With that being the case, what is the NHL's loss is Lethbridge Broncos and the Western Canada Hockey League's gain. At 18 years of age and 5' 11" Trottier figures to be one of the top juniors in Canada. To say the Bronco organization is pleased he will wear Lethbridge colors is an understatement. "We're said Bronco coach Earl Ingarfield and his sentiments were doubled by club president Bill Burton at a press conference hosted by Bill Styner of Labatt's Brewery Tuesday evening. Ingarfield went on to say that Trottier is an exceptional young player. Indicated, he added, by the fact New York Islanders of the NHL drafted him second while he was 17 years of age. A second announcement at Tuesday's gathering was that CHEC Radio will broadcast, with exclusive rights, the Bronco road games and possibly a few home games, depending of course on their importance. But the big news was Trottier. Accompanied by his father Buzz and mother Mary, Trottier caused the Broncos, as well as A! Arbour, coach of the New York Islanders, a few anxious moments. "We had tried to reach him since the said Ingarfield. Not knowing that the Trottier's had left Saturday to visit relatives in the U.S. on their way here. The planned meeting of the Broncos and Arbour with Trottier was set for four o'clock Tuesday. "When he didn't arrive at four we were stated Ingarfield. However, at the Trottier's arrived and what can only be described as a mutual admiration society began. Said Trottier Tuesday, "we got caught in the 55 mile an hour traffic in the States. We were heading here, have no fear." Trottier for just turning 18 and heading for year three of his junior career, is a very poised young man. He has a great deal of confidence in his ability, but stays completely away from being cocky. "Certainly I was disappointed at not turning he said. His remark was not an attempt to slight anyone. "The islanders braced me for the news I would be playing another year of junior in the Trottier continued. "I just wanted the experience, some advice on my hockey future." Now he knows he will get it. Under Ingarfield, and in the Bronco organization he has gotten to know so well in two past seasons, Trottier is confident he will be ready for pro next year. "I'm really happy to be playing here in he assured the gathering. "With Earl as coach I will get to know the Islander system. Earl can teach me what I need to know. He watched me play last year on a few occasions so he will know in what phases of the game I need improvement." If statistics and past history are any indication, Trottier has very little to learn and not much more growing to do despite his young age. He laughed when he admitted hitting 200 pounds this spring. He's down to 190 now after some riding at home on the family ranch at Val Marie, Sask., pitching a few bales and three weeks of hockey school. In his last year in the WCHL at Swift Current Trottier was the second leading scorer on the club with 41 goals and 72 assists for 113 points. He hopes to improve on that. But mainly he's looking to mature in preparation for the pros. He knows he has to work hard. His philosophy, in his own words is, "work your guts out and things will come easier. You can do things you never thought possible with hard work. Trottier comes from a very close family. Besides his parents, he has two sisters, Carol 20 and Kathy 15 and brothers Monty 13 and Rocky 10. Rocky is the next big goal-scorer in the Trottier family. He just recently scored seven of his team's eight goals in a game at hockey school says Bryan. Bryan, his dad and Kathy form a little musical group. Bryan's dad says, jokingly, that Bryan plays bass but needs a few guitar lessons. Trottier won't have to worry about guitar lessons as long as he has his hockey talents in tune and all indications are that he definitely will. Ed Chynoweth of Saskatoon, WCHL president, summed it up as well as anyone in describing Trottier: "The entire league will benefit from his staying in the WCHL. He is a great asset to the league." So now it is that Bryan Trottier will wear Lethbridge Bronco colors. As Ingarfield said in his introduction of his young star, "gentlemen meet Bryan Trottier of the Lethbridge Broncos."

She won the amateur cham- pionship in 1957 in Montreal and is one of the favorites in this year's tournament.
