(CP) There'll ba a provincial team trophy up for competition in the 1971 Canadian Winter Games, scheduled for next month in Saskatoon. City officials announced Tuesday they have accepted terms from the Canadian Fitness and Amateur Sport directorate to turn the $2,000 Centennial Cup ever for competition in the games. The cup, constructed primarily of wood, is 36 inches high and weighs about 70 pounds. The late Robert S. Kent inau gurated the cup as a personal centennial project, then turned it over to the city when it became too big an undertaking for one man. Mr. Kent, who died in 1970, had hoped the trophy would become the top prize for Canadian amateur hockey, but a city committee decided it' should be used to promote amateur sport in general. Wednesday, January 20, 1971 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Giacomin has trouble with first few shots It was evident which team wanted to win most BOSTON (CP) - New York goalie Eddie Giacomin has trouble handling initial shots in all-star games. Evidence-Chico Maid, playing his first all-star game and on his first shift, scored at the 36-second mark and the West was en route to a 2-1 win over the East in the 24th annual National Hockey League all-star game Tuesday night. Dean Prentice scored for the West in the 1970 game at St. Louis with his side's first shot at Giacomin, again In the East goal. But the East won 4-1. Two years ago at Montreal, Giacomin entered the game midway through the third period and while he couldn't recall who it was, the West scored on its first shot on goal after the Ranger netminder moved in. The teams wound up in a 3-3 tie. The 31-year-old Sudbury, Ont., goalie was surprised by Maki's shot from near tlie East's blue line, as the Chicago Black Hawk winger used Ranger defence-man Brad Park for a screen. Maki played irregularly after scoring, favoring a recurring groin injury. But his score served to inspire the West and team-mate Bobby Hull con- Right knee in cast t Ingarfield back on shelf You can be sure that if Lethbridge's Earl Ingarfield could start the 1970-71 National Hockey League over again he would jump at the chance. The 1970-71 hockey season has been anything but good1 for Ingarfield, a centre iceman with the California Golden Seals. Last year the former Native Son spent a good portion of the season on the injured list. However, his year wasn't a total loss thanks to a strong finish. This time around he may not gel a chance to even finish the season in uniform. In 1969-70 Ingarfield fell victim to a freak pre-season accident which severed tendons in his wrist. It was well into the season before he saw his first action. He was just getting, back into the groove when hi broke his thumb. A check with the record book shows he still scored 21 goals, the standard sought by most NHL players, and picked up 24 assists to finish as the club's second leading scorer. Only Carol Vadnais had more. Ingarfield returned to Oakland for this year confident of a good season. He was optimistic after his strong showing in the late stages of the previous year. The first time he came in contact with the old New York Ranger and Pittsburgh Penguin teammate Andy Bathgate, he was badly cut in the mouth by Bathgate's stick. The injury was not' intentional but it was serious. It took 21 si itches to close the gash and left Ingarfield on the sidelines, He barely had the stitches out when he was cut for six more in the region of the mouth, The topper, however, came Dec. 30 in a game against Toronto Made Leafs in Maple Leaf Gardens. Paul Henderson of the Leafs and Ingarfield had a collision, It was this collision that has put Ingarfield on the shelf. Ingarfield is hopeful of play- ing possibly the last two weeks of the year and the playoffs if the Seals make it. Things don't look too promising for either to happen. The Seals are currentlv in hist place in the Western Divi- mm sion and the playoffs are a long way off. In Ingarfield's case, his right knee cap, according to reports, is cracked in four places. It is currently in a cast and he is undergoing therapy daily. ON SIDELINES-A knee injury has put Earl Ingarfield on the sidelines and the Lethbridge product may miss the rest of the National Hockey League season- Minor hockey roundup In Pee Wee action the Sabres rapped in two first period goals and went on to pick up a 3-1 victory over the Bears last night. Craig Robinson, Brent Mon-teith and Phil Pro all tallied once for the Sabres while & Michie managed the only marker for the Bears. Brian Anderson banged in two goals as he paced the Maroons to a 4-2 win over the Black Hawks in a Bantam A contest. Conrad Suyker and Bill Zar-ooben rounded out the Maroons scoring both notching third period goals. Bill Hensel slapped In the two Hawk's markers but it wasn't enough as the Maroons picked up their first victory of the season. In midget action two third period goals gave the A.C.T. a narrow 4-3 win over the Stam-peders. Brad Cox, Darrell Osmond, Pierre Lavarato and Reg Osmond scored for the winners. Don Henderson, with two, and Jim Orich shared in the scoring for the Stampeders. verted a rebound shot by Bill FleU. of Los Angeles Kings into a 2-0 lead before the game was five minutes old. After Yvan Cournoyer, Montreal Canadiens, narrowed the gap in the sixth minute of play by rapping Boston defenceman Dallas Smith's blue-line shot beneath Hawks' goalie Tony Es-posito, the Westerners played a close-checking game that upset the East's power. The effects of the defensive cover were never more in evidence than during the last period. While enjoying a man advantage twice through minor penalties to the West, East players managed only two shots' on the opposition goal in that 20-minute session. Blues' Ernie Wakely handled only five shots after replacing Esposito midway in the game. Coach Harry Sinden even threw a full Boston contingent in to the East attack in an effort to salvage at tie, but to no avail. DIDN'T TELL The line up comprised of Phil Esposito, runaway leader in NHL scoring, Ken Hodge and Johnny Bucyk and defencemen Bobby Orr and Smith were confused by hard-pressing West forwards and the solid work of the defensive core anchored by Chicago's Keith Magnuson and Ted Harris of Minnesota North Stars. "We played together," said Esposito after the game, "but tonight we were like strangers." Sinden, however, who now is a business executive in Rochester, N.Y., was quick to credit the West with a well-deserved victory. "They played well enough to win, we didn't," said Sinden, who steered the Bruins to their first Stanley Cup championship in nearly three decades before resigning last May. "It's that simple." The tempo of the light-hitting game was set early when referee Bill Friday tagged Harris with a tripping penalty for what appeared to be a solid hip-check that sent Orr, the 22-year-old superstar and darling of Boston Garden fans, sprawling. HULL SCORES WINNER The East's Frank Mahovlich of Montreal took a minor penalty shortly after and it was while he was still sitting out his infraction that Hull notched the winner, drilling a 35-footer past Giacomin. West coach Scotty Bowman and Hull had both forecast a West victory. Bowman told reporters in a pre-game interview that with the Hulls, Bobby and brother Dennis, and seven other Chicago players' in the West lineup for the first time, an upswing in the division's all-star fortunes would be felt immediately. Hull told more than 1,000 persons gathered at the NHL's annual dinner Monday night the West would win, illustrating his point with an empty watch box that would "be filled with $500 tomorrow night." west 1 east 1 First Period - 1.

Penguins stay in Pittsburgh BOSTON (CP) - Pititsburgh Penguins franchise in the National Hockey League will remain in that city, the league's board of governors said Tuesday. The board said in a statement the NHL, which assumed operational functions of the financially-plagued club last Dec. 1, will continue to administer its obligations throughout the 1970-71 season, with the hope of finding a new owner before next June's league player drafts. The statement said four applicants for the franchise are being considered, but one of the stipulations of the sale will be that the team remain in Pittsburgh. NHL president Clarence Campbell referred to the upswing in Pittsburgh's fortunes this season as "remarkable." He said attendance is up nearly 58 per cent over a similar period last season. The Penguins, who had been remarkably devoid of fan support throughout most of their previous three years of operations, entered the current cam paign with an operating deficit of more than $5.6 million. GUIDELINES SET In assessing the four offers, all from individuals or groups in the Pittsburgh area, Campbell said the league had established a number of guidelines for evaluating the applications. ExportA" REGULAR and KINGS These include: 1. The franchise continue to be operated in Pittsburgh; 2. The league will exert lis best efforts to sell the franchise and club to the best advantage, including the payment of the club's liabilities; 3. The purchaser will provide satisfactory evidence of its ability to provide adequate working capital to ensure the continued promotion and operation of the club. The other 13 clubs in the league are sharing equally in the cost of operating the Pittsburgh franchise, Campbell said.
