Charlie Burns

Charlie Burns was the all-round athlete on the club. Not only was he a tremendous, dogged center in hockey but he could have pursued a career in baseball as well. Burns was working out as a catcher at the Toronto Maple Leaf Baseball training camp in Florida when he told manager Dixie Walker that he was leaving to finish some business in Toronto – which happened to be the Dunlops championship teams of 1957 and 1958.
