Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 7, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, February 7, 197? BOOK YOUR DISNEYLAND EASTER VACATION NOW Fot all your travel ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL Centre Village Mall Phone 328-3201 -The Herald Sports Three western leagues are doing their best to control it Is there a remedy for violence in hockey? By JOHN SHORT The Canadian Press Some attempts have been made recently to reduce vio- lence in hockey but spokesman for three Western Cana- dian leagues agree there is no way to predict what work. Ed Chynoweth of Saskatoon, president of the Western Canada Hockey League lays most of the blame on coaches. Ed Young of Saskatoon, president of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League says players are influenc- ed into using violence by the fans. And Don Drummond of Red Deer, secretary-manager of the Alberta Junior Hockey League, says, the way to control such violence is to impress upon the minor league players that fighting and stick swinging will not be tolerated. Chynoweth said that in his league, 38 games in suspen- sions have been handed out to players and.29 games to coaches, "and that wo'n't be allowed to continue." "The coaches, managers and owners must realize the prosperity and popularity of our league is at stake." OWNER FINED Chynoweth fined Patty Ginnell, owner of Victoria Cougars, last .month for threatening to pull his team from the ice. Ginnell protested but paid up after Chynoweth instructed Kamloops Chiefs not to travel to Victoria for a scheduled game unless Ginnell obeyed the order. But generally, Chynoweth is pleased with the conduct of his league. "We haven't had a stickswinging incident this year. We haven't had an all-out brawl in which both benches emp- tied. Penalty totals in the WCHL are higher than in recent years, but Bob Strumm of Saskatoon, league statistician, says it's because almost every club has one or two players drawing the bulk of the minutes. An example is Jerry Rollins of Winnipeg Clubs, who has 399 minutes in penalties with seven weeks remaining in the regular season. The record, set last season by Ted Olson of Edmonton Oil Kings, is 435 minutes. Ginnell's Cougars, leaders in the Western Division, hold a big lead in penalties, with New Westminster second, Brandon Wheat Kings third and Kamloops Chiefs fourth. "There's no doubt the B.C. faction is rougher than tlie said Strumm. "The problem is that some coaches use a player just as a goon. If you could legislate that out of existence, you'd have much of 'the problem solved." A spokesman in Ontario says the WCHL is far rougher than the top two eastern leagues, especially the Ontario Hockey Association Junior A series, where a rule impos- ing heavier penalties on aggressors has been rigidly en- forced. Tough rules also exist in the WCHL statutes but are not often called. An Alberta Amateur Hockey Association rule calling for an automatic game misconduct to those involved in fights has received mixed reactions. "I loved it at said Drummond. "Now I hate it." The league has had several bench-clearing fracases in the last few weeks "but the threat of the game miscon- duct worked for a while." In recent games, coach Doug Messier of the league- leading Spruce Grove Mets has been involved twice in scuffles with fans. The Mets already have set a league record for team penalties and Tony Lecuyer has established an individual penalty record. "Because the rule worked so well in the beginning, I'm convinced it's a matter of said Drummond. "I think players in minor hockey should be convinced it's a no-no to get involved in fights and the benefit would re- main with them the rest of the way. Young said many SJHL fans attend games in hopes of seeing a brawl. "They go to the pub first and come to the game. If that's what they want to do and if they pay for their tickets, we can't control it, unless they get involved with the players." As part of his league's crackdown, Young has insisted that referees impose a match penalty for butt-ending or spearing. Eight have been called this season "and most years we don't get more than SJHL players who receive three misconduct penalties in the season are automatically suspended for one game. A player who receives five of them are for lipping off at sent to Young for dis- ciplinary action. Young, however, admitted he may have been too lenient with coaches. Rollie Wilcox of Yorkton Terriers and Les Mueller of Humboldt Broncos each defied the authority of the referee by pulling his team from the ice. Each was fined, Young said, but maybe that wasn't enough. "I should have suspended them. Now that it's getting closer to playoffs, that's what I'm going to be doing."

(Specializing in English cars) Prompt front end service Phone 327-5406 THE CANADIAN PRESS Boston Bruins are proving virtually unbeatable at Boston Garden, but their critics are becoming more daring every day. 'Centre Phil Esposito, needing just one point to reach the 100 mark in bidding for his sixth consecutive National Hockey League scoring cham- pionship, is a favorite target of hecklers. Now, an opposing coach has come out with the statement that 26-year-old super star Bobby Orr is not. the dominat- ing force he once was for the Bruins. Charlie Burns, an assistant coach who directed Minnesota in the absence of head coach Jack Gordon, made the assessment of Orr Thursday night after the Bruins con-' tinued their mastery at home over the North Stars with a 3-2 victory before fans. "I don't think teams come here with the fear of God any said Burns, a long- time NHL player. "I think they feel they're capable of doing things here. I don't think Boston is as feared as it used to be. "Orr is not the Orr of old. His knees won't let him be. He used to own the game. He still does to a certain extent, but he used to be up and down the ice all night. Now he just seems to pick his spots." In other NHL games Thurs- day, New York Rangers beat Philadelphia Flyers 3-1 in a penalty-filled match -while. Kansas City Scouts defeated Toronto Maple Leafs 3-2 and New York Islanders tied Buf- falo Sabres 2-2. Despite Burns' assessment, Orr provided a good show. He set up Bobby Schmautz for the first goal 52 seconds after the opening faceoff. Then, with Minnesota in front 2-1 late in the second period, he stole the puck to help Don Marcotte score his 23rd goal of the sea- son. Greg Sheppard got the winning goal In the third period. While the Bruins were in- creasing their home-ice record to 17-0-4 over Minnesota since the North Stars joined the league in 1967, Esposito was blanked. He was a key target of harsh remarks and heckles by some fans. "I feel so sorry for Phil said Bruins' coach Don Cherry. "My heart bleeds for him. They're on him continually. It's a damn shame. It's very discouraging." At Philadelphia, Brad Park broke a 19-game personal scoring slump to score for the Rangers in the third period, breaking a 1-1 tie and Jerry Butler added an insurance score. The first period took an hour and two minutes to play while referee Wally Harris was busy sorting out the fights. Harris ended up assessing 22 penalties for a total of 94 minutes. The Rangers were assessed 49 minutes and the Flyers 45. Included among the first-pe- riod penalties were three game misconducts, five fighting majors, a pair of dou- ble minors and one for playing with a broken stick. The Flyers' Dave Schultz and Reggie Leach and New -York's Steve Vickers were ejected from the game. Schultz faces a one-game suspension if NHL president Clarence Campbell follows up his threat to suspend him one High school season nearing completion Three races are all over in Southern Alberta high school basketball circles, and another two might as well be. Catholic Central Kittens and Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute Clipper Queens finish- ed the regular season tied for top spot in the Lethbridge High School Girls' League with 3-1 records, statistics released Thursday show. Both races in the Far West, League are also completed, as St. Michael's Dragons took home the boys' crown with an 8-2 regular season Nobleford Bladettes captured the women's title with an un- blemished 10-0 log. Elsewhere, Cardston teams are still undefeated as the Southern Alberta 4A Boys League approaches its conclusion. The Cardston Cougars and Wildcats both have 10-0 records as they run away with the varsity and junior varsity divisions respectively-.

RED DEER (CP) Don Renner of Taber Golden Suns has become the first Alberta Junior Hockey League player to surpass the 100 point mark this season, but his ac- complishment has been overshadowed by the record breaking performances of two members of Spruce Grove Mets and by the Mets as a team. Statistics released Thurs- day show Renner with 103 points on a league leading 54 goals and 49 assists. He is 17 points ahead of Ron Rose of Drumheller Falcons who leads in assists with 61. Meanwhile, Keith Hertz of Spruce Grove, 17, has broken the records for most goals and points in one season by a defenceman. Hertz, llth in the scoring race, has scored 31 goals eight more than the previous high set in 1973 by Roger Bourque of Calgary Canuck's and has 70 points, surpass- ing the previous high of 62 also set in 1973 by Dale Booth of Drumheller. Tony Lecuyer of Spruce Grove has amassed 307 minutes in penalties to break by four minutes the record set last year by Brent McCracken of The Pass Red Devils. The Mets have minutes in penalties, breaking the'mark of they set last year while stationed in Ed- monton. Lecuyer, Hertz and the Mets have 12 games remaining in which to add to those totals. Dave''Scott of Calgary is third in the scoring with 82 points, one more than Barry Lassiter of Red Deer Rustlers and Randy Joevenazzo of Taber. Julian Baretta of Spruce Grove maintained his lead among the goaltenders with a 3.87 goals against average and two shutouts. Team-mate Tim Thomlison is runner up with a 4.01 average.
