In 1951 several Royals players joined the Brockville Magedomas in the New York-Ontario League. The Magedomas won the league championship for the next three years. In 1954 Sam went to Scotland and played for the Dunfermline Vikings in the British League. After one year, he returned to Kemptville and played for the Royals for two more seasons – in 1955-56 taking the St. Lawrence League Championship and winning the Citizen Shield.
Sam joined the Ottawa OldeTymers hockey organization in 1984 and played with them for fourteen years. In addition to playing three or four times a week in Ottawa, the OldeTymers played in tournaments across Canada and notably in the Snoopy Tournament in Santa Rosa, California, a tournament financed by Charles Schulz, the creator of Peanuts and Charlie Brown.
