Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta April 9, 1974 THE LCTHBHIUGC MCHALU More there than just Sobchuk Scouts interested in Regina Pats REGINA (CP) Professional scouts have been following Regina Pats of the Western Canada Hockey League closely all season although they realize the Pats' best player, centre Dennis Sobchuk, is not available. Sobchuk, 19, signed a contract for about million to be spread over 10 years before the 1973-74 WCHL season started He's scheduled for delivery to Cincinnati when the developing World Hockey Association franchise gets off the ground. With Sobchuk out of consideration, the scouts seem even more interested in following the club Two reasons are Greg Joly, a nifty Blazers try Chipperfield VANCOUVER (CP) The Province says centre Ron Chipperfield of the Western Canada Hockey League Brandon Wheat Kings has been offered a three-year contract, starting next season, by the Vancouver Blazers of the World Hockey Association The morning newspaper says the contract would apparently net Chipperfield more than the million 10- year deal the new Cincinnati WHA club gave to Regina Pats' Dennis Sobchuk Chipperfield's lawyer is reported holding out for a five-year deal, the Province says defenceman, and Clark Gillies, a rugged winger Both already have been named in a supposedly-secret draft by the WHA, but they agreed in an interview that this doesn't mean they'll sign quickly "It's good to know you can play said Joly, 19, who joined the club at the same time as Gillies and Sobchuk three seasons ago "We'll wait-at least, I'll I see if the National Hockey League makes an offer." Gillies expressed the same opinion "I might like to play for an expansion team, because then you'd get lot of ice time. Not like playing for Boston or somebody, where you might have to sit on the bench or go to the minor leagues." HE'S TOUGHEST Gillies weighs almost 220 pounds and is acknowledged as the toughest man in the rugged WCHL Joly, at 175, sometimes is accused of lacking aggressiveness "Fighting isn't my Joly said. "I need the puck a lot I like to skate with it He admitted some weaknesses defensively, "but I'm improving every year So is Gillies, he collected 113 points during the regular season although coach Bob Turner, former NHL standout with Chicago and Montreal, says he's mclmded to loaf "When Gillies is hitting Gillies is scoring 'On the night he doesn't hit anybody, he might as well sit in the stands Turner granted, however.

Phone 262-2839 HEARING AID CENTRE 212 Lougheed Bldg., Calgary that Gillies' inept nights occur less and less frequently "and when he isn't playing well by his standards, any coach in junior hockey would take him" Gillies faces few physical challenges, which enables him Sport Alberta unrealistic EDMONTON (CP) An opposition MLA charged Monday that some youths participating in lacrosse, rugby and Whitewater canoeing will be excluded from this year's Alberta Summer Games because of an "unrealistic" decision by Sport Alberta. Roy Wilson (SC Calgary Bow) said outside the legislature the executive committee of Sport Alberta has decided that transportation and accommodation grants for the Games will be made available only for participants in sports played in all seven sports zones in the province The decision to limit financial support to sports played in all seven zones is not realistic, said Wilson, who raised the matter in the legislature with questions to recreation minister Horst Schmid "Can you imagine Whitewater canoeing in East- Central Alberta1'" Mr Schmid said in the legislature Sport Alberta, a government-funded agency, wanted to make sure a sport was played across the province and not just in one or two places He added the government does not plan to interfere with any decision by Sport Alberta, which was set up to handle grants to coast sometimes. "I don't think I'm moody, sometimes I can't get going, but that's true of everybody." Gillies has spent three summers playing 11 a baseball, development league at Covington, Va., but those days are over. "Maybe I'd rather play baseball, because the money is good and the living is great, especially in the majors, but there are too many kids 17 years old coming right out of high school who play as well as I can Gillies and Joly typify the reaction of the Pats, who lead Saskatoon Blades 3-2 in a best- of-seven eastern division semi-final they could wrap up tonight, when they insist Sobchuk is their outstanding "He does more things better than said Gillies "He amazes me, but he's not the only top pro prospect on this club The Pats will lose nine to graduation this spring, which makes the next month or so increasingly important Joly, Gillies and the rest are focusing on the Memorial Cup final scheduled to start May 5 in Calgary "There are dozens of scouts at the Memorial Cup said Joly "That's a good thing We want them to see all the good prospects on this club, not just those like Sobchuk who have signed or those who have been drafted Bob Charles just short WASHINGTON (Reuter) New Zealand's Bob Charles picked up Sunday for winning the Greensboro Open, but the jackpot left him short of the top 10 in 1974 United States golf tour earnings, the Professional Golfers Association reported Monday Charles, winning his first U S tournament since 1967, increased his total to this year 'SALE!
