IT Jr t- l .1 . '; NEW BRUINS GOALIE BRUCE GAMBLE Gamble might be the Bruins' goaler instead of Simmons. Subsequently, team bosses announced that Simmons would be given another opportunity to prove his right to the position. When a team is losing as often as the Bruins, a goal tender is a natural target for criticism, but Simmons actually has turned in more good efforts than bad ones. Patrick admitted this, but added, "I expect a goalie can win some games for you at least five or six a season not just keep you from losing. Simmons hasn't really won any for us." Gamble, a native of Port Arthur, Ont., was drafted from the New York list in 1959 after playing one sea son as a professional at Vancouver where he led the Western League in shutouts and was named rookie of the year. At Providence last season, Gamble had a 3.25 goals-against record and four shutouts. He's a broad-chested type at 5-9 and 190, is very quick moving and plays from a crouch. O'Rec, who played on the Bruins farm team at Kingston last year, had 21 goals, 25 assists after missing 20 games with a broken collar bone.
