He fought O'Reilly like a month after that also in Boston and did an excellent job and also fought and beat Ken Hodge
Vickers was typical of most Rangers of that era, more willing to live off their early reps and fat wallets.
On the plus side for Vickers, there were a couple of incidents where he showed some balls. For one, he did come out of the penalty box to challenge Schultz when Schultz was finding few takers. Unfortunately, that fight never came off. He also saved Carol Vadnais
from taking a serious beating from Bob Gassoff
by being the third man in and getting tossed. He tried to get Billy Smith
in the 75 playoffs but Dave Lewis
quickly jumped in.
In addition to the Marcotte, O'Reilly, and Hodge fights, Vickers put a pretty good beating on Len Frig
. Not that Frig was any great shakes. What had to be Vickers worst loss was the beating he took from Brad Maxwell
. Not that there's anything wrong with that, Maxwell was a great fighter.
