Another From The Old Trunk

I was going through an old program I have, from an Ottawa ’67s game I was at back in 1976, and I found my ticket stub inside! Such a bonus!

Here you’ll see Doug Wilson, general manager of the San Jose Sharks, when he looked like a white Jimi Hendrix. You can see Bruce Boudreau, now coaching the Anaheim Ducks, who had won the scoring championship the previous year, along with a bunch of guys who would also make the NHL, including Habs Doug Jarvis and Mark Napier.

And no, the picture of six Ottawa players isn’t a “Wanted” poster at the cop shop.

Peter Lee, on the cover and also in that one particular photo, would score 81 goals in this ’75-’76 season and was chosen by the Habs 12th overall. He’d go on to play for the Nova Scotia Voyageurs, but before he would ever wear the CH, he and Canadiens Peter Mahovlich were traded to Pittsburgh for Pierre Larouche.

Also included – Boudreau accepting the Memorial Cup, and Bobby Orr telling us about Yardley Black Label.

  1. Three others players noted in the pages have Canadiens connections. Bruce Baker, who had 31-40-71 totals that season, was selected in the first round, 18th overall by Montreal. He would go on to play five seasons with Nova Scotia. Goalie Bob Daly became the 67’s starter the following season and was drafted in the 14th round, 180 overall by the Canadiens in 1977. Daly never played beyond junior. Sault Ste. Marie’s Paul Woods, 10th in scoring, was already a Habs draftee, having been taken in the 3rd round 3, 51st overall in the 1975 Draft. He played with the Voyageurs for two years before being claimed on waivers by Detroit.

  2. Loved the 70’s OHA! I was watching the Fincups (McCourt, Seiling, Hickey) play the Marlies (Boudreau, Napier, Tonelli) 67s Young and Lee (I think Lee was the fastest skater in the OHA) and other NHL stars to be. It was a great time in my life.

    Thanks for the memories.
