On This Day May 10th.

May 10: On this day in 1940, Regis "Pep" Kelly was sold to the Chicago Black Hawks for cash. Kelly played 230 games as a Leaf right winger between 1934 and 1940. During his days in Toronto, Kelly chipped in 101 points. Oddly, his output in his rookie and sophomore NHL seasons as a Leaf were identical - 11 goals, 8 assists for 19 points. In four of his six seasons as a Leaf, Kelly scored exactly 11 goals.

May 10: On this day in 1947, Gordie Nelson was born in Kinistino, Saskatchewan. Nelson played three games on defense for the Leafs, all in December, 1969. He was pointless, but recorded 11 minutes in penalties. Gordie Nelson wore jersey number 27 for the Leafs after Frank Mahovlich but before Darryl Sittler.
