Even though the television screen says 1963, it was actually Nov. 26, 1960 when the Chatham Maroons senior squad met Moscow Select in Russia and were bombed 11-2 by the home team.
Chatham had won the Allan Cup that year, taking out the Trail Smoke Eaters, and played two exhibition games in Moscow, winning the first 5-3 before this slaughter that you see here. They also played a couple of games in Sweden, winning one 3-1 and tying 3-3.
Chatham opted out of representing Canada in the World Championships held the following year due to lack of funds and were replaced by the Smoke Eaters, who ended up winning the gold medal. I’m sure Chatham felt terrible about not going, especially after seeing the team they had handled without much difficulty go on to win the whole thing.
