The Mystery Leaf



A friend of mine is working on a feature story on the late journalist Scott Young, who covered, among other things, the Toronto Maple Leafs in his long, long career. (Young's also notable for being the father to rock-and-roll great Neil Young.)

What my writer pal is looking for is an ID for the photo shown above, from the Leafs' dressing room circa the early-to-mid 1960s. In the middle is the elder Young and to the right is current Chicago Blackhawks VP Bob Pulford.

It's the player on the left who is, as yet, unidentified. Does anyone know who this mystery Leaf is?

Could it be Allan Stanley?

I am seeing Tim Horton, there, but I have been wrong many times.

After looking through my 60-61 Parkhurst set, I'm thinking it's Gerry Ehman. It's the nose. Check out his Beehive photo.

I'm pretty sure it's Bill Spunska.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that the fellow is Bob Nevin.

The mystery Leaf is indeed Gerry Ehman. Unfortunately, Gerry just passed away on Mar.21, 2006. Numerous links now available...

Dale Ehman (son)
