Helmet-wearing No. 4 (JBNBlog thinks) for the old London Nationals challenges a Niagara Falls Flyer in junior hockey action from this day — Nov. 28 — in Centennial Year. Courtesy of Western Archives
JBNBlog salutes whichever LFP ace photographer caught this junior hockey action at what is likely the old Treasure Island Gardens . . . you can see the spray off No. 4′s skates.
Here’s today’s #ldnont hockey quiz — who is the London National with the helmet in the foreground? Extra points for ID’ing the Flyer & the other GoNatsGo player seen at left. Any other details on the 1967-1968 OHA season here appreciated.
The usual prizes are at hand & the celeb judges are also wondering who the three players on the ice might be.
Here’s a thought . . .who on that night would have dreamed the OHL successor to the Nationals — the defending league champion London Knights — would be playing in downtown London before about 9,000 fans vs. a hot team called the Erie (Pennsylvania!) Otters 47 years to the day later
