If you are a collector of sports memorabilia, you may be interested in knowing that there are a few rings from the late Ed Chynoweth’s collection available right here through Classic Auctions.

Meanwhile, F Arthur Miller, who lost out in the 20-year-old game with the Swift Current Broncos, has had his rights dealt by the MJHL’s Steinbach Pistons to the SJHL’s Estevan Bruins. Miller, from Regina, had nine goals and 15 assists in 107 games with the Broncos.
