Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 20, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, February 20, 1975 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Shultz warned by Mr. Campbell NEW YORK (AP) Dave Schultz, chief bully boy of Philadelphia Flyers, has been warned by National Hockey League president Clarence Campbell that future miscon- duct penalties will cost him suspensions in arithmetical progression two games for the next one, three games for the one after that, and so on. The Flyers probably could ciaatii dislikes ruling TORONTO (CP) John F. Bassett, owner and chief ex- ecutive officer of the World Hockey Association's Toronto Torps, says it is illegal for professional hockey teams not to sign underage junior hockey players if they are good enough. Speaking in a telephone interview from Las Vegas where WHA owners met Tuesday. Bassett said he would never agree to any contract with the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association (CAHA) that would prevent the WHA from drafting and signing 18- and 19 year old survive without Schultz, who has scored just five goals this season. The question is, could the league's United Stales television contract? The NHL hasn't exactly been a hit on television in the U.S. and rumors keep surfac- ing that hockey on the NBC network will be dropped after this season and replaced by the American Basketball Association. One of TV's axioms is that hockey ratings in the U.S. go up when the players' gloves go down and no NHL team fights more than Schultz's Flyers. Hence, Philadelphia is scheduled for four of the 10 weeks that the NBC-TV pairings have been set. Schultz already leads the league in penalties, having spent 362 minutes off the ice so far this season. That puts him on target for a 400 minute season a goal that tough guys of the NHL past never dreamed possible. And don't for one moment think that Schultz is the first rough neck to galumph his way around the NHL. That would be an insult to such noted oldtime belters as Ed- die Shore, Ted Lindsay, Ching Johnson, Ken Reardon, Black Jack Stewart and a host of others who've been known to carry a high stick or two now and then.

Flin Flon and Winnipeg Clubs now have 38 points in the WCHL eastern division. Regina Pats are fourth with 47 points. New Westminster Bruins dumped Medicine Hat Tigers 7-4 in Wednesday's only other game. At Flin Flon, the teams played through a scoreless first period before Reg Kerr and Mel Zinger struck to give Kamloops a 2-0 lead in the second. Jeff McDill blasted two goals and Kim Davis added one for Flin Flon before Darryl Ferner salvaged a tie for Kamloops by scoring at Goalie Mark Earp protected the tie when he stopped Bomb- ers' Rich Gosselin on a break- away from the blue line. In New Westminster, four unanswered goals in the se- cond period gave the.Bruins their win. Medicine Hat led 2-1 at the end of the first period, but New Westminster had a 5-2 third raised the Tigers' hopes, but the Bruins netted two to Bassett said.
