Frontenacs 50th

Posted: April 8th, 2013 @ 1:09pm

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, April 8, 1963

Though Kingston finished the regular year with 95 points, 28 more than third-place Sudbury, don't expect the Wolves to be pushovers in the EPHL championship series, cautions Frontenacs manager Wren Blair.

"Any team that can eliminate Hull-Ottawa in straight games, and win six of its last seven matches against the Canadiens, has to be reckoned with," Blair told Ron Brown of the Whig-Standard. "After all, the Canadiens have dominated this league ever since it was formed.

"The younger players on the Wolves will probably have matured more in that series than they did all season."

The Frontenacs will open the series tomorrow night in good shape, with only Red Ouellette on the sidelines. Ouellette is scheduled to see the team physician Thursday in hopes of having a cast removed from his hand so he can play in part of the series.

Dick Cherry, the hockey-playing school teacher, will be available for every game in the series, since the Easter school vacation starts this week.

If Ouellette is unable to play, Blair will have winger Howie Dietrich standing by. Dietrich just completed a successful season with the Clinton Comets of the Eastern league.
