  • Notes 
    • Isaac "Ike" H. Master.

      He was born in Plattsville December 20th, 1897 and moved to Berlin in 1907.

      His hockey career started in high school followed by becoming a star player on the Berlin Union Jacks in 1915-1916, one of Ontario's outstanding Junior teams. He enlisted in 1915 and while overseas played for Canadian Army baseball teams. Upon return home in 1919, he arranged a meeting of several baseball enthusiasts from neighbouring towns which culminated in the formation of the Inter-County Association, on which he was an executive member for some years. He played Senior baseball with Kitchener 1919-1925, with Preston 1926, Kitchener 1927-1930. He also managed the Kitchener team in 1928-1930 which always made the playoffs against very strong competition.

      In 1919-1920 he organized and then managed and played for the Kitchener Intermediate Hockey Club which won the Ontario Championship in 1922. After another year, this club, being the first Kitchener team called the " Greenshirts," played senior hockey in the strong Big Four Group, which consisted of Stratford, Galt, and Preston. He continued as the manager and a player for several years.
