Gray keeps crown TORONTO (CP) Clyde Gray was happy to hold on to his Commonwealth wel- terweight boxing title Monday night, but he'd rather lay bricks for the small amount of money involved. "If I can get some big pay- days, I'll be there, but I'm not going to fight for peanuts any the Toronto fighter said after earning for his defence against Jamaican Bunny Grant Grant, who said he had suf- fered pulled or bruised stomach muscles, failed to answer the bell for the ninth round and Gray was awarded the fight on a technical knockout Grant came here with a record of never having been knocked off his feet in 84 pro- fessional fights, but Gray put him on the canvas in the sixth round. However, Gray said Grant was a tough opponent. NOT WORTH IT "It was pretty tough boxing and it sure wasn't worth the money I'm gonna get out of said Gray who was guaranteed against 25 per cent of the gate. A crowd of about showed up for the 26-year-old Canadian champion's first Commonwealth title defence. "I was hoping for a lot bigger crowd said Gray who had said last week he planned to retire if he didn't soon see some big purses which he believes can only be won by taking the world title from Jose Napoles of Mexico. Gray lost a decision to Na- poles last year in his first world title bid but is hoping for another chance at the crown. "I'm not going to fight for peanuts any more.

HOME AND OFFICE SAFES Esposito makes short trip to plateau MONTREAL (CP) When all-star centre Phil Esposito of Boston Bruins recently became the 10th player in National Hockey League1 history to record points, it took him 164 fewer games to reach that level than any of his nine predecessors. Esposito, the league's leader in goals scored and total points so far this season, picked up his 100th point of the current campaign last week against California Golden Seals and then reached the 1000-pomt mark of his career at Vancouver last Friday in a 4-2 victory over the Canucks. His point came in his 745th regular-season game. The previous fewest number of games needed to collect points was 909 by Bobby Hull when the left winger was with Chicago Black Hawks. Here are the number of games it took each of the other eight players to record their point in NHL regular season games: Jean Beliveau, Montreal Ca- nadiens, 911, Stan Mikita, Chi- cago, 923; Gordie Howe, Detroit Red Wings, 938; Frank Mahovlich, Toronto Maple Leafs, Detroit, Montreal, Norm Ullman, Detroit, Toronto, 1113; John Bucyk. Detroit, Boston, Henri Richard, Montreal, and Alex Delvecchio, Detroit, Esposito closed last weeic with an assist Saturday at Los Angeles against the Kings, boosting his point total for the season to 103 and a 16-point edge over runner-up and teammate defenceman Bobby Orr. It marked the fourth con- secutive season Esposito has gone over the 100-point mark and the fifth time in six sea- Bees win sons. He missed the 100-point level by one point in 1969-70. With 23 games left to play in the 78-game schedule, Esposito could conceivably finish with 146 points at his current pace, which would be six short of his record 152 points in 1970-71.

It was announced today that Vic Stasiuk will be in attendance at the memorable evening as will a full contingent from the Medicine Hat Tigers of the Western Canada Hockey League headed by president Joe Fisher Stasiuk and the Medicine Hat group will join Monsignor Athol Murray, Frank Boucher and Scotty Munro at the head table The evening has been planned to honor Bruchet who has given more than 40 years of his life to hockey in Lethbridge and Southern Alberta. It is hoped that a number of former players with the old Native Sons will be on hand as well as a large gathering of the many friends Bruchet made over the years. Stasiuk, a prime example of the local boy who made good, received his early hockey tutoring from Bruchet and went on to play in the National Hockey League with the Boston Bruins and Detroit Red Wings. One time in his career Stasiuk belonged to the highest scoring line, the Uke Line along with Bronco Horvath and Johnny Bucyk. Stasiuk has had a fling at coaching in the NHL ranks with Philadelphia Flyers and then with the Vancouver Canucks. He is now associated with the St. Louis Blues' organiza- tion as an assistant coach. He currently handles Denver Spurs of the Western Hockey League for the Blues. The Fisher-Bruchet combination goes back to the days of the old WCHL when one of hockey's fiercest rivalries involved Bruchet's Native Sons and Fisher's Tigers West rinks tops SAINT JOHN, N.B.

Only Red Kelly lasted two complete seasons, leading the Kings into the National Hockey League playoffs in their first two years of existence. Kelly, Hal Laycoe, John Wilson, Larry Regan and Fred Glover have come and gone. When Bob Pulford was hired for the 1972-73 season, he was the team's sixth coach in six seasons The Kings still seek their first taste of playoff action smce Kelly he's now with Toronto Maple Leafs as Pulford approaches Kelly's longevity mark. fttlford said the fate of his predecessors doesn't bother him. "I don't think about that I to do the best job I can and I know the players are doing the best they can. If we get a few breaks, I think we can make the playoffs." He doesn't believe there's anyone after his job, and the only pressure he feels is the natural excitement over a close race. Pulford, who retired as a player after seasons, 14 of them at Toronto, coached the Kings to a club record 73 points last season when they finished sixth in the Western Division. The Kings, who lost to Boston 5-2 Saturday night, try to break a three-game losing streak tonight against Vancover at the Forum, and climb as high as third place hi the standings. "It's going to be a four-team race don't forget sixth- place Minnesota e..1ranely close right down to the Pulfcrd predicted Polford still kicks himself for failing to make the playoffs last season. "1 think the lesson we learned last year will help he said. "We depended too much on home games. We got used to that good schedule and, at the end, we used it almost as a cratch. "Our schedule this year is very similar to last year, but we've still got to win." Of the Kings' last 22 games, 15 are on home ice. Until months ago, the Kings seemed to be going nowhere, but they became tough to beat, raising eyebrows with victories over St. Louis and Atlanta on consecutive days on the road Feb. 9-10. "Everyone's contributing to the team playing good said Pulford. "We've had extremely good goal-tending from Rogie Vachon and the defence has played very well." The team's penalty killing has been "very Pulford said, "but onr power play hasn't produced as wen as it should." "Eventually it will come. We had a very good power play last year and basically we have the same players here this year." Pulford said the biggest trade since he became coach was the acquisition of forward Frank St Marseille from St. Louis last season. Last December, the dub obtained three New York Rangers and last week added a fourth, centre Gene Carr, in exchange for "future considerations." "Toe trade that brought Mike Murphy, Tommy Williams and Sheldon Kannegiesser has given as much more balance on our lines, and Kannegiesser has played well on said Pulford.
