Nick “Rocky” Rukavina, Clip 3

A telephone interview with hockey player Nick “Rocky” Rukavina from 2001. He played for the Philadelphia Ramblers of the Eastern Hockey League for 4 years in the 1950s. He was from Kapuskasing, Ontario, and he returned there when his stint in the EHL was done, and has lived there ever since. This clip became part of the CBC radio piece I later produced.

I actually saw Rocky play out at the Arena in Philly in the 50’s. It was a Cub Scout trip. Back then you could get up front and personal with the players. I was born in 1947. Rocky was the Star player...Ken Rudzinski
