Coach Bowman - The Early Years

from Don Barrie of the Peterborough Examiner,

The Petes’ third coach in three years was 24-year-old Scott Bowman.

Coach Bowman, not one for keeping his concerns in-house, publicly admonished rotund defencemen Dave Besse by sitting him out until he lost some weight. He then lambasted the entire team in the newspaper for their poor home record: Eight wins in the first 15 games.

In a mid-season incident, George Montague, told by Bowman to serve a bench penalty, refused, threw his stick and gloves onto the ice then grabbed a bunch of sticks from the rack and threw them on the ice. He then stormed off to the dressing room. I guess he didn’t want to do it!
