Foyston's versatility was proven by his selection in various years to the PCHA First All-Star Team at three positions - left wing, center and rover.

Manager Querrie has been after Frank Foyston, the old Toronto star, and late of the Coast League. Frank is billed as the captain of the Arena team.

Foyston is sterling forward. His nursing of the puck when on the attack was a treat to watch, and he was just about the best man on the ice. Walker had a barrel of speed, and still packs that old poke-check that made him famous with the blueshirts years ago.
