Bruins Trade Doug Mohns to Chicago for Ab McDonald

June 8, 1964 - The Boston Bruins acquired Ab McDonald, a left wing, and Reggie Fleming, a wing and defenseman, from the Chicago Black Hawks today for defenseman Doug Mohns (left) in an NHL trade. The deal was made as the league opened its annual meeting in Montreal.

McDonald and Fleming, both 28, have been with the Black Hawks since 1960-61, the season the Hawks won the Stanley Cup. They had been sold to Chicago by the Montreal Canadiens.

Mohns, 31, has 11 NHL seasons behind him, all with the Bruins.

The 6-2, 190-pound McDonald played on a line with Stan Mikita and Kenny Wharram last season and made 14 goals and 32 assists in 70 games. He scored 20 and 22 goals his two previous seasons.

Fleming, 5-10 and 180, a rough type who is affectionately known as The Horse to Chicago fans, specializes in killing penalties. He also draws them. He spent 140 minutes in the penalty box last season.

Mohn had nine goals and 17 assists in 70 games. Tommy Ivan, general manager of the Hawks, said he wanted Mohn because “he’ll add punch to the Hawk attack.”
