Before he had a hammer, Dave Schultz was known in Salem as the Sergeant. Dave "Sergeant" Schultz put up 69 points and 356 penalty minutes for the Rebels in the 1969-70 season. His style of play captivated the Roanoke Valley as an interest in hockey and ticket sales spiked.



Here is a breakdown of the season. Note that Saturday games are missing as with most microfilm Sunday papers are not included. All quotes are from the Roanoke World-News.

Other fights this game:

Paul Grills (S) vs. Larry Gibbons 30:01

Jacksonville @ Salem 10/26/69

Dave Schultz vs. Dennis Romanesky 44:48

"After more than two tears of living with a loser, Salem hockey fans have become a rather bloodthirsty lot. They apparently figure that if they can't watch their team win, a good fight is the next best thing.
The Rebels did not win last night, but their fans got their money's worth in the final period when newcomer Dave Schultz slugged it out with Dennis Romanesky. Observers in the press box awarded Schultz the unanimous decision. Referee Jack Leclair, an impartial soul, gave them both five minutes in the penalty box for fighting.
(Rebels coach Colin) Kilburn was especially satisfied with Schultz's debut. 'He works hard, he'll be able to help us,' offered the gregarious coach.
Although Schultz entered his battle with Romanesky with obvious eagerness, he soft pedaled his pugilistic tendencies when the game was over. "I've never had a reputation as a fighter,' the blond (?) 20-year old said. 'I've been in some fights, but I don't go looking for them."
"Schultz arrived in Salem Sunday night fresh from a tryout with the Quebec Aces. He is the property of the Philadelphia Flyers and spent last year playing junior hockey in western Canada."

Bench Clearing Brawl @ 24:32

"A second period melee, involving (August) George, center Bob Lacy, and Merv Haney of Salem, and Brian Harding and Lars Hanses of Nashville-with an assist from both benches-stopped the game for about 15 minutes."
"Even the fans got into act, as a few partisan spectators discovered they could bring a great amount of irritation to the Flyers' bench by dumping ice, soda pop, cups, and whatever on the Nashville bench.
According to George, the ice did little to cool the Flyers. While pinned against the dasher by his opponent on the ice, several Flyers went to work on August from behind the board.
"That's the bad part about it all," George said after the game. "It wasn't the guy on the ice who did this (pointing to a bruised, swollen eye), it came from their bench."

"The second period fights started when the Checkers' Allie Sutherland was tripped by Dave Schultz and went sailing head first into the boards. Sutherland, knocked unconscious, was taken to a Charlotte hospital and it was reported he had a serious neck injury."
"Billy club swinging policemen broke up the fights, which involved fans."

Charlotte @ Salem 11/27/69

Dave Schultz vs. John Van Horlick :17/No points

"Only 17 seconds after the contest began a donnybrook broke out with Salem's Dave Schultz and Charlotte's John Van Horlick the principal combatants. Coach Kilburn, although happy with the victory, was still steamed up after the game over the fight. "He (Van Horlick) came out do deliberately do what he did. It's just some more of Creighton's (Charlotte coach Fred Creighton) tactics."
"Several Checkers had promised to 'get' Schultz, believing that he had purposely injured Allie Sutherland down at Charlotte. They seemed intent on repaying Schultz before his home fans. 'Schultz ended it, though,' Kilburn said. 'Van Horlick came out on the losing end in more ways than one.'
"The two combatants were slapped with a total of forty minutes in penalties, Van Horlick collecting 25 of them. Both also skated, finally, into the penalty box with bloody faces."
"He hit me before I could drop my gloves," Schultz, who is actually very mild mannered, explained. "That's when I got cut up."
"Schultz would like to forget the whole feud with the Checkers. 'I certainly did not intend to hurt Allie or anybody else,' he said. 'The fans were on me pretty much in Charlotte Tuesday night but they really didn't bother me. I get so wound up in a game that I don't notice those things. I just want to play hockey.'"
At least one Rebel feels the Checkers will think twice before challenging Schultz again. Paul Grills, standing nearby while Schultz was being interviewed, said, "Dave won't have any more trouble with them this year. Van Horlick started it, but Dave brought it to an end."
"The on-the-ice fisticuffs were responsible for an unnoticed by the fans pressbox debate. A Charlotte radio announcer, sending the play-by-play back home, was giving a somewhat one-sided version of the fight, portraying Schultz as both the villain and the loser. Salem's Wayne Caufield, on the injured list, was sitting a few seats away and getting madder at each word the announcer said. Finally, Caufield told the startled announcer in a voice loud enough for the Charlotte listeners to hear, 'Why don't you tell them the truth! Van Horlick jumped him when Schultz was down!

(Note: Charlotte coach Fred Creighton later read this article and asked, "Who wrote that article? (Salem coach Colin) Kilburn?)"

Dave Schultz vs. Bill Cameron 19:33/1 goal/1 assist

"Sandwiched among and in between the goals were antics by the Rebs' Jim Letcher, who must qualify as the leagues most colorful goalie; a hat trick performance by Rebel Captain Jim Jago; and a three-punch knockdown by Dave "Sergeant" Schultz. "What about Schultz (who Kilburn laughingly refers to as 'Cassius Clay's brother-in-law'? It seems as if the handsome winger has trouble getting through the game without being in at least one fight. Last night, to the delight of the fans who were there, was no exception."
"The Sergeant made it until the last 27 seconds of play before he squared off with the Flyers' Bill Cameron. Schultz obviously won the mismatch. In fact, defenseman Jack Chipchase skated over and raised Schultz's hand in victory after the rough stuff was over."

Rebels' Sergeant A Fighting Man No More

"This may come as a shock, but it should be reported that Dave Schultz, the 'Sergeant' of the Salem Rebels, has undergone a remarkable transformation in the past couple of weeks. Prior to the Christmas break Schultz was known primarily as the most belligerent Rebel of them all. He never passed up an opportunity to fight, and when things got dull the Sergeant could be counted on to stir up some activity in a hurry.
The fans love it. Not only was the Sergeant aggressive, he was also very handy with his fists. As a matter of fact, Dave was undefeated at home and on the road. He led the Eastern Hockey League in penalty minutes and was the scourge of the Southern Division.
Thus it is remarkable that Schultz has not even engaged in even one little fight in the Rebels' last six games. This is somewhat disconcerting to Rebel fans who don't consider a game complete unless the Sergeant decks somebody.
The reason for Schultz's newfound complacence is very simple, according to the Sergeant himself. He just took a look at the statistics and decided he was doing too much fighting and not enough scoring.
"I think other teams respect us now," he remarked. "Nobody tries to push us around anymore. Everyone's worried about scoring and making the playoffs since the Christmas break. There's less rough stuff and more concentration on good hockey."
But Schultz did reveal that he's not a wholehearted pacifist yet.

Nashville @ Salem 1/25/70

Dave Schultz vs. Andre Lajuenesse 1:51/2 goals/1 assist

Note: Article was addressing Jack Chipchase, who had been called up to AHL Rochester.

You'll be glad to know, though, that the attendance was pretty good last night and that the other half of the Chipchase/Schultz police force did a pretty good job giving all those fans something to yell about.
Your ol' buddy, Sergeant Schultz, did get two of the Rebels' three goals. He assisted Jim Jago on the other. Also, he looked like his old self in a pretty fair first period fight against Andre Lajuennese.

Salem's Dave Schultz and Roger Wilson, the Greensboro policeman, got into it in the second period. Wilson wrestled Schultz off the ice but didn't land a punch and the fiery Schultz came back for more.

Other fights this game: none

Greensboro @ Salem 2/5/70

Dave Schultz vs. Ron Anderson 59:59/No points

The illness (of losing) was caused by two straight nights of, to be quite blunt, stinking officiating. Playing at Greensboro Wednesday night and losing there, the Rebels came away steaming mad over the raw breaks they feel they received, from the linesmen at Greensboro and from the Eastern Hockey League official Bob Giovatti.
Things got so bad at one point, so a team source said, that one of the Greensboro linesmen dropped his whistle and challenged Salem's Dave Schultz to a fight.

Jim Letcher (S) suspended the remainder of the season and playoffs for slugging a referee.


Salem @ Greensboro 2/8/70

Dave Schultz: No fights/1 assist

Other fights this game: none

Salem @ Charlotte 2/11/70

Dave Schultz vs. Jack Wells 28:41/No points

In last night's second period slugfest, Dave Schultz and Jack Wells tangled in front of the Salem bench, and the bench emptied when Hal Willis grabbed Schultz from behind. Kilburn (Salem coach) claimed that Creighton (Charlotte coach) struck him from the blind side and both coaches were ejected from the game.

He gained a lot of respect from his peers during is stint in the EHL. He was the only player on that pussified Salem team that would fight anyone at any time. Never backed down from a fight while most of his teammates there would. That Salem team was a joke as far as toughness goes before he arrived. He was the first guy from Salem to finally stand up and challenge/fight that tough Charlotte Checkers team.

Nice job, bj.

Where does someone not-from-Virginia get access to Roanoke World News circa 1967-73? I haven't found it pre-1990 on the web, and so far I've only found 1970-77 on microfilm in libraries in Virginia.

Interlibrary Loan. If you are in a university this is an awesome tool. Go to your university library website and find interlibrary loan, fill out a form for the microfilm you need. Five reels max at a time (Roanoke was one month per reel so I got that in one shot.) You can also do this at your local public library supposedly, but I think you have to pay shipping.

I have the 74-75 NAHL Johnstown Jets and 70-71 EHL Charlotte Checkers waiting at the library if I can get there tomorrow.

By the way, welcome to the site! I will certainly spend time reading yours. If you would like me to send you any of the copies I make from microfilm, send me a pm.

Wow! Thanks, bj! I had no idea you could do microfilm on interlibrary loan. Especially for a month. Awesome.
I will definitely be in touch with you on this.

For those of you who haven't sat in libraries researching you favorite team through old newspaper articles on microfilm, I highly recommend it. So many moments and players to re-remember. So much "new" information that you don't remember at all.

During the 1st intermission last night they did a piece on Schultz. He is being elected to the Flyers HOF this Monday. He said when the Flyers first drafted him and sent him down to Salem he wasn't even a fighter. He had only been in a handful of fights in juniors. His first game he gets into a fight with a guy he knew from the Quebec league the year before (I guess Romanesky going by BJ's articles). Schultz did well. Next game gets into another fight and does well again. From that point on he knew his best chance of making it to the NHL was with his fist, and a legend was born.

Yes, actually. I got the last installment today (the Rebels were eliminated in game 5 against Charlotte on 3/17/70, first round) and I found only one more fight against-guess whom?

Dave Schultz vs. Frank Golembrosky 58:11-Salem @ Charlotte 3/17/70

DAVE SCHULTZ, REBS GO OUT FIGHTING (excerpts)

The remarkable success story of the Salem Rebels ended last night.
The Rebels went down much the same way they came up during the season-scrapping. Those vorcious Charlotte fans who came to the Coliseum last night to watch the Rebels roll over and play dead were disappointed.
Dave Schultz, like all the rest, went out as he came in. Schultz squared off with Charlotte's Frank Golembrosky in the final minuteswhen it was obvious that the Rebs couldn't catch up.
The exhausted Schultz, who had spent most of the evening on the ice, did not floor Golembrosky, but neither did the Charlotte bully drop Schultz. Both ended up with their jerseys torn completely off when the linesmen broke up the final clinch.
"I hadn't been able to fight because we were so short handed," Schultz remarked later, "so I figured I might as well end it with a good fight."
His choice of Golembrosky was not accidental. "He's been trying to intimidate our people all during the series," explained the shooter. "I didn't care whether I won or not, I just wanted to get in a few real good punches." He did.
