Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 4, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THI IfTHBRIDOE HERALD Tutitley, Jnnliory Trade with Hubs finally looks good Redmond paying Wings dividends MONTREAL (CP) A year- old trade between Ihe Red Wings and Montreal Canadicns appears to be paying dividends lor the Detroit National Hockey League entry loclav. Last Jan. 13, the Canadiens sent Mickey Redmond, Bill Col- lins and Guy Charron to thr Wings in exchange for lef winger Frank Mahovlich. The move paid off for the Canadiens when Mahovlich proved an asset as Montreal DANGEROUS.FALLS Falling ie an inevitable part of learning to ski, so learning how to fall is important to the beginner. Some falls are mil. n more dansersous than others. The best way to fall is to the side holding your skis together, so that they, remain parallel during the fail. You should be relaxed, however, not too relaxed. Any fall where you go frontwards over the tips of your sXis is danger- ous. If this happens try to throw your weight sideways to come Beginners will often fall, relax and then let themselves con- tinue to fall, especially if the fall is backwards and of the som- ersault nature. This is where it is important not to be too re- laxed as it is very easy to catch a tip and have the ski apply too much pressure to the leg. Again, try to throw yourself sideways toprevent this. The third type of relatively dangerous falls is where, the skis spread-eagle and your weight goes forward between them. This is dangerous even at slow speeds and you must try to jump out of it. Sugar Kings host Canucks Weather permitting the Lelh- bridge Sugar Kings will seek to strengthen their hold on the fourth and final playoff berth in the Alberta Junior Hockey League when they entertain Calgary Canucks tonight at Henderson Lake Ice Centre. Game time is set for but morning weather warnings may force postponement if Calgary is unable to travel. Kings are currently four points up on Drumheller Fal- cons and Edmonton Movers. The locals have 20 points which puts them in fifth place in the seven-team league. Cal- gary Cougars, league-leaders, will not take part in the play- offs due to the use of over-age players and thus the Kings hold down the last playoff spot. In their last meeting with the Canucks, in Calgary, the Kings saw a third period letdown cost them a 5-4 verdict. Kings will be without two players tonight. Ross Smith is sitting out the second game o[ a three-game suspension while Mike Clarke has been called up to the Calgary Centennials of the Western Canada League The Joss of Clarke will hurt the Kings. He is the club's lead- ing scorer as well as the an- chor man on the Kings' de- fence. Smith, until his unfor- tunate altercation two -weeks ago, had given the Kings the added punch they needed. A solid forward, Smith made his presence felt. Kings will be at home this weekend for a pair of games. Saturday night they meet the Red Deer Rustlers at and Sunday the Drumheller dub at two. There's talent says Patrick MIAMI, Fla. (AP) Lester Patrick, named last month as general manager of Miami Screaming Eagles, says finding talent for the World Hockey As- sociation club will not be diffi- cult. "There are plenty of hockey players out Patrick, 31, said in an interview. "Not all of Jiem are of National Hockey League calibre, but then not all of those in the NHL are players of any NHL calibre before ex- pansion." won the Stanley Cup, while De- troit wound up in last place in the seven-team East Division behind newly-formed Vancouver Canucks and Buffalo Sabres. But the Red Wings, flounder- ing out of playoff contention again early this season, showed signs of coming to life last week with three victories and much of the success can be attributed to the three former Montreal players. Redmond, a native of Kirk- land Lake, Ont., turned 24 Dec. Dryden's problem a disc? MONTREAL (CP) Ken Dryden, Montreal Canadiens1 goaltender, was to undergo spe- cial X-rays today for -what he says is tension on a diso in his back. Dryden suffered the back in- jury in a National Hockey League, game Dec. 22 against the Toronto Maple Leafs when he dashed out of his goal to break up a breakaway attempt by the Leafs' Norm WLman. "Apparently there is tension on a disc and they're trying to get rid of the pressure on Dryden says. The special X-rays are being tried because regular X-rays have revealed little since he was injured. Since then the six-foot-four- inch netminder has played in only one 5-1 Joss to New York Dec. 26. "Dryden was probably our most aggressive man out there coach Scotty Bowman said after that game. START WORK EARLY Meanwhile, Bowman declared Monday the team's practices would start at 8 a.m. from now an end to what he called Canadians' "executive hours." Canadiens' p.r a c t i c e usually stalls at 10 a.m. "Maybe after coming in with the workers for a while, they'll realize just how lucky they Bowman said. The Canadiens have been in a slump since Dryden's injury- managing only one win in their last five games. The injury makes standing difficult for Dryden and sitting can be so flat on his back on a hard surface is the only way he is comfortable. When the pain became worse, trainer Bob Williams gave him ice treatments, heat treatments, "every kind of treatment but rest" the trainer lamented dur- ing the weekend.

He celebrated his birthday two days later in Buffalo by scoring two goals and adding an assist to lead Detroit to a 7-3 win against UK Sabres. Charron scored the winner in that game. STREAKS INTO Then, on New Year's Eve, Redmond again provided the firepower, scoring two goals in ii 6-3 victory over California Golden Seals. He carried his streak with him into 1972 by scoring another two cluding his night as the Wings defeated Montreal 6-4 in Detroit. That gave Redmond six goals and an assist to lead all scorers during the week. His splurge vaulted him to a share of 15th place in the individual scoring race from 28th spot one week earlier. Collins helped the Detroit cause with a goal and three as- sists. Redmond's total of 20 goals equals his entire output of last season and is only seven short of his personal high of 27 which he recorded in 1969-70 with Montreal. The surge left Detroit with 36 points, eight fewer than fourth- place Toronto Maple Leafs, but 20 short of the East Division York Rangers. ESPOSITO HITS 30 Elsewhere, scoring leader Phil Esposito of Boston Bruins reached the 30-goal mark for the fifth consecutive season, but saw his goal-scoring lead shrink to two. Rookie Richard Martin of Buffalo scored four goals last three Sunday against the raise his season's total to 28. No rookie has ever had such a fast start as Martin. Team-mate Gilbert Perreault, last season's rookie-of-Uie-year, had 16 goals after 40 games and ended up with a record 38 for the season. If Martin continues his current pace, he will finish with 55 goals. Esposito continues to occupy top position in the scoring race with 64 points, three more than Jean Ratelle of New York, who leads in assists with 39. Boston defenceman Bobby Orr is third with 55 points, one more than Vic Hadfield and two more than Rod Gilbert, both of New York.

He hopes to be out of action "just for a few days" but nei- ther he nor Dr. David Mulder will know for sure until they can find out more about the na- ture of the injury. The Oanadiens had a day off Monday while Bowman mapped strategy and decided on the 8 a.m. practices. He said executive starting hours for the team's practices and 11 have blurred the players' perspec- tives. When someone shows up at 10 a.m., he tends to forget the ardors of traffic jams, break- fasts on the run and the early- to-bed early-to-rise regimens, he said. MINNEAPOLIS (A P) Czechoslovakia, with six differ- ent players scoring goals, stunned champion Russia 6-1 Monday night in an amazing finish to the first annLal World Cup hockey tournament. Beaten twice by the United Slates and an 8-3 lower to Rus- sia in the first round of a double round-robin at Colorado Springs, Colo., the plucky Czechs pulled a complete rever- sal of form. They combined su- perior teamwork, close check- ing and a 31-save performance by goalie Miroslav Krasa to hand the Russian's their lone defeat. The Czech national club champions, with four members of their country's Olympic team on the squad, scored two goals in each period. Champ feels sharp Frazier concerned about Daniels? NEW ORLEANS (AP) Heavyweight boxing champ Joe Fraiier stormed through a brief workout Monday and said he wasn't taking challenger Terry Daniels lightly. The two meet Jan. 15 for the world boxing championship. "I feel said Frazier. "I've been working hard five weeks. Tin not taking him (Daniels) any lighter than any other fighter." Frazier was up at 5 a.m. Monday for the trip from Phila- delphia to New Orleans and lim- ited his workout to a little over 30 minutes. The champion, who weighed 214 Monday, said he felt "pretty sharp" and will get in several rounds of sparring today and later this week. BOXED 130 ROUNDS He said he has boxed 130 rounds in preparation for the bout with Daniels, "as many as for any fight I've had." Yank Durham, Frazier's man- ager, said the champ probably would enter the ring against Daniels at 208. The challenger expecls to weigh between 192 and 198. Frazier, who has not fought since defending his title against Muhammed All last March, agreed with Durham that was nothing to reports tie will] fight All again this summer in Los Angeles. "I'm going to get Terry Dan iels out of the way then take a said Frazier. Asked how long he thought the fight with Daniel's will go Frazier replied: "I always want the guy to stumble climbing into UB ring and end the figtit right there." Daniels followed Frazier into the gym and ring set up In the penthouse of a French Quarter hotel and sparred four tough rounds with Sonny Moore. Doug Lord, Daniels' trained, said Daniels was sharp, but "nol as sharp as I'd like him to be." Fitzsimmons keeps word PHOENIX (AP) When Phoenix Suns dropped a 111- 110 decision to Houston Rock- ets here Dec. 11, cosch Cotton Fitzsimmons solemnly prom- ised his players they would be fined the next time they lost to a team under .500, Sunday night the Suns dropped a 116-111 decision to Atlanta Hawks and a short time later, Fitzsimmons kept his promise. He fined every Sun who played in the the He fined the Moore and Nfeal "It seems to Filzsim- mons said Monday, "that if you can stop a 10-game win- ning streak by Boston, you should be able to keep an At- lanta losing streak going."

Fitzsimmons handed the centres double fines for allow- ing Walt Bellamy to score 30 points, pick off 21 rebounds and generally do pretty much as he pleased. Zaleski, iBenecick lose jobs EDMONTON (CP) Joe Za- leski and Al Benecick were fired Monday as assistant coaches with Edmonton Eski- mos of the Western Football Conference. Head coach Ray Jauch said he lias given no thought to re- placements. He gave no reason for the dismissals. The Eskimos missed the play- offs in 1971, finishing last iji the WFC. In 1970, they finished sec- ond, earning Jauch the coach of the year award in his rookie season. When he took over he hired Zaleski who had been fired from Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Be- necick who was an outstanding lineman with Saskatchewan Roughriders. Zaleski had spent 12 years with Winnipeg, the last two as head coach. He began his coaching career in 1956 with the Sarnia Imperials of the now de- funct Ontario Rugby Football Union. Prior to entering the coaching field, Zaleski had shared quart- erback duties for three years with Jack Jacobs of the Blue Bombers. His final year was played1 with Montreal Alouettes of the Eastern Football Confer- ence. Benecick was an alt-star line- man with Saskatchewan Rough- riders of the WFC for 10 years before retiring in 196a. In 1969, IK came out of retirement to join the Eskimos as an offensive guard. He was offered the posi- tion of assistant coach in 1970.

Griffith also cited the reduced attendance, with the team fail- ing to draw one million fans fit home for the first time in its 11 seasons in Minnesota. While most players will re- ceive the sad financial news in tho mail soon, the stockholders meeting Jan. 28 will be told that Uie team lost money last year. Griffith said he is estimating the loss at "but all Uw auditor's rcpoits are nol in yet."

"I had to give Ccsnr Tovnr n raise for 204 hits, and Bert Dlylovcn for winning 16 garnet. Uwmoo Killebrcw and I are talking around the same figure he got last year. Tony Oliva signed a two-year contract last season." Killebrew was paid around last season, when his home run production dipped to 20. But he lead the league in runs batted in with 119.
