That's the way hockey film historian Bill Galloway described the late Conny Tudin who died Monday in an auto accident.

Born in Ottawa's Overbrook area Sept. 21, 1917, Tudin rose from Ottawa Boys Club hockey ranks to a stint in the NHL with the Montreal Canadiens. He also left his mark in baseball, Softball, boxing, football, golf and curling. His impact on the community was felt in many ways, from coaching to organizing hockey teams, lobbying for athletic facilities for the region's youth and making himself available to help with any worthy cause. While his hockey career spanned a wide range of participation, possibly the highlights were his tenure with the Herrin-gay Greyhounds (1938-39) and his participation in the first-ever televised hockey game in England.

Also his four seasons with the Ottawa Senators (1947-51) during which he was a member of an Allan Cup title winner (1949). His versatility enabled him to play forward or defence and with the Senators and the 1951-53 Eastern Canadian finalist Smiths Falls Rideaus was regarded as a "master penalty killer." Among Tudin's treasured trophies are a variety of golf and curling awards and a trophy bearing his name was the annual MVP award for Ridgemont High School footballers.

For more than a decade he played an active role in the Old-timers Hockey Association.

"Conny was the kind of guy who, once he got an idea, wouldn't let it go until he saw it through," said Galloway. "I remember Jean Beliveau telling me that when he played in the Quebec League Tudin made his life miserable with his tenacious checking." Tudin is survived by wife Lois and sons Terry and Rick. Friends may call from 7-9 tonight at the Hulse and Playfair Chapel, 315 McLeod St. The funeral service will be Friday at 10:30 a.m. at Riverside United Church.

Still, the 67's coach was hoping for a better beginning. "I was hoping we'd be playing .500 hockey at this stage," says Kilrea whose team plays the Toronto Marlboros on Friday at the Civic Centre. "We're two games under that and that disappoints me." The 67's have played seven of their last eight games on road and Kilrea admits that's a demanding task for a team with 11 rookies.

"I've always tried to schedule as many road games as possible early in the season," he said. "It's let me know early who can play, the players who can handle the pace and grind. If you're going to make changes this is the time to make them, not in January." There are several 20-year-olds who have become available. The 67's have room on their roster for one more overage junior and Kilrea drove to Sudbury to watch the Wolves and the North Bay Centennials clash Tuesday. "There were five kids in that game who might be available," he said.

"This was a good opportunity to watch them. We're interested in a couple of them but we're not close to making a deal yet. I want to talk to other clubs." Kilrea is looking for an experienced right winger or a tough defencemen. One of the criticisms of his club early in the season is that his defence-men have not been aggressive enough. "How can I expect my forwards to be hitting when my defencemen aren't," he said.

Veteran defenceman Jeff Ballantyne, who played only 16 games due to a knee injury last season, still is working out the rust of inactivity. He was expected to be provide muscle and leadership. The 67's also have been hit hard by injuries. Centre Greg Walters remains a questionable starter Friday due to a concussion which has kept him out of the last four games. Kilrea considered Walters a team leader.

Walters resumed skating Tuesday but he has lost 11 pounds. However, the 67's hope to have rookie winger Peter Ambroziak back after missing three games with a shoulder injury. Vern Ray, a rugged forward is another, also recovering from a shoulder problem but he's doubtful for Friday's game "We don't have the depth to compensate for all those injuries." he said The Marlies. who finished with 53 points in 66 games last season, have some of the best snipers in the league. mmmm mi me mm mm i Jim mi ii -r 1' 'TT "'iim ini -mi 11 trti fri -irrim i im nrniwum-ninrT-m -riflr'---iTr-m--i SCHOOLS find security in the knowledge that the Integra Sedan is backed by a full 5-year 100.000 km major component warranty.
