Hello Jukka,

The 1956 Kitchener-Waterloo Dutchmen (Dutchies) pre-Olympic exhibition tour games was an easy one to find since they played just 3 exhibition games before the Olympics and 3 games after the Olympics.

They took a 3-week break from their OHA Senior A schedule, playing their last game Saturday night, January 14, 1956, beating the Windsor Bulldogs 5-2, before their hometown standing-room-only crowd of 7,200. And it was also just their second win in the past 8 games. With only a few hours sleep, the Dutchmen were up shortly before dawn Sunday morning (January 15) to depart by plane from Toronto's Malton Airport enroute to Scotland for an exhibition game in Paisley Monday night (Jan. 16).

The K-W team fly home to Canada after the 9 February game. And that is all of the K-W exhibition games from 1956, Jukka. Hope this helps.
