KLM LINE FLYING HIGH FOR BRUINS
The Hershey Bears high-flying KLM "Dutch" Line of Ray Kinasewich-Claude
Laforge-Willie Marshall, has been the club's big offensive punch in
early American Hockey League action.
The line gets its KLM nickname from the first letters of their last
After the first fifteen games, Marshall, pivotman of the line, was
deadlocked with Kinasewich for the team's individual scoring lead. Both
had 19 points, though the 27-year-old Kinasewich, of Smokey Lake,
Alta., was the No.1 goal getter with nine.
And right on Kinasewich's heels was Laforge, of Sorel, Que., who had
hit for seven goals. Marshall, of Kirkland Lake, Ont., had scored five,
but was the leading playmaker with 14 assists.
