Happy birthday to …

Jack McIntyre: Winger for the Capitols in 1963. He had four assists in the eight games the team played in Indianapolis before moving to Cincinnati, where he would play four more games before moving to senior hockey in Guelph. He came to the Capitols after a long career that began in 1949-50 in Boston — with the EHL Olympics and NHL Bruins. He helped oust the Indianapolis Capitals from the 1951 AHL playoffs as a member of the Hershey Bears, and played 499 NHL games with the Bruins, Blackhawks and Red Wings from 1950-60, with 109 goals and 102 assists. He played in the 1953 Stanley Cup Final. His best NHL season was an 18-goal, 32-point year with Chicago in 1956-57. He was a big minor pro scorer as well in the Red Wings system. A native of Brussels, Ont., he was born in 1930. He passed away in 1998 at age 67.
