Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 14, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 - THI IFTHBRIDGI HERALD - Tnuriday, January 14, 1971 Deal helps both clubs Wings trade Mahovlich, get three in exchange MONTREAL (CP)-The hockey-playing Mahovlich brothers -Frank and Peter-have been reunited on a National Hockey League team. Frank, 33, joined younger brother Peter on the Montreal roster as the Canadiens completed a deal Wednesday with Detroit Red Wings for the veteran left-winger. Sent to Detroit in exchange for the elder Mahovlich were right wingers Mickey Redmond and Bill Collins as well as left winger Guy Charron. The trade brought an end to many days of speculation that a deal was in the works between the two clubs. "I think Frank will be happy here," said Peter Mahovlich, Smith brilliant against Leafs CLOSE DOESNT COUNT - California Golden Seals goalie Gary Smith watches as puck shot by Brian Spencer (15) of Toronto Maple Leafs rebounds off goalpost during National Hockey League action in Toronto Wednesday night. Leafs and Seals tied 1-1. Commissioner opens event Winter draft under way NEW YORK (AP) - Commissi o n e r Bowie Kuhn opened Wednesday's annual winter free agent draft by reminding participating clubs that the draft has paid off with major league talent in the past. "There were 22 players in major league Lineups last sum- mer who were draft selections in the past two years," the commissioner said. Philadelphia Phillies couldn't have been very impressed. The Phillies, fifth in the National League's East Division last year, were scheduled to pick fifth in the draft's regular Bottlers win in third period In the first game played in the City Recreation Hockey League last night the M and K Generals just ran out of steam In the third period and were dumped 4-2 by Purity Bottling. Meanwhile in the second contest the University of Letiv bridge banged in three unanswered goals in the final period and picked up a 4-1 deci-�ion over the Labor Club. Both the Generals and the Bottlers were short-handed in the slowly-played game. After a scoreless first period both clubs blinked the lights once in the second. The Bottlers came out strong In the final period and slammed in three straight goals before the Generals clicked with five ieconds remaining. Alvin Tietz led the Bottlers with two goals while Mel Mid dleton and Dave Allen chipped in with one apiece. For the Generals Tom Yip and Tex Wiebe managed to put one past Tom Price the Bottlers net minder. The Generals took six of the eight minor penalties called and one of two majors. Barry Willis and Jack Fleming received the majors for a third period tussle. In the other contest Bob Cook started things rolling for the Labor Club as he put them ahead early in the first period. The Chinooks matched the marker before the period ended and the score stood until the final period. It seems the Chinooks always come alive in the final period of play and last night the story was no different. The Chinooks blasted in three markers in the final stanza to salt away the victory. Gary Smith was the top man for the Chinooks as he slapped in a brace while Tim Negrello and Dennis Allen added a goal apiece. The Chinooks also picked up five of the nine minor penalties called in the three periods of play. phase which selected players who had never been chosen before. When their turn came up, they passed. "Frankly, there was no one available that interested us when our turn came up," a Phillies' spokesman said. "We had three names on our list," said Paul Owens, Philadelphia's farm director, "and all of them were picked before our turn came up." PADRES GET NO. 1 One of the players the Phillies were interested in was third baseman John David Hilton of Pearland, Tex., chosen by San Diego Padres as the No. 1 pick in the draft. A total of 127 players were selected in the regular phase of the draft before the clubs swung into the secondary phase, selecting players who had been picked before but returned to the pool of eligibles when they did not sign. Another 145 were picked there, bringing the total for the day to 272. By NICK FERRIS Canadian Press Staff Writer At sax feet, four inches, Gary Smith of California Golden Seals is the tallest netminder in the National Hockey League and at 215 pounds, he's the heaviest. Smith put every inch and pound to work Wednesday night and turned back 50 of the 51 shots as the Golden Seals tied 1-1 with Toronto Maple Leafs. In other games, Chicago Black Hawks defeated Buffalo Sabres' and Pittsburgh Penguins beat Los Angeles Kings, each by scores of 4-2. At Toronto, Smith frustrated the Leafs for two periods, stopping 19 shots in the first and 16 in the second, before Paul Henderson took a pass behind the Seals' defence and broke in all alone on the Ottawa native, beating him with a hard drive into the upper right corner of the net. Henderson's 15th goal this season came about nine minutes after Gerry Ehman gave California a 1-0 lead when he beat Chi Cheng named Paduano wants more to tight MONTREAL (CP) - Roger Larive, manager of Canadian welterweight boxing champion Donato Paduano, said Wednesday he is still $5,000 away from committing his fighter to a title bout against Clyde Gray of Toronto. Promoter RegisLevesque has offered the champion 20 per cent of the gross receipts with a $10,000 guarantee, but Larivee wants' the minimum increased to $15,000 to fight Gray here Feb. 18. NEW YORK (AP) - "Twinkle, twinkle little star" was one of the few English phrases Chi Cheng could say when she came to this country seven years ago. T w i n k 1 e she does-except when she gets' her dander up before a race. A star she is-so much so that the 26 - year - old Taiwan sprinter who cracked four world track records in 1970 far outdistanced nine other competitors to become The Associated Press Female Athlete of the Year. Miss Chi, who recently was married to her American coach, Vincent Reel, drew 572 votes in a poll of AP sports writers and sports broadcasters, nearly 400 more than Debbie Meyer, the record-smashing teen-age swim star who was the 1969 winner. Behind Miss Meyer, who tallied 176 votes, was Margaret Court of Australia who scored grand slam in tennis by winning the U.S. Open, Australian Open and Wimbledon, with 154; and professional golfers Kathy Whitworth, 87, and Sandra Hay-nie, 40. Miss Chi, the first non-American to win the honor since swimming ace Dawn Fraser of Australia won it in 1962, she shattered the outdoor 100-yard world record with a 10 seconds flat clocking and the 220 with a time of 22.7 in June. Toronto's veteran goalie Jacques Plante on a short but quick shot. Plante stopped 35 other California drives. MISSES CHANCE Henderson missed an opportunity to give the Leafs a 1-0 first-period lead when he was blanked by Smith after skating in all alone on the California goalie. The tie gave Toronto 43 points, three fewer than third place Montreal Canadiens and 11 more than fifth-place Vancouver Canucks. California remained in the West Division cellar, three points behind Los Angeles. At Chicago, Pit Martin scored the winning goal and picked up two assists as the Black Hawks came from behind twice to down the Sabres. Trailing 2-1 after 20 minutes the West Division-leading Hawks came back with two sec ond-period goals and scored one more in the final period. TAKE 41 SHOTS Chicago fired 41 shots at Buffalo goalie Joe Daley while Tony Esposito in the Black Hawks net faced 26. Veterans Dean Prentice and Andy Bathgate broke open a 1' game at Pittsburgh, scoring goals within VA minutes of each other in the second period. Kings' goal tender Denis De-Jordy stopped 50 Pittsburgh shots. Al Smith faced only 15 Los Angeles drives in the Penguins'' net. Tonight, Minnesota North Stars play host to Montreal, Toronto meets the Flyers in Philadelphia, Los Angeles travels to Boston against the Bruins, Detroit is at Pittsburgh and St. Louis Blues visit Buffalo.

A club spokesman said Frank will be in the lineup tonight for Montreal. Canadiens' general manager Sam Pollock said he has always been an admirer of Frank Mahovlich and that he was "happy to acquire him." Red Wings' coach Doug Bark-ley said: "When a club is lucky enough to get three players of this calibre, it must give up something good. "It's time to start rebuilding. It is definitely a move in the right direction and a big step in our reconstruction program." The Mahovlich brothers were both members of the Detroit organization together for part of the 1967-68 season and all of 1968-69. Frank arrived in Detroit March 3, 1968 along with Gary Unger, Peter Stemkowski and the rights to Carl Brewer in a trade that sent Paul Henderson, Norm Ullman and Floyd Smith to Toronto Maple Lefas. Peter, 24, played three games with the Wings during the 1965-66 season. He divided his time from the 1966-67 to 1968-69 sea-< son among the Wings and their farm teams' at Pittsburgh, then as a member of the American League, and Fort Worth, of the Central League. TRADED IN 1969 He was traded to Montreal along with Bart Crashley June 6, 1969 in exchange for Doug Piper and Garry Monahan. Frank broke into the league with Toronto Maple Leafs and won the Calder Cup, as the NHL's rookie-of-the-year. A veteran of 14 NHL seasons, he scored 404 career goals, including 14 so far this season. His jest year was 1968-69, when he fired 49 goals and added 29 assists for the Wings. * I: 1960-61, he scored 48 goals for the Leafs and two seasons later, the late Jim Norris, then owner of Chicago Black Hawks, offered Toronto $1 million for Mahovlich. The Leafs politely declined. Last year, "lhovlich fired 38 goals and added 32 assists for Detroit and so far this year he has 14 joals and 18 assists in 35 NHL games. Redmond, 23, broke into the Canadiens' organization in 1967-68 arte a brilliant junior career with Peterborough Petes of the Ontario Hockey Association Junior A series. In 40 games this season with Montreal, the Kirk)? id Lake, On'., native scor~d 14 goals and 16 assists. Last season, he missed only one of the Canadiens' 76 games and tetted 27 goals with assists on another 27. Collins, 27, was acquired by Montreal from Minnesota at last summer's annual NHL meetings. Used primarily as a penalty killer by the Canadiens, the Ot tawa native scored six goals to r"� v"'i two assists in '.O games Last season with the North Stars, he scored 29 times while assisting on nir.-: others.

He was sent down to Montreal Voyageurs, the Canadiens' American League farm t-a.-i and notched five goals and 13 agists in 18 AHL games. Barkley, who was appointed Detroit coach last week replao ing Ned Harkness, who was named Wings' general manager, said the acquisition of the three players "could very well put us into the playoffs, which are not out of reach yet."
