Today in history: January 6

January 6 in Indianapolis hockey history
1957: The Chiefs win a thriller at home against Toledo. Bob Bowness scores with 21 seconds left to tie the game, and then Pierre Brillant finishes a hat trick by scoring 12 seconds into OT while he was being tripped
1962: The Chiefs and Fort Wayne Komets play a bizarre doubleheader in Fort Wayne. They play the regularly-scheduled game, which the Chiefs won 6-2 thanks to two goals from Garth Hayes. Then, they complete a game from Dec. 13 that was shortened by a brawl. It was initially ruled a 3-2 Komets win, but the IHL required the final 8:34 to be played with Fort Wayne leading 3-2. The Chiefs scored three goals after the resumption, with Bill Wilkes scoring twice in a 5-3 Chiefs victory. In the Allen County Coliseum, 4,432 witness the festivities. 

Craig Hamner: Defenseman for the Racers in 1974-75. He was the team's second-round pick in the 1974 Amateur Draft. He had one goal in 27 games with the Racers. He also played parts of two years with the Racers' farm team in Mohawk Valley. A native of St. Paul, Minn., he is 66.
