Tuoidny, February 52, 1972 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 9 Both past century murk in scoring race Ratelle sticking to Esposito like glye NEW YORK (AP) Where Is Phil Esposila's missing as- sist? That was llie question both- ering National Hockey League officials Monday after the weekly scoring statistics showed Boston's Esposito and New York's Jean Ralcllu tied for the lead with 102 points each. The Bruins, you see, thought Esposilo had 103. "I can only go by the report we get after the said Ron Andrews, the NHL's stat- istician. "Our figures stow Esposito and Ralelle both with 102." The missing assist is proba- bly somewhere in the mail be- tween Minneapolis and Mont- real on the official scorer's report of Saturday night's game between the Bruins and North Slars. Boston won the game 6-4 and originally, Esposito had no points credited to him. Dick Dillman, public relations director of the North Stars, was so impressed with the de- SAAR plans ice racing The Southern Alberta Auto Racers have come up with what is a first for south Albertans. Sunday at two o'clock at Park Lake SAAR, in co-opsration with CJOC Radio, will stage an ice race. H is hoped stock cars, dune buggies, sports cars and other means of transportation will take part in the one-day affair. The races are open to anyone who is interested in racing their car. The lake has been cleaned off and there is ample park- ing. Meanwhile, the SAAR will hold their regular meeting Wod. nesday evening in the club's new room at the Letlibridge Hold. All club members are asked to be on hand for the gathering in the basement of the hotel. It is also expected Ihot R number of interested people uill he on hand as a 1 film on ice racing will be shown. WINGS SIGN BOUCIIA DETROIT (CP) Detroit Red Wings have signed Henry Boucha of the United States Olympic Hockey team to a con- tract for the current National Hockey League season, Wings' general manager Ned Harkness announced Monday. fensive Job Minnesota did on the Boston star that he praised the checking line in his Monday release. "I sit three seals away from the official said Dill- man. ''Unless there was a change that I'm not aware of, Esposito didn't get a point.' When the Bruins arrived in Chicago for Sunday after- noon's game against the Eagleson cotnmenls on WHA Parent could ignite move TORONTO (CP) Alan Ea- gleson, executive-director of the National Hockey League Play- ers' Association, said Monday night if Bemie Parent signs n-ilh Miami Screaming Eagles of the fledgling World Hockey Association it could create a flood ol signiiigs by NHL play- ers. Eaglcson, commenting on re- ports earlier in the day that Parent, a goaltender with To- ronto Maple Leafs of the NHL, would sign with the Screaming Eagles lliis weekend for a re- ported over five years, said1. "If Parent announces he has signed it will be a major move not only for the WHA but for every player in Ite said Eagleson. "They've all been hanging back waiting for the first one to sign. "I think we'll see Winnipeg start a major effort to sign Bobby Hull. If Winnipeg gets Hull, it would automatically be- come as good as most NHL franchises News of Parent's pending as- sociation wilJi the Screaming Eagles was disclosed earlier Monday in Philadelphia by the Toronto player's lawyer, How- ard Casper. OTHER LEAFS CLIENTS P a r e n t's team-mates, Jim Harrison and Jacques Planle, are also said to be among Cas- per's clients. NHL president Clarence Campbell said in Toronto late Monday night the league would take whatever action necessary, including going to court, to pro- tect the contracts ol their play- ers. Asked what damage had been done by Leaf president Harold Ballard, who was reported re- cently lo have told Parent to gel what he could from Miami de- spile being under contract to Toronto till the end of the 197t 73 season, Campbell replied: "The Parent case is unique. 1 have a feeling any effort to gel an injunction against him or the opponent mighl be difficult be- cause of the statements made by Mr. Ballard." Ballard, however, said the statements attributed to him were not exact and that what he actually told Parent was "when your obligations are completed with the Maple Leaf Hockey Club the only thing I can do is wish you good luck." "I also told him to get his last week's salary from them (Miami) guaranteed in a trust company or said Bal- lard. Parent renegotiated his con- tract with the Leafs last fall. Ballarrl said that Parent wanted his salary paid a different way think lie wanted it sent down to Ihc some details were still lo be worked out. i Campbell, however, saw the picture differently. "I have on file In my office a contract between Parent and the said the NHL presi- dent, "which extends through next season. The contract has a proper reserve clause. "I don't give a damn aboul this (verbal) one. As far as I'm concerned he hasn't dcmon- stralc-d any reason why the con- tract on file isn't valid." Ahearne okays TORONTO (CP) Bunny Ahearne, czar of Ihe Interna- tional Ice Hockey Federation, confirmed Monday that Can- ada's hockey professionals and European teams may engage in exhibition matches sometime year. Fred Page, Canada's vice- president on tlie intF, told The Canadian Press during the re- cent Winter Olympic Games in Sapporo, Japan, that such an exhibition arrangement was in the making, possibly as early as May. Ahearne added, however, ho doubts Canada will return lo compete at an international level because conditions thai prompted the country to with- draw in 1970 have not changed. The HKF president, enroute to his London, England, home from Japan, confered here with Charles Hay, head of Hockey Canada, a government agency, and was lo meet with Clarence Campbell, president of the Na- tional Hockey League. "We might be able to get an exhibition series with the pros." the 72-y e a r -o 1 d semi-retired Ahearne said, adding that UIP team could be comprised ol NHL players. "Of course, that was all signed, scaled and delivered last year bul it fell through be- cause Hockey Canada and Ihe Canadian Amateur Hockey As- sociation wouldn't go through with it." He said arrangements were completed last fall for the Rus- sian national team to play in Canada against the pros and that Avery Brundage. Interna- tional Olympic Committee pres- ident, had decreed the series would no; tarnish the Russians for Olympic competition. Black Hawks, It was an- nounced that a late change on the last Boston goal had added an assist for Esposito. The point was his 100th of tha season, the writers were told. When Espo scored Iwo goals and an assist in Boston's S-L victory over the Black Hawks, the writers, using second grade addition, credited him with 103 points. R a t e 11 e 's three points Sunday night in New York gave him 102, and, the writers wnle, one point less than Esposlto. Then came the official NHL release Monday showing the tie and that's when the miss- ing assist became an issue. NHL rules do not permit scoring changes after a game ends. If there are changes on any goal, they must be re- ported by either the team cap- tain or alternate lo the time- keeper at ice level who in turn is supposed to relay the information to the official scorer. The Bruins say they re- quested the change on their last goal Saliu-day night. Un- less it shows up on the official scorer's sheet, it will be clas- sified as missing in action.
