Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 27, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta TM LITHBKIDGE HIRALD Thursday, January 17, 1971 Wakely sharp for St. Louis Blues Maple Leafs stay locked in tailspin By THE CANADIAN PRESS Getting a second chance has been the Blory of Ernie Ty's hockey career since he left (he junior Winnipeg Braves in 1960. He has criss-crossed Ihc North American continent in the intervening period so many times his itinerary reads like a travelogue. Permanent layovers were few and far between. But Scotty Bowman rescued him from the airlines in 1969, installed him in the first suc- cessful three-goalie system in the National Hockey League with St. Louis Blues, and has been more or less a regular less. He earned major-league cre- dentials his first two seas but remained the other goalie behind veterans Jacques Plante and Glenn Hall. This year, with both Plante and Hall gone, the No. 1 spot was Blues got off to a slow start. Wakely started riding the bench behind a succession of goalies buckng for his job, then finally got his second chance when Al Arbour returned as St. Louis coach. Arbour started using the 31- year-old Flin Flon, Man., na- tive, and both Wakely and the Blues have been responsive while restabhshing themselves as West Division playoff con- tenders, the latest effort a 2-1 cliffliangcr over Pittsburgh Pen- guins Wednesday night.

They're i 3 swell bunch of guys on UK squad and I hope I can help them to do well." Howe is the youngest playei ever to line up on the U.S. tional team. That's something his famous father never achieved. Gordie was 18 when he signed as a pro and started his fantastic 25 year career with the Red Wings. PICKED ON MERIT Team manager Hal TTumble said young Howe won his place in the squad on merit. "I know some people wil think he was chosen because he's Gordie Howe's Trum-ble said. "Don't believe it. We needed a left wing, and he was the best available. "It would be bad policy to select any player because of his name, anyway. If the other players had thought that, they would have resenttd it and the morale of the whole team would have suffered. "But they know it isn't true. The whole squad has tremendous respect for Mark." Howe has played three games for the National team. "I've seen his confidence grow with each Dad hi By GEOFFREY MILLER SAPPORO, Japan (AP) -Mark Howe, 16-year-old son o former Detroit Red Wings' star Gordie Howe, pondered over a piece of advice from dad today as he tuned up for the some i with the U.S. National hocke team. "Before I left for Japan, da told me to listen to everythin the coach said and to enjoy my Mark said. "I'm trying to do both Louis into third place in tb West race. BLUES COME ON The close-checking scoreles affair broke off in the last pe riod when the Blues surged inti a 2-0 lead on goals by Gary Sa bouriir and Garry Unger befon Bryan Hextall's screen sho spoiled Wakely's shutout a Wakely, who had blanked the Penguins 1-0 Saturday night survived four Pittsburgh power plays while his mates wen being foiled at the other end primarily by the defensive play of veteran Tim Horton. Jean Ratelle, with goals No 29 and 30, lifted his season's point total to 81 and a tie for the NHL scoring lead with Boston's Phil Esposito, as the Rangers moved within one point of Bos ton's East Division top spot. Linemates Rod Gilbert and Vic Hadfield also got into the act, Gilbert scoring once aneam, hold on for a moment and let big ambition is to be a pro hockey star like dad. But under present National Hockey League rules he cannot become a pro until he's 20. "So I plan to spend two years at he said. "After that, I hope to be a hockey pro. But I'm keeping an open mind about it. "Dad has interests in cattle, insurance and real estate, and if I find I don't like the life of a hockey pro, I'll have opportunities iin business." Back home in Detroit, Mark's mother is resigned to having both him and his elder brother Marty following in Gordie's footsteps. "It's when we get hurt she has Mark said. "Marty fractured his cheekbone in a Iwckey game just before Christmas, and then she got worried. "I had an operation on my right knee four months ago, but I'm fit and confident line continued its rapid pace Wednesday night with seven scoring points, for 218 in 46 games. Gilbert with 33 goals and Hadfield with 30 gives the unit 93 for the season and a shot at the record 140 set by Esposito's trio, that included Ken Hodge and Wayne Cashman, last season. Six of the Rangers, including Ratelle, Gilbert and Hadfield, spent six hours in the pre-dawn Wednesday in a plane at Minneapolis waiting for Hie frigid Minnesota weather to warm up so they could take off. The plane never did get off the ground and the players eventually had lo swap airlines to get back to New Yn-k in time for Wednesday's game. "Sure the guys were said Emile Francis, New York's general manager-coach who was also aboard the grounded plane after attending the NHL All-Star game Tuesday night.
