1969

1969

After playing hockey for two minutes, you’re dead and four new players skate out onto the ice.  Tom Johnson stays on.  He plays the whole game.  Hockey plays are basically improvisation and based on an educated anticipation of how your teammate is going to react.  A thousand past experiences keep you in position as the puck is worked in for a shot.  Shots are hurried because half a second later you’ll have a shoulder buried in your chest.  For Wheaton, hockey is catching on.  This year we had good material and at times we played brilliantly.  Both Mark Wold and Cal Swan were among the top four scorers in the MIHL, and this year we finally had the appreciation and support of the student body.
