Newspaper reports on September 27th, 1963 were detailing the visit to Vancouver by the Stanley Cup champion Toronto Maple Leafs. A crowd of 5,080 fans took in the game hosted by the Vancouver Canucks of the Western Hockey League, which took place the previous evening. As expected, the Leafs dominated most of the play, with Dave Keon scoring a goal and adding an assist. The Vancouver goals were scored by Howard Hughes (on Johnny Bower), Bob McCuskee and Buddy Boone (on Swedish goalie Kjell Svensson). The final score - Toronto -6 Vancouver-3.
