and earned the tie in a 3-3 draw with the New York Americans. The Leafs finished off the week with a 4-1 victory over Montreal to move back into first place. Shayne Sandwith, a 23 year old winger in his second season with the Leafs, scored twice in the victory. The Leafs enjoyed success despite the fact their two talented center: Chris Maxwell and Chris Bishop were pretty quiet offensively as secondary players like Sandwith picked up the slack.

Ryan Dirk of the New York Rangers has taken over the scoring lead. Dirk had 5 points in 4 games last week as the Rangers posted a 1-1-2 record. Dirk is a 32 year old left winger from Ottawa who has played 766 career NHL games, all with the Rangers, and has 603 career points.

CANADIAN JUNIOR HOCKEY LEAGUE ROUND-UP
REGINA SENDS SCORING LEADER TO REMPARTS

The Regina Pats seem to be subscribing to the old adage that defense wins championships as they dealt their scoring leader to the Quebec Remparts for one of the best blueliners in the game. Regina parts with Nathan Pare, who was leading the CJHL in scoring with 36 points in 21 games at the time of the deal. Pare is a gifted offensive talent, scoring 68 points in 68 games last season before being drafted by Montreal with the 54th pick in the NHL rookie draft. He is on his fourth CJHL team having played for Niagara Falls and Peterborough in addition to the Pats.

In return the Pats get one of the league's best defenseman in Gord Bachman. Bachman, like Pare, is 18 years old and was taken with the 24th pick by the Detroit Red Wings in last June's NHL draft. He had 46 points last season and has 22 points in 21 games so far this year. He will team with captain George Papastavrou, 17 year old Tom Misek and 16 year old rookie Chuck Artynski to give the Pats the best defense in the Western Conference if not the league. The expectation is 17 year old Antoine Desmarais, who already has 40 points this season, will pick up the offensive slack along with rookie Oscar Anderson (9-12-21).

Pare's addition makes the Remparts probably the most feared offense in the league and the top line of Pare (18-22-40) with Justin Kamachi (17-15-32) and center Davis Rose (7-15-22) will be extremely difficult to stop. In the three games they have played together the linemates have combined for 19 points as the Remparts had wins of 7-2 over Sherbrooke, 4-1 over Montreal and 5-3 over Oshawa.

LEAFS AND WINGS SEPERATING FROM THE PACK

In a quiet week that saw one team (Detroit) play 4 games but most others just 1 or 2 and the New York Rangers none at all the Toronto Maple Leafs and Detroit Red Wings seperated themselves a little further from the rest of the league.

The absence of goaltender Marc-Andre Baribeau has not slowed the Leafs down. Toronto has a 6 game unbeaten streak on the go including a big 4-2 win on the road over Detroit in which back-up Evan Tilley made 31 saves. 33 year old Toronto winger Darren Vaness had 3 assists in the win over Detroit and followed that up with another 3 point night the next evening as the Leafs dropped the Montreal Maroons 5-1. Vaness has never scored more than 50 points in his 10 seasons in the NHL but now leads the league with 34 points through 27 games.

The Red Wings went 2-2 during the week starting with home wins over Chicago and the Montreal Canadiens but ending with losses to Toronto and Boston. Speaking of the Bruins, they won 3 straight this week and, like Toronto, are riding a 6 game unbeaten streak. The hottest player in the league right now is Boston winger Matt Jambrosich, who has 9 goals and 6 assists in his last 7 games including being involved in all 3 goals in a 3-1 win over Detroit on Saturday.

The 28 year old Jambrosich led the CJHL in scoring as a 19 year old with Brandon and won an AHL scoring title the following season. He has been a consistent 50 point scorer in the NHL - first with Toronto and then later after being acquired by the Bruins from the Leafs prior to the 1936-37 season. It was one of those typical Boston deals where the Bruins moved a talented but aging player at just the right time in order to maximize the return. In this case it was a then-35 year old Boris Vrabel, who is considered by many to be the best defenseman ever to play the game. Vrabel retired last June after 1646 career NHL games and 1108 points.

AHL ROUNDUP

The Buffalo Bisons have been the hottest team in the American Hockey League the past couple of weeks as they are 5-1-1 in their last 7 games with the most emphatic victory being a 10-3 thrashing of first place Rochester earlier this week. The big run came at the same time the Bisons activated center Adam Tilley from the injured list. The 29 year old has 15 points in the 10 games he has played for Buffalo this season. A veteran of 260 AHL games, the 29 year old Tilley has 196 career points including 65 last season. He was selected third overall by the Chicago Blackhawks in the 1930 NHL draft after a strong junior career in Sherbrooke but he has never played an NHL game.

NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE
GERBER LEADS WINGS TO WIN

The Detroit Red Wings won the latest battle between the league's top two teams as defenseman Ben Gerber had a 4-point night pacing Detroit to a 5-2 victory over Toronto at Maple Leaf Gardens Saturday night. It was a career night for the 21 year old Gerber, who joined the Wings from Hershey midway through last season and has been a stalwart on their blueline ever since. Gerber scored two even strength goals, both on shots from the point that eluded Leaf goaltender Evan Tilley. He also assisted on a pair of power play goals to improve his season output to 8 goals and 11 assists. Wings center Andy Adell also had a strong game, scoring once and adding a pair of helpers. The victory allowed the Wings to pull 2 points ahead of the Leafs but Toronto does have 2 games in hand.

The Leafs missed an opportunity to capitalize on one of those games the next night as they fell 4-3 to the Canadiens in Montreal. Goaltender Tilly had Leaf fans longing for the return of Marc-Andre Baribeau as he had a terrible night, allowing 4 Montreal goals on 20 shots. Baribeau, the Leafs number one goalie has been out 3 weeks with a neck injury and there is hope he will return to the lineup by next weekend.

One team that is thrilled with it's goaltending is the New York Rangers. 26 year old Bill Horvath (12-10-8, 2.49) leads the NHL in goals against average and shutouts with 4. He was named the league's goaltender of the month for November and has been outstanding of late including a 30 save effort in a 1-1 tie with Detroit last Thursday.

Neil Frank has made the most of his new surroundings. Traded from Boston to the New York Americans on October 22nd, Frank has 17 points in 14 games with the Americans and is now second in NHL scoring. He was also named the player of the month for November after scoring 7 goals and 14 points in 10 games.

CANADIAN JUNIOR HOCKEY LEAGUE ROUNDUP

The Regina Pats continue to lead the CJHL thanks in a big part to 17 year old Antoine Desmarias, who leads the CJHL in scoring with 51 points. Desmarias has passed former teammate Nathan Pare in the scoring race but the deal that sent Pare to Quebec and brought defenseman Gord Bachman west has benefited both teams as they each lead their respective divsions.

Looking at the scoring leaders you can see the NHL's most successful club has plenty of young scorers in it's system. The Boston Bruins have 3 of the league's top scorers in Curtis McIntyre, Chris Seftel and Brandon Moir. However, if I was betting on one player from the group of league leaders listed below to become an NHL scoring star I would take Edmonton Oil Kings center Eli Gunderson. Not eligible for the NHL draft until June, the youngster from Winnipeg just turned 18 last month. He was selected third overall by the Oil Kings in the 1939 junior draft and led the team in points with 78, earning him an assistant captain letter in the process.

RED WINGS CONTINUE TO ROLL

The Detroit Red Wings made a huge statement this week as they hammered the second place Toronto Maple Leafs 9-0 on Wednesday. The Wings followed that up with a 2-2 tie in Boston before returning home to blast the New York Americans 6-1. The Wings now have a 5 point lead on second place Toronto and a 20 point cushion on the 5th place Americans in a league where the top 4 teams make the playoffs. With the seperation between the top four and bottom four it is starting to look like the playoff participants will be determined by New Years.

The 9-0 victory was even more impressive in the fact that the Wings fired 8 goals on 32 shots against the Leafs number one netminder, Marc-Andre Baribeau, who was making his return to action after missing almost a month with a neck injury. While Anthony Manca had a pair of assists and Conner Hendricks 3 points in the win the Wings got most of their scoring from the third line as Kingston Morrison (10-14-24) had a 4 point night, Kory Stamler (4-8-12) had two goals and Lee Taylor (3-7-10) had a goal and two assists.

AMERICAN HOCKEY LEAGUE

The Buffalo Bisons have 8 wins and a tie in their last 11 games and have moved into a tie with Providence for first place in the AHL. The Bisons, farm team of the New York Americans, have been getting solid goaltending from 23 year old Chuck Walton - a Kitchener, Ontario native who is getting his first taste of AHL action. Youngsters Josh Smith (16-11-27), a 21 year old forward drafted 3rd overall after a standout junior career in Cornwall and Ian Andersteen (12-13-25) another 21 year old who was a second round pick from the Jr Canadiens are carrying the load offensively while the blueline is being anchored by a couple more youngsters in 20 year old Kevin Dyck (7-20-27), a former Quebec Rempart, and 23 year old Alexander Edmondson (7-18-25), who is in his third season with the Bisons.

NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE

The Detroit Red Wings stretched their unbeaten streak to 7 games as they have opened up a five point lead on Toronto atop the NHL standings. The Wings had just two games this week, beating the Montreal Maroons 7-2 thanks to 2 goal efforts from Austin Shabaga (9-12-21) and Aaron Berland (10-10-20) and followed that up with a 3-3 tie against the Rangers in New York. The Wings suffered some bad news in the game as 33 year old center Kory Stamler (4-8-12) is likely lost for the season after being hit with a puck in the face and suffering a fractured eye socket. Stamler is a veteran of 783 NHL games with the Rangers and Detroit, scoring 211 goals and 532 points in his career.

It is easy to see why the Wings are leading the league as they not only have scored the most goals (126 with Toronto next at 124 and the Rangers at 108) but they have also allowed the fewest against (82, with Boston next at 84 and the Rangers third with 91 goals against). 40 year old goaltender Dylan Turnbull continues to add to his incredible career as the Wings netminder leads the league in wins, goals against average and save percentage.

CANADIAN JUNIOR HOCKEY LEAGUE

The Regina Pats continue to roll over the competition in the CJHL, winning 8 straight games and 12 of their last 13 to post far and away the best record in the league. Regina is already 14 points ahead of London, the second ranked team in the western conference.

The Pats have never won the Memorial Cup but fans in Saskatchewan are thinking that will change this year. The amazing thing is this could be a two or 3 year dynasty for Regina as all of their key contributors have at least 1 more year of junior eligibility left after this season including scoring leader Antoine Desmarais (22-35-57), who is still just 17 years old. His right winger Vinny Fieber (22-22-44) is also just 17 while left winger Oscar Anderson (12-23-35) is only 16 and in his rookie CJHL season.

BRUINS, RANGERS LEAP FROG LEAFS

The Boston Bruins and New York Rangers both enjoyed a successful week as each moved ahead of the Toronto Maple Leafs in the NHL standings and can now set their sights on the league leading Detroit Red Wings.

The Rangers unbeaten streak reached 5 games with three wins this week. The blueshirts started the week with a 3-2 victory in Toronto as Ranger goaltender Bill Horvath had an outstanding game. Next came a 5-1 victory over the Montreal Maroons followed by a 6-3 drubbing of their cross-town rivals, the New York Americans.

24 year old defenseman Jean Fulatte (6-27-33) has been a big reason for the Rangers recent success. The Quebec City native has a goal and 8 assists during the 5 game unbeaten string. A former CJHL MVP with Sherbooke, he was picked 9th overall by the Rangers in the 1934 draft, and is now in his 5th full NHL season. A veteran of 290 NHL games with 133 career points he is one of the few players who went straight from junior to the NHL without ever playing a game in the minor leagues.

The Bruins have been the league's hottest team for the past month, going 10-0-4 before losing to the Americans 3-2 last Wednesday. Boston picked it right back up on Saturday with a 3-0 shutout of the Canadiens in Montreal as veteran Andre Ravelli made 31 saves for his 3rd shutout of the season.

The Hershey Bears are on a roll, winning 6 straight and 9 of their last 10 games to move into fourth place in the American Hockey League. The Bears won 3 times this week finishing off with a Sunday night 10-4 pounding of the last place Cleveland Barons. 20 year old rookie pro Charlie St. Martin had a career game in that contest, scoring once and adding 4 assists.

NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE

A relatively quiet week in the NHL with the Christmas break but the Detroit Red Wings continued their winning ways, picking up four more points during the week. The Wings opened the week with a 6-4 victory over the Montreal Canadiens in the Forum, avenging a loss to the Habs on home ice last week. 21 year old defenseman Ben Gerber (11-17-28) led the Wings attack with a 4 point night. Then on Sunday night the Wings went into Boston and beat the Bruins 4-3 thanks to a 37 save effort from Dylan Turnbull.

The New York Rangers extended their unbeaten streak to 8 games after tying Boston 3-3 and then recording wins over the Americans and Canadiens this week.

The Toronto Maple Leafs had 4 games this week, going 2-1-1, but they lost 3 key players in the process. Goaltender Marc-Andre Baribeau suffered an abdominal strain in the win over the Maroons on Monday and was sidelined for the rest of the week. He is day-to-day. Third line winger Ian Cyncar (8-17-25) suffered a neck injury in the same game and will miss about a month. The biggest loss occurred 4 nights later when winger Ben Gilbart (10-21-31) hurt his shoulder and is out a month. Gilbart had been playing with Chris Bishop and Darren Vaness on the second line.

CANADIAN JUNIOR HOCKEY LEAGUE ROUND-UP

A quiet time in the CJHL as most teams had over a week off as the league shuts down during Christmas. One player who likely did not want to see the break was Toronto Marlboros forward Mykola Melnyk, who had 6 points in his team's final 3 games before the break and has taken over the league scoring lead.

NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE
RANGERS CONTINUE TO CHASE WINGS

The New York Rangers moved another point closer to the first place Detroit Red Wings thanks in no small part to the play of winger Ryan Dirk. Dirk, the NHL's leading scorer so far this season, was named player of the month for December after leading the Rangers to a 9-2-5 record in their last 15 games. During the 13 games the Rangers played last month Dirk had 9 goals and 10 assists.

The Detroit Red Wings continue to lead the Rangers by 4 points thanks to the stingiest defense in the league. Led by goaltender Dylan Turnbull, who was named goalie of the month for December, the Wings have allowed the fewest goals against in the league. The 40 year old Turnbull, who was also named goalie of the month in October, leads the NHL in just about every career category for goaltenders. This season he has a league best 2.42 goals against average and the top save percentage at .913.

The Bruins continue to hold on to third place despite a rather rough week. Boston did go 1-1-1 with the victory coming over lowly Chicago by a 3-2 score but the Bruins also suffered a 7-1 loss to the Maroons and a 3-3 tie with the Canadiens during their 2 game trip to Montreal.

After tying Boston 2-2 on December 30th the 4th place Toronto Maple Leafs went to New York for a pair of games and lost them both - 2-1 to the Americans and 5-2 to the Rangers.

NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE
WINGS EXTEND LEAD

The Detroit Red Wings had a busy and very successful week, playing 4 games and picking 7 of a possible 8 points to extend their lead over the second place New York Rangers. The Wings opened the week with a 5-3 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs in which they scored three third period goals to rally from a 3-2 deficit. The next night in New York they tied the Americans 1-1 thanks to a 28 save effort from goaltender Dylan Turnbull.

On Saturday Anthony Manca scored a pair of goals to give him 23 on the season as the Wings won at home over Toronto 4-1 and they finished the week with a 3-1 victory in Chicago on Sunday. Youngster Lee Taylor (6-15-21) had a goal and an assist to pace the Detroit attack.

The second place Rangers also had 4 games last week but they started off with back to back losses to Boston before winning a pair from the New York Americans to end the week.

Those two wins over the Rangers along with a victory at home over the Maroons and a Sunday night tie with Toronto allowed the Bruins to close the gap on second place to two points.

CANADIAN JUNIOR HOCKEY LEAGUE ROUND-UP

The hottest player in the league right now is Flin Flon Bombers left winger Ryan Farynuk who has 29 points including 13 goals in his last 12 games. Unfortunately for Farynuk his team has not enjoyed the same success, although they did win 6 of their last 12 games the Bombers remain last in the Prairie Division. Farynuk, an 18 year old Winnipeg native, is in his third season with the Bombers and has 67 points on the year. Last season he had 41 goals and 42 assists and he was taken with the 25th pick in the draft by the Montreal Maroons.

The hottest team in junior hockey remains the Regina Pats, who lead the CJHL with 66 points. The Pats have 31 wins on the season, 7 more than the London Knights, and Regina has suffered just 8 defeats.

NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE
FRANK ON FIRE FOR AMERICANS

The Boston Bruins are likely regretting their decision to trade 31 year old winger Neil Frank to the New York Americans earlier this season. Frank has moved up to second in the league scoring race after picking up 8 points in 3 games last week. Despite the heroics from the Calgary native, the Americans managed just a win and a tie in their 3 games this week and remain on the outside looking in at a playoff berth.

Frank's week started with a 2 goal, 2 assist effort in a 5-4 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday night. Two nights later he had a pair of assists as the Americans tied the Canadiens 3-3 in Montreal. On Saturday night in Toronto Frank again had 2 assists but it was not enough as the Americans lost 6-5 in an important game against the team they are chasing for the final playoff berth.

The Leafs won two of three games last week to stretch their lead on the Americans and the Chicago Blackhawks to 7 points. In addition to the victory over the Americans the Leafs beat the Montreal Canadiens 4-3 at home on Sunday after starting the week with a 4-2 loss in Montreal to the same Canadiens squad.

AMERICAN HOCKEY LEAGUE

The Hershey Bears have been the hottest team in the American Hockey League over the past month and a half, going 16-2-1 since December 10th to move into first place in the league. The Detroit Red Wings farmclub, which last won the Calder Cup in 1931, has relied on the top offense in the league led by Phillippe Morin (17-36-53) and his wingers Angelo Rukkino (24-22-46) and veteran Jim Bohack (24-14-38).

The Bears turnaround really began on October 31st when the parent Red Wings swung a deal to add veteran goaltender Cody Sugarhead from the New York Americans in exchange for winger Daniel Kubista. Kubista did not figure in Detroit's plans but the Americans called him up from the AHL and he had 12 points in 31 NHL games this season. Meanwhile, Sugarhead has posted the best goals against average (3.04) and save percentage (.896) in the AHL since his acquistion and despite missing the first month of the AHL season he is tied for second with 21 victories.

Sugarhead has had an interesting career but has not reached the expectations of him when the CJHL's Flin Flon Bombers selected him 3rd overall in the 1925 junior draft. Two years later the Edmonton native was taken 6th overall by the Boston Bruins in the NHL draft. He missed a year after suffering a devastating knee injury and did not make his AHL debut until the age of 22. Another injury cost him all of the 1931-32 campaign but he returned to Rochester the following season before finally making his NHL debut in 1933-34 with the Bruins.

Later in the 33-34 campaign he was dealt to the Montreal Canadiens and spent two seasons as the Habs starting goaltender before losing his job to the Canadiens young star Max Holden. He played sparingly as the Habs backup for 3 seasons before being dealt to the New York Americans, who assigned him to Buffalo of the AHL for the 1939-40 season. He made the Americans roster as the backup to the legendary Tyler Kennedy this season but appeared in just one game before being moved to the Red Wings organization.

In the images below are the career stats of Sugarhead, a player who never quite lived up to the potential of being a 1st round pick although injury played a factor, and also current Montreal Canadiens netminder Max Holden - a first overall pick who looks destined to have a long and productive career in the NHL.
