    Team USA 1952

    Early 1952, I guess, Team USA played a friendly game in Sundsvall, Sweden. I saw the game with my father. I believe that it was a warm up to the winter Olympics in Oslo, Norway but Iím not sure. My father, who spoke no English, managed to get the autographs of the following players and leaders:

    Bob (something-difficult to read), Manager
    Connie (something-difficult to read), Coach

    Don Whiston, goalie # 0
    Rube Bjorkman, goalie
    Dick Desmond, goalie
    Bob Rompre, # 4
    Allen Van, # 20
    Jim Sedin, # 12
    Arnie Oss
    Jerry Kilmartin
    Ken Yackel
    John Mulhern
    Cliff Harrison, # 14
    John Noah, # 9
    ďRedĒ Czarnota, # 3

    I would be very happy if anyone could help me with
    -the full names of the manager and the coach
    -the date of the game
    -why Lenny Ceglarski and Andre Gambucci didnít play

    (crazy) Swede

    I'm afraid I don't know enough to help you, though I should ask why the Malaysian flag would have anything to do with the content of this thread?

    The 1952 U.S. Olympic team manager was Robert (Bob) Ridder and
    the coach was John (Connie) Pleban, of Eveleth, Minnesota.

    The date of the match in Sundsvall was 9 March 1952, following
    the post-Olympic tournament of the Ahearne Cup, held in Stockholm
    from 27 February to 2 March 1952.

    Not certain about the status of Ceglarski and Gambucci for that
    game, perhaps they were rested and given the match off.
