Kukla's Korner Hockey

Gerry Hart was a pretty good player with the Flin Flon Bombers of the Western Canada Junior Hockey Association, so good that he was a WCJHA first-team defenseman in 1967-68. Flin Flon had a really good team that season—featuring Bobby Clarke, Reggie Leach and Hart. Still, Hart was small and even though he scored 22 goals and racked up 290 penalty minutes in his final junior season, that didn’t guarantee him anything.
Hart ended up in the Detroit Red Wings’ training camp in 1968 and found an unlikely friend.
