Minor Hockey Association. Setting for the face- NHL has 'uniform counterproposal9 Campbell given green light MONTREAL (CP) The National Hockey League has come up with a "uniform counter proposal" to present the rival World Hockey Association in an attempt to bring an end to the strife between the rival profes- sional leagues. NHL president Clarence Campbell said Monday he had received the unanimous consent of all 16 teams m the league to present the proposal Both sides in the lengthy dispute had been scheduled to appear before Judge A. Leon Higgmbotham of the U.S district court in Philadelphia Wednesday for a pretnal conference The judge has set March 28 as the trial date for the WHA's anti-trust suit against the older NHL Earlier, lawyers for both sides had reached a tentative agreement that would see the WHA drop its amount to ISO several concessions and payment by the NHL of million in legal fees already incurred by the WHA During a two-day meetings of the board of governors last week, the NHL failed to reach the unanimous agreement necessary for a try at an out- of court settlement AGREED TO PACT The WHA trustees agreed earlier this year to the proposed pact. Campbell said parts of the NHL's counter-proposal concern the technical language of the agreement He added that other parts concern the WHA's request for the use of NHL buildings, availibibty of players and the proposed 15 preseason games. The original proposed pact included a plan for the exhibition games between WHA and NHL clubs. In addition, the WHA agreed to stop its raiding of NHL players after Aug 1 and to respect the new NHL option clause which gives a player freedom to move to another team only after he has played an option year beyond the terms of his contract. The National Hockey League Players' Association has sent a letter to Judge Higgmbotham asking that the players be allowed to state their position before the judge makes a ruling on the case The NHLPA says it will balk at any steps the two leagues may take towards an interlocking exhibition schedule Al Eagleson, executive director of the NHLPA, said in Chicago last week the standard NHL contract does not oblige the players to play outside exhibitions without their consent, as was done for Team Canada's games against the Soviet Union, Czechoslovakia and Sweden in the fall of 1972.

And today the talented pair continue to live up to their predraft reputations. Potvin was the first choice in the 1973 draft, chosen by the lowly New York Islanders from Ottawa 67s of the Ontario Hockey Association's Major Junior A series The strapping defenceman had enjoyed a phenomenal 1972-73 season with 35 goals, 88 assists and 123 points This season, he is the Island- ers' leading scorer and second highest in the league among rookies with 10 goals and 24 assists for 34 points. Potvin's offensive perform- ance, combined with his defensive skill, has contributed to the New York club's improved showing this season The Islanders now have 13 victories in 49 games, one more than they had during the complete 78-game schedule last season. In addition, the Islanders have sliced 70 goals from their goals-against column to 157 from 227 and have vacated the East Division cellar, a position they held all last season. They will continue their effort to improve tonight when they entertain Minnesota North Stars, while Montreal Canadiens visit the Blues in St Louis Atlanta Flames had second pick in the amateur draft and they chose Lysiak from Medi- cine Hat Tigers of the Western Canada Major Junior League. Lysiak had led the Western league in scoring in both 1971- 72 and 1972-73 with and records respectively He currently is the NHL's leading rookie scorer with 13 goals and 27 assists for 40 points. While right winger Al McDonough is listed ahead of Lysiak in the Flames' individual scoring list, McDonough picked up most of his points while a member of Pittsburgh Penguins this season But neither Potvin nor Lysiak leads in goals scored among NHL freshmen. That honor currently is shared by two relatively unheralded newcomers. Bob Nystrom of the Islanders and Inge Hammarstrom of Toronto Maple Leafs each has 15 goals. Nystrom had a brief trial with the Islanders last season, but spent most of the year at New Haven of the American Hockey League. Hammarstrom, along with defenceman Borje Salming, came to the Leafs direct from Sweden Following are the leading first-year scorers and their to- tals- Lysiak, 13-27-40; Potvin, 10-24-34; Ham- marstrom, 15-17 32, Nystrom, Dennis Ververgaert, Vancouvjr Canucks, Orest Kindarchuk, Philadelphia Flyers, 7-21-28; Ian Turnbull, Toronto, Salming, 1- 21-22 Devils, Welterlich earn easy wins The Red Devils and Welterlich chalked up easy victories in a pair of City Men's Broomball League games staged at the Civic Ice Centre Sunday night Red Devils earned a one- sided 8-0 victory over the Lethbndge Correctional Institute while Welterlich waxed the Knight Clubbers 10- 0 Rudy Fleischhauer led the Red Devils to their eighth win of the season with a brilliant four-goal performance while teammate Tony Wolak chipped in with a hat-trick. Melvin Hudson also tallied a single marker to help Frank Kocsinko register his seventh shutout of the year. League-leading Welterlich recorded their 16th straight victory of the season by walloping the Clubbers Helmut Fomradas and Tom Virostek rifled in a pair of goals to lead the winners while singles came off the brooms of Tom Beresnak, Gus Fomradas, Nick Denecky, Gunner Crawford and John Vaselenak. In other league games staged Sunday, Southern Signs blanked Local 740 2-0, Herman's Upholstery dumped the Fire Department 1-0, Lethbndge Hotel edged Ace Building 1-0 and Sunburst Ceramics defeated Jaycees 2- 0 Hans Koemg tallied twice to pace Southern Signs to their win over Local 740 while Robert Meheden notched the only marked in Herman's win over the Fire Department. Roger McAdam fired in the only goal to give the Hotel their victory over Ace Building while Tom Greenway and Darryl Bosnak scored a goal apiece to lead Sunburst over the Jaycees. Meanwhile defending scoring champion Tom Beresnak still holds a comfortable lead in the individual scoring race. Beresnak has notched 22 goals to hold down top spot while Fleischhauer follows in second with 17 Welterlichs' John Vaselenak and Gus Fomradas sit in third and fourth places respectively with 15 and 11 goals while Walter Duda of Herman's is in sixth with 10 goals ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES NATIONAL East Division W L T F 34 9 6 217 30 12 6 174 25 15 11 186 24 17 10 188 22 23 6 164 19 25 7 169 NY Islanders 13 23 13 119 Vancouver 12 29 8 132 Boston Montreal NY Rangers Toronto Buffalo Detroit SCORING LEADERS Phila Chicago St Louis Atlanta Los Ang Minnesota Pittsburgh California WMI Division W L T F 31 11 7 172 24 11 14 168 22 20 7 140 19 23 9 131 18 24 8 136 15 23 12 152 14 31 5 137 10 36 7 135 A 132 74 131 66 154 61 151 58 171 50 209 45 157 39 188 32 A 100 69 105 62 131 51 148 47 158 44 176 42 185 33 224 27 Chmie E Lund H Morrison M Bermer Q Huck W Campbell V Hughes H Webster NE Backslrom Ch Hmse H French NE 30 27 18 39 24 31 21 33 18 35 15 37 2922 31 19 22 28 16 34 19 30 57 67 57 67 55 33 54 74 53 34 52 16 51 37 50 26 50 19 50 23 49 31 Esposito Bos Orr Bos Hodge Bos Martin But Hextall Minn Ullman Tor Gilbert NY R Park NY R Sittter Tor Dionne Det Golds thy Minn Clarke Phil Robert Buf Cournoyer.
