52219Re: Joe Daley, Penguins 1967-68
- Nov 4, 2008I went looking at The Sporting News, Tor Star and Winnipeg Free
Press for you, and no goaltenders were listed for any of the games.
However, in the Bridgeport Post, a photo of the game shows Maniago
making a save for the North Stars and the story states that Les
Binkley was the goaltender.
On Mar 21, the Lebanon Daily News shows a photo of Daley playing for
Baltimore at Hershey. Maybe he was called up as an emergency backup
and sat on the bench...
And on Nov 13 in the Uniontown Evening-Standard, the Penguins
announced Joe Daley was called up from Baltimore to play in his
first NHL game.
Of course, one could always call him and ask: 204-783-8430.
