Frontenacs 50th

Posted: February 22nd, 2013 @ 8:42am

Today's installment in a daily series that recalls the story of the 1962-63 Kingston Frontenacs, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of their Eastern Professional Hockey League championship season:

Fifty years ago today, Friday, February 22, 1963

The Frontenacs defeat Sudbury 3-1 and Hull-Ottawa beats St. Louis 5-3 to remain tied for first place going into a showdown of league leaders Saturday night at the Community Centre. Kingston scored three times in the first period before a tiny crowd in Sudbury, where striking arena employees continued to picket.

"Sudbury officials were reticent about divulging the exact amount of the sparse throng that bravely crossed the two-man picket line in front of the rink," the Whig-Standard reported the next day.

Cliff Pennington set up Kingston's first two goals, by Don Blackburn and Whitey Stapleton. Gerry Ouellette scored the Frontenacs' other goal, while Mike McMahon scored for Sudbury.

Kingston goalie Bruce Gamble made big saves against Gord Labossiere, Gary Jarrett and Wally Chevrier in the last two minutes of the game to preserve the win.
