More Honors for Art Dorrington

Here's a more detailed article on Art Dorrington, his induction into the African American Ethnic Sports Hall of Fame, and his work with the Art Dorrington Ice Hockey Foundation by John McGourty at Well worth the read...

According to the Jan 27, 1958 Utica Daily Press Dorrington' leg was broken when he "collided with Clinton Coach Ed Calhoun who drew a five-minute penalty tripping." Dorrington had a two-and-a-half hour operation to put a pin in his fractured femur. According to the attending doctor "he (Dorrington) is through playing hockey for this season. He should be able to play next year, however."
