Some interesting names: Jack Lancien, who had some NHL experience, Jim Middleton, who won the 1955 World Championship with the Penticton Vs, goaltender Dave Gatherum who played 3 games for the Detroit Red Wings when Terry Sawchuk was injured in 1953. And on the side of Dinamo Moscow a certain Viktor Tikhonov...

At the same time the improvement from what the 1947 footage shows to the level the 1958 video displays is impressive. Equipment and facilities have advanced as if a couple of decades had passed.
