Gordie Howe and Johnny Bower Battle on Ice


To Adertise On This Page Click Here


Imagine the scene, Gordie Howe is racing down the rink, Toronto's two time Vezina Trophy winner and star Goaltender crouches low in front of his goal, like a coiled serpent waiting for its prey.

His trusty stick glints off the cold ice like an ancient sword ready to strike.

The echo of the crowds thunder resonates round the rink.

His face is set, hard, fierce and determined

But still six times MVP Award winner Gordie Howe races on, no pause, no hesitation, no fear.

His face also set and determined

Shards of ice shoot through the air as skates cut sure and clean through the ice

Speeding onwards, his eyes forward, never straying or wavering from their target

The air is charged, sparks fly as these two greats get closer

The crowd roars, hungry for battle

Mr Hockey's stick comes back in a quick, sure, blurring strike

The puck rises off the ice, shooting through the air like a bullet from a gun speeding towards its target

But the China Wall stands his ground, unmoving, unpenetrable as the puck races towards him

Will Howe manage to chip the Wall, break his defences and score?

Or will the China Wall remain unbreaking, unmoving before the shots?

Gordie Howe

Gordie Howe is referred to as simply ""Mr. Hockey".

World War II had just ended when he first entered the National Hockey League and when he played his final NHL season 33 years later Wayne Gretzky was playing his first.

Howe was selected to 21 NHL All-Star squads 12 times to the First Team.

Six times he led the NHL in scoring to capture the Art Ross Trophy and six times he won the Hart as the league's most valuable player.

His Detroit teams won the Stanley Cup four times.

Gordie Howe has hand signed this Model Stick and wrote the inscription ""Mr. Hockey".

When Gordie Howe broke the National Hockey League (NHL) scoring record of Maurice "Rocket" Richard, the debate among hockey buffs was whether Richard or Howe was the best player of all time.

Years later when Wayne Gretzky broke Howe's record, the debate was renewed, this time Gretzky versus Howe.

Johnny Bower

He didn't make it to the NHL until he was nearly twenty-nine years old, yet Bower played in the league for seventeen seasons, most of them with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

As a goalie, he was nicknamed "the Great Wall of China." Bower won the Vezina Trophy as the league's best goalie in 1961.

Four years later, he and Terry Sawchuk alternated in goal for the Maple Leafs and became the first teammates to share the award.

Bower entered the league with the New York Rangers in 1953. He went to Toronto in 1958 and stayed with the Maple Leafs through the 1969-70 season.

In 534 regular season games, he had 37 shutouts and a goals-against average of 2.53. He had 5 shutouts and an average of 2.58 goals-against in 72 playoff games.

He was finally picked up by the New York Rangers of the NHL for the 1953-54 season, but was sent back down to the minor leagues the season following.

Bower would toil in the minors four more years in Providence (Reds 1945-1946, 1955-1956 and 1956-1957), Vancouver (Canucks 1954-1955), Cleveland (Barons 1945-1953 and 1957-1958) and then again with the Rangers in 1954-1955, before being claimed by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 1958 Inter-League Draft.

He would play eleven full seasons in all with the Leafs, the remainder of his career.
