Gordon Juckes http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1970s-inductees/1979-hockey-inductees/2631-gordon-juckes http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1970s-inductees/1979-hockey-inductees/2631-gordon-juckes Gordon Juckes
Gordon Juckes served Hockey very well in his native province of Saskatchewan and beyond. After World War II, Juckes worked for the local Saskatchewan amateur teams and eventually ascended to the Presidency of the Saskatchewan Senior League and then later the Saskatchewan Amateur Hockey Association. He would transfer his skills to the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association where he would also have a run as its President. Overall, he was a great asset for the sport of Hockey with his administrative contributions.

Harry Howell http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1970s-inductees/1979-hockey-inductees/2632-harry-howell http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1970s-inductees/1979-hockey-inductees/2632-harry-howell Harry Howell
A very good Defenceman who knew how to control his end of the ice expertly, Harry Howell won the Norris Trophy in 1967 (the last before Bobby Orr dominated the award) and was named a First Team All Star that year. Although, he was never named to another Post Season team, he was good enough to have played in seven All Star contests. Howell was known for his leadership and durability. At the time of his retirement, Howell played in more games in the NHL than any other Defenceman. Sadly, he was saddled the bulk of his career with mediocre teams (mostly for the Rangers) and never really sniffed the Stanley Cup, but he was honored properly by New York for his accomplishments there.

Henri Richard http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1970s-inductees/1979-hockey-inductees/2633-henri-richard http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1970s-inductees/1979-hockey-inductees/2633-henri-richard Henri Richard
Dubbed the “Pocket Rocket” due to being the younger (and shorter) brother of Maurice ‘Rocket” Richard, Henri Richard may have been in the shadow of his more famous brother, but he was one gifted hockey player in his own right.
