S Factors: The Carnegie brothers, Ossie (left) and Herb (centre) played their hockey in 1943-44 for the Timmins McIntyre Miners of the Porcupine Mines Senior A league League, working in a machine shop when they weren’t on the ice. This was them in 1944-45, when they played for the Shawinigan Cataracts of the Quebec Provincial Senior Hockey League, skating with Manny McIntyre (right), as they had in Timmins. “I was both a scorer and playmaker,” Herb Carnegie recalled in his memoir, A Fly In A Pail of Milk, “Ossie combined excellent positional play with a wicked shot and Manny took no guff from anyone.” The three played on as a line with the Sherbrooke Randies/Saints in 1945-46, 1946-47 and 1948-49. Herb Carnegie was named the QPSHL’s MVP in ’47, ’48 and ’49. (Image: La Presse fonds, BAnQ Vieux-Montréal)
