Charles Bonnycastle '20 remembers the night Andy Blair (also an alumnus of SJCS) scored 60 goals against a local team at the start of midget hockey. The young players were promised a pop for each goal they scored; Andy had “enough to open a corner store”. Andy Blair went on to become a very successful hockey player for the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Charles Bonnycastle played intramural hockey with Murray Murdoch (Murdoch, also an alumnus of SJCS, was a former great of the New York Rangers and the coach of the Yale hockey team) while at SJCS. Their team was the winner of the “Masters’ Shield”. Murdoch was captain and Bonnycastle was goal keeper because he never could skate.
