52226Re: [hockhist] Re: Joe Daley, Penguins 1967-68
- Nov 5, 2008I started this thing about Daley with Pittsburgh in 67-68 when I
noticed in the Mar. 16, 1968 issue of the The Hockey News (page 24)
that a story by Lou Prato said that he played in the Mar. 2nd game
against Oakland after Binkley got injured and that the summaries in
the Mar.9 issue not only had Binkley in the lineup it also had his
name in the shots on goal totals.
Stu McMurray later sent me this information on the situation after he
had the opportunity to look at the official game sheets in the NHL
offices. I'll copy what he e-mailed me:
According to the official sheets, Daley did not dress for the March
2/68 game. Bassen was the back up and Binkley played.
Daley dressed but did not play in the following games of the 1967-68
March 6/68 at STL
March 7/68 at MIN
March 9/68 vs LAK
March 13/68 at CHI
Which answered any questions I had about Daley in this game.
