Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Tuesday, February 6, 1973 Could have mow money in WHA Guidolin simply stuck around BOSTON (CP) - Armand (Bep) Guidolin could have been making more money in the World Hockey Association, but because he thought lie owed Boston Bruins something, he stuck around-now he's coach of the defending Stanley Cup champions "I could have made more money but-and I know this sounds corny-I believe I owe it to the Boston organization to stay with them," Guidolin said last year after signing a two-year contract to coach Boston Braves, the Bruins' .American Hockey League farm team. Harry Sinden, Bruins managing director, announced Monday that Guidolin was being elevated to succeed Tom Johnson who has been moved upstairs, to an administrative job with the National Hockey League club. Guidolin, 47-year-old former Bruin player, said he had offers Coming your way soon; A chance to do exciting things. A chance to go places. See your military career counsellor.

The Canadian Armed Forces, Give it some thought. from WI-IA clubs last year. At the same time, he recognized the possibility of liis move up, although he downgraded rumors which had been circulating last winter before Johnson led the Bruins to their 1972 Stanley Cup victory.  ALL TALK "That's all newspaper talk as far as I'm concerned," Guidolin said last summer. "I didn't hear a word about it. "A coach is hired to be fired. I've accepted this philosophy. A man can't coach the Boston Bruins for the rest of his life. If I move up I know the day will come when they'll want to replace me. "But Tom had a tough assignment. He carried it out well. The pressure will be on him again next year to repeat." Guidolin, a native of Thorold, On!., who grew up in Timmins, has a long history of devotion to hockey and the Bruins. "When I was a kid in Timmins, I always liked Boston. Most of the other kids liked Toronto or Montreal. I don't know why I picked Boston-perhaps it was because of the name-Bruins, bears." MIL AT 16 Guidolin was only 16 when he first started plajing with the Bruins and he still holds the record for being the youngest player ever in the NHL. He played with the Bruins four seasons before moving on to Detroit Red Wings and then Chicago Black Hawks. He I scored 107 goals and 171 assists [ in nine NHL seasons. After leaving the NHL. he drifted around the minor leagues as a player, scout, coach and referee. He was coach of Oshawa Generals in 19G6, the year all-star defenceman Bobby Orr graduated to the Bruins from the Generals. The Generals were then a junior club sponsored by the Bruins and when Guidolin took them to the Memorial Cup final against Edmonton Oil Kings, the coach refused to play Orr because the defenceman had a groin injury. Guidolin was afraid . Orr might suffer permanent damage by playing with the injury and the Generals lost the championship final to Edmonton. After Oshawa, there were brief coaching stints with Bar-rie Flyers in the Ontario Hockey Association Senior A series and London Knights of the OHA Junior A loop before Guidolin signed to coach the Braves in 1971. The Bruins' sometimes relaxed attitude toward practice sessions may become a thing of the past if Guidolin holds to his stated belief in hard work. "Hard work-that's what's needed," Guidolin said last summer as he looked forward to his second season with the Braves. "I know what hard work is all about, both in and out of hockey. I've driven trucks and pulled pulpwood in Kapuskas-ing. I worked in the warehouse for Ontario Hydro. I worked un-dergroiuid in the mines at Timmins. "I know what work is all about and anyone who plays for me had better be prepared for lots of it." ABSOLUTELY AL 4 DAYS SALE HELD OVER THROUGH SATURDAY, FEB. 10th English & Scotch Woollen Co. Ltd.
