Introducing the 1956-57 American Hockey League for Power Play Hockey! Six teams, all farm teams for the NHL. I chose this season as a heartfelt tribute to Don Cherry, who played for the Hershey Bears this season. He finished second in penalty minutes behind teammate Larry "The Rock" Zeidel. True story, Larry wanted to finish on top in the penalty minute race and was second behind "Grapes". Well Cherry took a penalty and in a fit of "looniness", Zeidel skated to the penalty box, ripped the door open and hurled it onto the ice. Referee banished him for the game and therefore got his wish, penalty minute leader of the AHL. Inspiration for the season came from the great CBC movie "Keep Your Head Up Kid-The Don Cherry Story".
