BORN AUGUST 9TH, 1927, son of Alexander Amess and brother of speed skater, Betty Amess. He was a forward who started the game in 1945 at the practices supervised by Bertie White and Ken Stott. He joined Southern Suburbs under coach Russ Carson, and then 14 games as a foundation member of the Blackhawks, guided by John Tuckerman, Warwick Harrison and Frosty Winter. Not surprisingly then, Ron Amess developed into one of the more knowledgeable players of his time.
