The Entertainer, as he was known in his days with Toronto Maple Leafs, used to frustrate coach Imlach with his failure to take National Hockey League lach, now coach of Buffalo Sabres, acquired Shack from Los Angeles this season, eyebrows were raised, But Shack revealed in a recent interview that he now is working harder than ever and I Stan Fischler's LEN CHALMERS RANDY ANDREACHUCK These two Lethbridge Sugar Kings will see action tonight and Sunday afternoon at the Arena in Alberta Junior Hockey League play against Edmonton Movers and Maple Leafs. It'll be the Kings' first action of the New Year. Kings at home for two games Lethbridge Sugar Kings will be out to start off the 1971 schedule of the Alberta Junior Hockey League belter than they finished the 1970 part of the year. Kings will be at home to Edmonton Maple Leafs tonight at 8:30 and will entertain Edmonton Movers Sunday afternoon at two. Both games are set for the Arena. Sugar Kings had their problems as the 1970-71 seas o n reached the halfway mark. Rod Laver after third grand slam NEW YORK (AP) - Rod Laver, the world's best tennis player who won more than $200,000 last year in limited play, is going after everything in sight this season, but not because of the money. "I never gave the money a thought," said the slender Australian southpaw as he disclosed Thursday that he will seek an unprecedented third grand slam. "I like money, but you don't have to be poor to be a hungry player. I like the idea of a third grand slam, and if the money goes along with it, that's tremendous. "In 1970, I didn't enter either the Australian or French championships. For the new year, I have entered not only all of the major tournaments, but will be playing in the Philadelphia Tennis Festival in February and the Grand Prix." Laver, who won the four major tournaments-French, Australian, Wimbledon and U.S'. open-in 1962 and 1969, is ready to begin his quest Saturday against Ken Rosewall in the opening match of the $210,000 Tennis Champions Classic at Madison Square Garden. Laver beat Rosewall for the title last year and pocketed $57,500. His f i v e -s e t match against Rosewall Saturday is a $10,000 winner-take-all affair that kicks off the 12-match U.S. tour. Other players on the tour are Tony Roche and John New-combc, Pancho Gonzalez, Arthur Ashe, Roy Emerson, Roger Taylor and Tom Okker. Coach John Chapman was suspended for 10 games after pushing Red Deer Rustler coach Alf Cadman in a game played in Red Deer two weeks ago Kings also lost four points, which dropped them into fourth place in the six-team, in the committee rooms. S'ugar Kings used Dave George in a weekend sweep of the Rustlers but were forced to relinquish the four points they earned as George was ruled ineligible. Alberta Junior League officials ruled that the two games must be replayed but the Rustlers want the four points awarded to them. At present the situation is still up in the air and the Kings remain in fourth spot while the Rustlers lead the league. - Manager Syd Hall will handle the duties of coach for the locals until Chapman's suspension is lifted. Kings will have to start the New Year on a better note than they finished the old year if they are to get back in the bat-tie for top rung on the Alberta Junior Hockey League ladder. Meanwhile in the only game played on New Year's Day the Red Deer Rustlers pressed Calgary Cougars' goaltenders hard to take a 6-3 victory. Rustlers peppered Scott Darling and Gordon Lealke with a total of 53 shots and built up period leads of 3-2 and 5-3. Darling was replaced in the second period after taking a hard shot on the chest. Wynn Dempster and Dave An-drewkiew each scored twice for Red Deer with others coming from Doug Stumpf and Mickey Girard. John Huber, Dar roll Goss and Rob LeGuillox were the Calgary marksmen. Red Deer took 11 of 21 penalties. Game misconducts were handed out to Calgary's Jack Pozzo and Mickey Unger of Red Deer for fighting while another fight was in progress. Dale Henwood had a relatively easy time in the Red Deer nets compared with the Calgary goaltenders. He turned aside 30 shots. Inside Hockey lifliiiiiiiiiii^ I7D SNIDER, the dapper owner of the Philadelphia Fly-ers, was recently asked to forecast what the National Hockey League would look like in 1984. With Orwellian insight, he observed1 that there would be a lot more Americans playing and that he wouldn't be surprised if the czar of Canada's National pastime was a U.S.-born citizen. If anything, Snider was being conservative in his outlook. Judging by current trends the NHL should be thoroughly Americanized by the next decade. In fact, many observers believe that this development will take place much sooner. Obviously, it wasn't always this way. Hockey was invented and improved in Canada by people like Frank and Lester Patrick. It thrived in Vancouver, Winnipeg, Victoria, Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa for years in the early part of the century before the ambitious Americans "discovered" the sport. What has happened since then to the NHL should stun every Canadian chauvinist to the core. Toronto, for one, has become impotent on the ice and in the league's high-level conference rooms. While still relevant, the Montreal ice lobby can and often is overwhelmed by the sheer force of numbers-12 American owners, including Medicor, Inc., which runs the Vancouver Canucks - against it. Minor hockey ACT dropped a 5-4 exhibition hockey verdict to the Midget Reps with Gary Craik, George Irvine, Randy Jocvenazzo, Dennis Hatt and Derrick Blasco scoring for the winners. Heg Osmond notched two goals for ACT with Miles Fox and Joe Meli adding the others. Free Pick-Up And Delivery Of Your Car! AIL WORK PERFORMED BY EXPERIENCED WORKMEN! LETHBRIDGE SH and DOOR Cor. 5th Ave. and 4th St. S. Phone 327-1581 ? ? * Hockey's new power brokers are William M. Jennings and William W. Wirtz, bosses of the New York Rangers and Chicago Black Hawks, respectively. They deal quietly, behind-the-scenes but those familiar with the business that is big-league hockey realize that they form a dynamic duet. "Jennings and Wirtz are the most powerful hockey men today," said an NHL official who has had regular dealings with the governors, "because each time a major decision is made it reflects the position of Jennings and Wirtz." One such major decision revolved around the NHL's agonizing problem in the mid-Sixties over whether or not to expand the way other sports had done. Time and again League President Clarence Campbell filibustered against the move. Both Canadian teams seemed content with the status quo. But when Jennings began touting expansion in the mid-60s Campbell did a complete about-face and became so ardent an exponent of the move west Horace Greeley would have blushed in envy. Little by little in the mid and late Sixties, Jennings' behind-the-scenes moves began chipping away at Canadian power over hockey and the Americanization of the NHL soon became a "fait accompli." A key move was establishment of a lavish New York NHL office, less than a block away from Madison Square Garden. In charge of that bastion is Don V. Ruck, former Connecticut newspaperman, who owns the relatively new title of NHL vice-president and who is regarded as Jennings' first lieutenant. * * * Having an American base with Ruck in command has tended to dilute what power and influence Campbell possessed although Campbell has reiterated time and again that he functions at the pleasure of the owners, a fact which is quite obvious to the world: The NHL head office still is in Montreal, but Campbell has admitted on television that a major reason for keeping it there is to allow the league to operate under the more relaxed Canadian anti-trust laws. In some quarters it is believed that Ruck, an American, as vice-president, is the natural heir-apparent to Campbell. Others counter that he lacks the credentials. When he first was hired by the league as its public relations director, Ruck was scorned by veteran journalists. But he won many of them over with his ability to get things done and his 20-hour work day. One of his first public relations moves was helping to organize an NHL writer's association. In the financial realm he created NHL Services, a money-making unit which dispenses league authorized decals, games and similar products, Ruck also became the league's liaison man with the Columbia Broadcasting System, which televises the NHL "game of the week" from January through May. It is doubtful whether a Canadian nationalist such as Conn Smythe ever would have permitted an American such as Ruck to obtain so much power so fast. But Conn was succeeded by his son Stafford and was consumed with problems closer to home. Meanwhile, Frank Selke eventually was bumped off the Montreal scene and the Canadiens' spokesman became David Molson. ? ? * Tlie constant swing to the "American-way-of-doing-things" continued through the present season and some of the moves blatantly suggest a distinct aloofness towards the Canadians. Except for the annual June draft meetings in Montreal nearly every vital governors' conference is held in New York. At a meeting earlier ,in the Fall the league appointed a New Yorker, Frank Torpey, to head its new security division. Needless to say Torpey's office is in Manhattan. From time to time, other Canadian cities make overtures about entering NHL but they seem: pathetic in relation to reality. Edmonton was the most recent bidder but Campbell-speaking for the owners-has told this reporter that no other Canadian city could be considered for further NHL expansion because of a combination of geography, size and economics. If any further expansion is to take place it is expected to involve two more American cities. The next most meaningful shift in the NHL's power balance will involve succession to Campbell's job, when and if he ever retires. Insiders insist that several league governors would like Campbell out immediately but he has steadfastly refused to step out and the bosses are reluctant to fire him. The strongest Canadian contender for the job could be R. Alan Eagleson, the Toronto attorney, who is executive director of the NHL Players' Association. Eagleson delivered a surprisingly mild "No" when asked if he'd be interested in succeeding Campbell. enjoying the game more. He* demonstrated the point Friday' by scoring two goats and assisting on another to spark a comeback by the Sabres against Boston Bruins. But the rally fizzled in the face of the powerful Boston scoring machine and the Sabres succumbed by a score of 9-4 in the only game played Friday. Johnny McKenzie and Ken Hodge each scored twice in the first period and Dallas Smith and Derek Sanderson each added another goal early in the second to give Boston a 6-1 lead. But Shack, who had assisted on Gil Perreault's first-period marker, scored twice and Gerry Meehan added another early in the final period to pull the Sabres back. Buffalo goalie Joe Daley couldn't hold out against Bos-J ton's 40-20 shots-on-goal advantage and allowed two more goals by Fred Stanfield and one by Don Marcotte. HELD OFF ORR Daley, however, did manage to keep league scoring leaders Phil Esposito and Bobby Orr at bay. Esposito managed only one assist and Orr two. Veteran left-winger Johnny Bucyk collected five assists. The win allowed the Bruins to widen their East Division lead to three points over New York Rangers, who could close the gap again tonight with a win over the Penguins at Pittsburgh. The Bruins are idle, but in other games, Detroit Red Wings visit Toronto Maple Leafs, California Seals meet the Canadiens in Montreal, Vancouver Canucks play host to St. Louis Blues, Chicago Black Hawks play the Flyers in Philadelphia and Minnesota North Stars take on the Kings in Los Angeles. Sunday, Montreal is at New York, Boston at Philadelphia, California at Detroit, Chicago at Buffalo and St. Louis at Los Angeles. The play of the two Boston right wingers, Hodge and McKenzie, Friday pointed out a tlireat to the all-star status of veteran Gordie Howe of the Red Wings. With less than four weeks to the All-Star game in Boston, Howe is not among the top ten scorers and could be overlooked for the star right wing spot which he has held on first- or second-team chokes for the last 21 seasons in a row. Hodge, meanwhile, is the third highest scorer in the league and McKenzie fifth. "It really is pretty, hard to go by our two guys when you are talking about all-star right wings" Bruins coach Tom Johnson said after the victory in Buffalo.- Tony Esposito, Chico Maki, Jerry Korab and Louis Nanne all have two things in common. They played in the National Hockey League's only two games Thursday night and they're all from Sault Ste. Marie Ont. Maki scored two goals and Korab one as Chicago dumped Detroit 8 - 3 in front of the goaltending of Esposito. Nanne scored the only goal for Minnesota as the North Stars fell 4-1 to Pittsburgh Penguins. PITTSBURGH 4 MINNESOTA 1 First Period - 1. Pittsburgh Bathgate 7 (Blackburn) 1:35.

Aberdeen pads lead with win GLASGOW (CP) - Aberdeen moved three points clear at the top of the Scottish League First Division when it beat Dundee 3-0 in the traditional News Year's Day soccer program. Aberdeen, favorites to displace Celtic as Scottish champions, won for the 13th successive match and has not conceded a goal in their last 10 games. Aberdeen is three points ahead of Celtic, whose game against Clyde was postponed because of snow. The shock result of the day was the 3-1 defeat of once-mighty Rangers, a confidence-sapping result in view of its meeting with Celtic Saturday. Rangers lost to Falkirk and the teams meet again in the third round of the Scottish Cup on Jan. 23. Cowdenbeath, bottom of  the First Division, gained its first home win of the season by beating Dunfermline 2-1 and Ayr United eased its relegation worries with a 2-1 victory over Morton. Alex Ingram celebrated his return after a spell willi English club Nottingham Forest by scoring one of the goals.
