Orr, who missed 14 games, was the only unanimous se- lection and received 120 points from the veiling mem- bers of the Professional Hockey Writers' Associa- tion in the eight East Division cities. Park, out for 20 games with an injury, polled 43 to" earn a berth on the squad which will face ihe West Di- vision selects in the league's 26th annual game in New York's Madison Square Gar- den, Jan. 30. The two other starting de- fence spots were filled by Guy Lapointe and Serge Sa- vard of Montreal Caaadiens. Four other Canadiens, goalie Ken Dryden, centre Jacques Lemaire, left-winger Frank llahovlich and right-winger Vvan CourDOyer. were also named to the team. Voting was based 03 five points for a first-place choice. three for a second and one for a third. Following are the voting resulis for the 12 players r.smed. with vote total in brackets: Goal Ken Dryden, Mon- treal Gilles Villemure, NY Rangers Defence- Bobby Orr, Boston Guy Lapointe. Montreal Brad Park, NY Rangers, Serge Savard, Mon- treal Centre Phil Esposito. Boston Jac- ques Lemaire. Montreal Right wing Yvan Cour- noyer, Montreal Rene Robert, Buffalo Left- wing Richard Martin, Buf- falo Frank Mabovlich, Montreal Boston's Tom Johnson, whose Bruins won the Stanley Cup last year, will coach the team. He is to pick seven more players to complete his rosier of two goal-tenders and 17 defencemen and for- wards. The West Division team, to be announced Thursday, will be coached by Billy Reay of Chicago Black Hawks. Orr, who polled 120 points on 24 first-place choices, will be playing in his sixth all- etar contest. Dryden, also close to a unanimous choice with 114 points is a doubtful starter for the game. Canadiens an- nounced Tuesday that the lanky goalie will be out of ac- tion for about two weeks be- cause of a back injury. CourDoyer is another fnem- ber of the Canadiens who is currently hurt and remains sidelined with an abdominal injury suffered against Min- nesota N'orth Stars Jan. S. Closest balloting for the all- stars was at defence where the fourth player Savard Rod Selling of New York Rangers by only two points. Robert won the second right-wing position by four points over Selling's team- mate, Hod Gilbert. Robert and Lapointe will be making their first appear- ances in the annual classic while M a hovlich's parQopa- rioa will be his liih, second only to former Detroit Red Wings great Gordie Howe who appeared in 22 of the first 24 contests. Mahovlich is tied for sec- otd place in the all-time all- star scoring parade with for- mer Detroit and Chicago winger Ted Lindsay, and Bobby Hull, the former Chi- cago star now with Winnipeg Jets of the World Hockey As- sociation, each with 10 points. Howe is the leader with 10 goals, eight assists and 13 points, all records. Esposito has been in four all-star games while Park and Coumoyer are scheduled to play their fourth game. Results of the current poll are for participation in the all-star game only and do not cctmt in the vote at the end of tbe season for the official league all-star teams which are selected from all 16 teams, rather than by divi- sion. r Organize "dribble series Proiighorns plan contest Steve Carlton losses a ball as he lalki wilh Philadelphia HIGHESr PAID PITCHER Phillies' generol manager Poul Owe-is arte r signing his 1973 contract.
