1943-44 REGINA COMMANDOES


I received the following e-mail from - Dave Wood:

Hi Ron here is the photo I hope it is of some interest. (My dad Gordie Wood is in the front row 2nd from the right). After this season he was scouted by Al Ritchie and signed a c form with the New York Rangers, he went to a rookie training camp in Winnipeg, ended up hurting is back as he said "some big kid drilled me" was sent home and that was that. My dad was good friends with Bill and Gus Kyle and worked at Kyle Brothers Sporting Goods in Regina, later managed their Calgary location and worked in sporting goods in Calgary for many years.




Received this email: March 26, 2016 - (My dad is in the picture for this, fourth from the left in the inserted pictures at the top. His name was Bill Goodhue).  He had signed up for the Navy at the time the picture was taken.  Dad past away on August 8, 2010 at age 84. He was an avid sports fan and could give you stats from any sport from any era. He also had a younger brother who played for the Red Socks ball team in Regina. His name was Don (Sam) Goodhue. I am not sure if this is of interest to you but I found your website and found it very interesting.

Thank you
Joanne Goodhue
