ALEXANDER EVERETT MOTTER

By: Ron "Scoreboard" Johnston

Was born on June 23, 1913, at Melville, Saskatchewan and died October 18, 1996. His hockey started in his home town in 1932-33 with the Millionaires in the Northern Saskatchewan Senior Hockey League (NSSHL). The following two seasons played with Regina Pats in the Regina City Junior Hockey League. While he grew up in Regina, he had designs on being an electrical engineer. Instead he decided to stick with hockey and work on getting to the NHL.

In 1933-34 season played with Prince Albert in the NSSHL during the 1933-34 season, before going south and playing professional hockey.

His career in the National Hockey League (NHL) began with the Boston Bruins in 1934-35 only to see him also playing with their farm team, Boston and Providence. Alex only played 26 league games and 6 playoff games with Boston Bruins. In 1937 was traded to Detroit Red Wings in December of 1937.

Played two season's with Boston Cubs from 1934-35 to 1935-36 in the Cam-Am League. Then played in the International American Hockey League (IAHL) with Providence Reds from 1936-37 to 1937-38.

Detroit Red Wings' general manager Jack Adam thought Alex would be better at playing Defense. Motter hated the move, but worked hard at his new position in order to stick with the team. He went on to play six season with the club. In the final season he contributed to winning the 1942-43 Stanley Cup.

Alex served with the military during the Word War II and played with the U.S. Coast Guards during the 1943-44 season, in the Eastern Amateur Hockey League, where they won the League Championship.

After serving in the military during the World War II, Motter attempted to get back into the NHL, but was unsuccessful. He finish his career in the American Hockey League, playing 3 years from 1945-46 to 1947-48. One season each with Cleveland Barons, Springfield Indians and Philadelphin Rockets.

LESLIE ROY "LES" CUNNINGHAM

By: Ron "Scoreboard" Johnston


Les was born October 4, 1913, at Calgary, Alberta. He played Junior Hockey with the Calgary Jimmies before playing with the Regina Pats during the 1932-1933 season.

The following are his statistics: Regular Season - Games Played 4, Goals 4, Assists 0; Play-offs - Games Played 15, Goals 6, Assists 0. That season he played in the Canadian Memorial Cup Final. The Regina Pats lost in a two game series. Both game scores were the same, 2-1 for Newmarket. The second game went into 3 overtime periods, in that game Cunningham scored Regina Pats' goal. He went through the defense and fired a low shot that Newmarket's goalie, Forder, partially blocked. The frantic goaltender tried to shove the puck to safety as Cunningham streaked in and Les shoved the puck into the open net.

Les then played a season with the Saskatoon Elites of the Saskatchewan Senior League in 1933-34. Then two season with the Buffalo Bisons in the International Hockey League.

He played as a centre for the New York Americans during the 1936 and 1937 season. Then played in the American Hockey League (AHL) before returning to the NHL with Chicago Black Hawks from 1947 to 1949.


Next he played with the Cleveland Barons of the American Hockey League (AHL) from 1937 to 1939. Played two years with San Franciso Shamrocks of the Pacific Coast Hockey League (PCHL). He then retired in 1949.

The AHL p
resents the Les Cunningham Award annually for the League's Most Valuable Player (MVP). He was inducted into the AHL Hull of Fame in 2009.

Leslie Cunningham died, April 9, 1993, and is buried at the Burnsland Cemetery in Southeast Calgary, Alberta.

AL MacINNIS HOCKEY

STARTED WITH THE REGINA PATS



by: Ron "Scoreboard" Johnston


Al MacInnis was born on July 11, 1963, at Inverness, Nova Scotia. He had the blues long before he ever played in St. Louis.

It's a little-known fact that the former NHL defenseman, who was inducted into the Hockey hall of Fame, began his junior career in Regina, Saskatchewan with the SJHL's Pat Blues, who were basically a farm team to the Regina Major Pats.

Regina Pats General Manager Bob Strumm recruited MacInnis, after watching him play in a Winnipeg midget tournament. He spent the next season, 1979-1980, with the Pats Canadien Blues as a 16-year old, played in 59 games (59-20-28-48-110), also dressing for 2 games with the Regina Pats of the WHL (Western Hockey League).

"Today, Al would have been on the major junior team easily," Strumm, the director of pro scouting for the Columbus Blue Jackets, said in an e-mail interview. "In those days, it was difficult to keep a 16-year-old and we already had Garth Butcher on the Pats. In fact, Butcher, MacInnis and Al Tuer were our three 16-year-olds on Defense that season. What a group!"

Strumm fondly recalled MacInnis's work ethic and desire to hone his skills, noting that he, "shot pucks EVERY day after practice. He didn't come by the best shot in the NHL by accident."

The lanky teenager also showed a bit of a mean streak.

"We worried about his toughness that year," said Strumm. "He was tall but slight. Then one night he fought Grant Fagerheim from the Estevan Bruins at the Regina Agridome. It was NO contest...for Al. He really gave it to him. We knew after that he was going to be a player for sure."

Al played for the Guelph Platers, of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) the f ollowing season and also 1986-87. He was drafted by the NHL Buffalo Sabres in 1987.

Attended the St. Francis Xavier University in Novia Scotia from 1987-1988 to 1990-1991, were he tallied 112 points, 54 goals, 58 assists. After University, he joined the Hampton Road Admirals for the 1991-1992 season and led the team with a +33 rating. He represented the Admiral in the 1993 ECHL All-Star game. During that same season,

MacInnis made appearances with the AHL's Baltimore Skipjacks and Cape Breton Oilers. MacManus has captured four championships, three as a player; the CHL's Memorial Cup Champion Guelph Platers in 1987, The ECHL Champion Hampton Roads Admirals in 1992 and the Calder Cup Champion Cape Breton Oilers in 1993.

Played in the NHL with the Calgary Flames from 1982-1982 to 1993-1994, then with the St. Louis Blue from 1994-1995 to 2003-2004.

In 1994, MacInnis joined the Norfolk Admirals' front office as the assistant general manager. He was named general manager of hockey operations for the Admirals in 1996. In 1997-1998, the Admirals, then the Blackhawks' minor league affiliate, won their third ECHL Championship.

AL MACINNIS: When I was kid growing up in a my small town of Porta in Cape Breton Island, a small fishing village. (Port Hood is on the west coast of Cape Breton Island and the capital of Inverness County, on the Ceilidh Trail). When I became 9 or 10 years old, he was one of the two gentlemen that looked after the local ice arena. I used to go help them close up at night time and walk around and collect all the pucks that went over the boards and over the glass.

When the Spring time came along and school was out, I probably had 75 to a 100 pucks. If it wasn’t a beach day in my hometown, I used to just shoot pucks all day long. I can remember spending hours out there just shooting pucks off a sheet of plywood off my dad’s barn. Unfortunally my dad would have to resingal the barn in the fall.

I was just doing it for pastime and never thinking that it would end up the way it did and be known for the slap shot. But there was no secret stick or composite stick back then. There were just old wooden sticks with three rolls of tape on it. Used to just fire pucks, and there is no question that’s how the shot became what it is or what it was.

HAS A SPORTS CENTRE – NAME AFTER HIM

2002-2003 - WESTERN JUNIOR HOCKEY LEAGUE STANDINGS

Twenty year old Matt Hubbauer underwent successful surgery, November 15, at Toronto. He had an abnormal growth, a benigh tumor in the left sinus area, which had forced the Pat's player to miss the first 37 games of the regular season. Matt returned Wednesday, January 1st, as Pats lost to Brandon 4-2 at the Agridome.

February 25, at Brandon, Regina Pats had recorded their 14th tie game of the season when they tied the Wheat Kings 1-1, only to be one short the the WHL record of 15 held by New Westminster and Calgary. In the same game Pats played their 21st overtime game of the season, breaking a WHL record.
