Duke; Wildcats Win
It is unlikely that there have been many moments in the past
few years when Michigan hockey fans can agree with Spartan Coach
Amo Bessone about anything, but an unfortunate incident at Satur-
day night's home game should make everyone forget differences over
For anyone who was not among the 3500 at the game, or who
didn't hear about it from his roommate, the facts are these: At 13:40
of the third period, with Michigan down by a score of 4-2, Spartan
wingman Brian McAndrew threw a hard, head-on check into Michigan
captain Mel Wakabayashi near center ice, next to the boards. Waka-
bayashi's skates went out from under him and tripped McAndrew.
After laying on the ice for a moment next to Wakayashi the Spartan
rose to his knees, whereupon a fan from the first row grabbed Mc-
Andrew's stick and, with a cry of "You dirty . . .," he broke the stick
over McAndrew's helmet.
One State player verbally attacked the fan, who had remained
in his seat, but shortly thereafter, when the entire Spartan bench
had rushed over to attend to the apparently unconscious wing-
man, the spectator in question retreated to the fourth row. He
realized that he and his wife were in danger of grave physical
harm and fled from the rink through the exit under the press box.
Three policemen followed the pair about three minutes later
when they could finally get over to that press-box of the rink.
McAndrew was unharmed and proceeded to skate his next rota-
tion on the ice as well as the rest of the game.
In a phone interview yesterday, Bessone said, "This incident
only goes to point up the glaring need for screens in the Michigan
rink. They are the only team in the WCHA that doesn't have them,
and they really should, for the protection of both the players and
With regard to the players protection, Bessone related that he
had never at any time in his playing or coaching career, seen any-
thing like what happened Saturday. Michigan ticket director Don
Wier exclaimed that he had not seen the likes of the incident. seen
he was at Michigan, a stay which dates back to 1947.
Thus, although serious spectator participation is unusual
in the sport, it should be noted that had McAndrew been serious-
ly injured (which could have easily happened had his protective
helmet slipped off after the check), there would have been con-
siderably more pressure on the University to erect protective
screens, let alone the threat of a possible lawsuit for assault with
a deadly weapon. Thus the University is getting out of the whole
incident rather cheaply as far as adverse publicity goes, but this
should not allow the fact that the incident could have been much
more serious slip to the back of our minds.
The fan in question turned himself in to the police on Sunday
morning, and, although Bessone was surprised to hear this, he ex-
pressed the view that McAndrew would not press charges. However,
he said he would write a letter to Michigan athletic director Fritz
Crisler with his demands for screens.
Although attacks from fans are to be considered, it seems that
the real benefit of protective barriers accrues to the fans themselves.
It has always seemed unusual that more fans aren't hurt at
Michigan games, since the only screens are those behind the goals.
Only a lot of luck and heavy winter coats serve to protect the fans
from a quarter pound of rubber flying in their direction at 50 or 60
miles per hour. Bessone said, "I can't remember a series that we
played down there (the Coliseum) when one or two fans weren't
clunked with a puck."
The fans hardly have the protection that they deserve, as the
boards are about two and one half feet high all the way around
the rink. A pass off of the boards or a deflected puck can, and
frequently does, end up in the stands. I would estimate that be-
tween 10 and 15 pucks fly into the crowd every game, yet it is
only rarely that one sees anyone leave the rink for medical atten-
tion. Yet this too happened in the home series with Michigan
Tech 10 days ago when a woman was struck in the face with a
puck while sitting in her seat about seven rows away from the ice.
Even watching the puck closely cannot prevent some injuries, and
if a testimonial is wanted, simply ask team physician Dr. Dennis
Burke about how he got hit just under the eyebrow while standing
in the players' box at North Dakota. Sometimes one might not see
the puck coming, or even if one did, one might not be able to move
with the quickness of an athlete to block it. Either of these slips
could result in serious injury or an ugly scar.
In football circles there has always been the humorous story
about a spectator who left the stands to make a diving tackle on
an opposing player just before he crossed the goal line, but the
spectacle Saturday night was considerably different since:a young
hockey player could have been killed by an emotional fan.
There is no obvious way to prevent a recurrence of this incident
(except perhaps to publicize it and hope that it has a-sobering effect)
without the erection of some kind of protective barrier around the ice
at the Coliseum. Even if it were only chicken wire, fans and players
would be protected from each other.
