Mohns, McKenzie ©2020

One of the challenges with posting Arthur’s images is trusting myself to know who the players are. Yes, sweater numbers help. So, despite not being able to see this Bruin’s entire head, I’m confident that number 19 is Johnny McKenzie.

Yet I doubt myself when it comes time to identify Doug Mohn. Doug wore number 11 for the Hawks around the same time as Bill Hay did, and both were redheads. Plus, I’m pretty sure that Doug wore a dark-coloured hair piece for a while, and this tricked me when I looked at other images. Doug was also one of the first players to wear a helmet, hiding much of his head. At the end of the day I decided this was Doug.
