Punch Imlach considered the number "11" lucky. He had assigned Leaf sweater number eleven to Ron Ellis in 1964-65, and the rookie responded with an excellent season. So Imlach gave another promising rookie the number 11 sweater for the 1965-66 season. While Ron Ellis changed to number eight, Punch handed 11 to BRIT SELBY. SELBY, ironically, had played with Ellis on the Toronto Marlboro junior A team. The previous season, BRIT had scored 45 goals and 88 points in 52 junior games. In 1965-66, the Kingston Ontario native lined up on left wing for the Toronto Maple Leafs. There must have been something in that lucky number 11, as SELBY enjoyed a most respectable rookie season -- 14 goals, 13 assists and 27 points, and was named the CALDER TROPHY winner, defeating Bert Marshall of Detroit.
