Video- Let’s Go Back To Montreal 65 Years Ago

from Phil Hecken of Uni Watch,

In yesterday’s comments section, long-time reader Jet, who we will hear from shortly, posted an amazing video along with this comment:

WOW! A 1947 film on hockey in Montreal, shows kid hockey all the way up to the pros!

Some notable scenes – closeup of the Montreal goalie in the dressing room – with two catching gloves! No “waffle” blocker glove! Also game footage against Toronto shows both teams in dark jerseys! And every time there’s a scrum, sticks are WAY high in the air!

continued plus watch the very old-school video below and thank to a KK member for the pointer…

Very interesting. Definitely one of the few YouTube videos worth 10 mins of your time.  It really makes me want to get on a pond. 

I love the young Howie Morenz in there too.  Great goalie description in the Habs locker room shot, and it’s awesome to see The Rocket skating around.


“Hockey is such a fast rough and body-contact sport , that it isn’t generally recommended for girls, however a few tomboys are always ready and able to exhibit a good game!”

Shannahan has suspended the entire 1947 rosters of the Leafs and Habs, and those two little kids after viewing this.  Video explanation to come shortly.

Nice to see how much “respect” they had for each other in the old days.  Did you see the guy tomahawk the other player with his stick?  It’s always been more street brawl than a sport LOL.
