Bochen's Scoring Paces 'M' Icers

A heavy-set youngster from the
obscure hamlet of Gravenhurst,
Ont. donned a hockey uniform,
laced up a new pair of skate, and
stepped onto the ice at the Mich-
igan Coliseum for his first day of
varsity hockey practice.
Veterans returning from a team
which had finished second in the
NCAA the previous year watched
the tense, jerky movements of
the newcomer and wondered if
he was an indication of the help
they could expect from the in-
coming sophomores.
Shows Marked Improvement
Teammates were frequently ex-
asperated with his unpredictable
skating style and hard-to-handle
passes. But occasionally they felt
his weight in a corner scramble
and found him strong as a fence
post in front of the net. And, to
a man, they respected his drive
and determination.
Two seasons later, the charac-
teristic jerkiness has not disap-
peared from Steve Bochen's skat-
ing, and he still throws a "heavy
pass." But the passes are always
there, and Bochen is leading the
Michigan team in goals as right-
winger on Al Renfrew's number-
one line.
"He's one of the most improved
players I've ever seen," said Ren-
frew recently, "And on top of that
he's the kind of guy who plays
better in games than he does in
Sidelined by Injury
This is pretty lofty commentary
on Bochen, who didn't play the
first half of his rookie year be-
cause, in Renfrew's words, "He
Couldn't make the plays we need-
ed in game situations."
Bochen returned in his junior
year to be sidelined by a broken
wrist early in the season. To a
Michigan team sharply beset by
manpower shortages, his return
midway through the season came
as a blessing - in spite of his ap-
parently limited ability.
How big a blessing, however, no
one could. have guessed, not even
Renfrew. In the last six games of
last season, Bochen came on to
blast home eight goals, and wound
up second to Dale MacDonald,
who paced the squad with 19.
Plays on First Line
Last fall Renfrew placed him
on a linewith Bob White, one of
his linemates the previous season,

third year as a Wolverine regular.
Except for a brief stretch in Janu-
ary, the three have been together
ever since, and Renfrew calls
them "the strongest line we've
"They like to play together,"
points out the Michigan coach,
"And they've piracticed enough as
a line so that they can anticipate
each other."
White is equally emphatic. "I
don't even have to look to know
where Steve is," he said. "When
we break from our own zone, I
know just where he'll be any time
I want to throw the puck to him.
He's easier to work the puck to
than any winger I've ever played
Childs Praises Player
Significantly, this includes NHL
stars Doug Mohns and Don Mc-
Kenney, White's former linemates
for the Kitchener-Waterloo
Freshman coach Ross Childs,
who played with Bochen while a
stand-out in the Wolverine nets
for two seasons, is another of his
supporters. "He's not a player who
looks flashy, but he hustles all the
time - and he scores goals."
Bochen has established himself
as a stand-out in spite of recur-
ring injuries. A childhood accident
rendered his left arm weak and;
almost lifeless. Bochen carried a
bucket of sand to school with his
crippled arm every day for four
years. Today the arm is normal.
Hampered by Knee Injury
A knee condition incurred in
the accident made it hard for
Bochen to relax while skating.
Tense legs led to frequent spills as
a sophomore. Still not a smooth
skater, Bochen's sturdiness and
balance have made him the team's
top corner man - whose job it is
to center the puck.
Even now the big right-winger
is hampered by a mysterious chest
ailment which restricts his breath-
ing and occasionally limits his
turns on the ice. So far examina-
tions have failed to reveal the
cause of it.
Bochen, quiet on and off the
ice, attributes any success he's en-
joyed to his linemates.
