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, Monday, March 11, 1963
Playing with a depleted lineup for a week, the Hull-Ottawa Canadiens got further bad news today with word that the parent club in Montreal is recalling defenceman Jacques Laperriere to replace the injured Lou Fontinato.
With Billy McCreary, Terry Harper and Red Berenson already with the NHL team, Laperriere makes four top calibre players the Eastern Professional Hockey League club may have to do without as the season enters its final three weeks, a stretch that begins with the Canadiens two points behind first-place Kingston.
The Ottawa Citizen reports that the farm club is hopeful that, since Montreal doesn't play until Thursday, it can still use Laperriere in Wednesday's game in Hull against Sudbury.
