Seattle Breakers 1980

January 11th, 1980 — The assignment was to get bench shots of Seattle Breakers players during their game against the New Westminster Bruins in Queens Park Arena but for some reason the picture that ran in the paper is the one above showing #17 John Neeld being congratulated by Tim Hunter after scoring the winning goal in overtime. Neeld never made it to the NHL but Hunter did playing over 800 games in a 16 year career. The bench shots are below with only one, the first, identifiable as possibly John Neeld.
