Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 8, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID Thursday, June 8, 1972 Lead narrowed to one point over Shamrocks Second period tough en Sons By LLOYD YAMAGISIII 'Herald Sports Writer One provides a lit- tle luck, but for a handful of shamrocks, Hie sky is the lim- it. A handful Calgary Sham- rocks proved it Wednesday night as they outlasted the Lethbridge Native Sons 14-11 in Southern Alberta Major La crosse League action at the Henderson Lake Ico Centre. The loss left the frustrated Native Sons holding a slim one point edge over the Shamrocks in the league standings. NATIVE SON SAVE Lonnie Howg comes up big for the Lelhbridge Native Sons Wednesday as he stops a point-blank shot in third period adion. Sons dropped a 14-11 verdict to Calgary Shamrocks as the visitors fired home nine goals in the second period and held on to win. Coach will choose all the players Sinden will direct Canada MONTREAL (CP) Harry Sinden never played a game in the National Hockey League but the native of Collins Bay, Ont., has been entrusted with one of tha most coveted coaching jobs ever offered in hockey. Sinden, 33, was named Wednesday night as coach and general manager of the Cana- dian team that will meet Russia in an exhibition hockey series this fall. "As soon as the word was an- -nounced that the series of games was going to be played, I was interested in Sinden said in an interview. "Last Friday T indicated that if the steering committee was in- terested in me, I was interested. "I think we have the best hockey players in the world. 1 have the opportunity to mould them into a team. I don't think we will come out on the shorl end in tills series." Sinden will choose all the play- ers on the team. In an interview last month, Sinden said there was no use Canada saying it has the best hockey players all of the time and not proving it. "Russia has won the worlt title eight or nine times and cer- tainly deserves a chance to play our best." Sinden's credentials for coaching the team are impres sive. He led Boston Bruins ti their first Stanley Cup in May 1970, and two days later igned lo go into private busl- ess. He had served Boston as oach since the 1966-67 season and in 1967-68 he guided the Bruins to their first playoff ap- pearance In nine years. The was a player-coach with Whitby Dunlops when they won a world Bruins have not been out of the playoffs since. Siuden has had experience in international hockey before. He Only two cities will be chosen MONTREAL (CP) A deti-1 After that draft Is completed, sion will be announced today on which two teams will become part of the National Hockey League in the 1974-75 season, when the league expands to 18 [earns. NHL president Clarence Campbell said Wednesday the cities and the franchise holders will botil be announced. There are 10 groups bidding for the two spots, including three sepa- rate groups from Kansas City. The NHL will also hold its draft of amateur players with New York Islanders and Atlanta Flames holding first and second picks respectively. New York has said it will pick Bill Harris, a forward with To- ronto Marlboros of the Ontario Hockey Association Junior A se- ries last season as the No. 1 selection in the proceedings. At- lanta has indicated it will choose Jacques Richard ol Quebec Reunparts of the Quebec Junior Hockey League. jtle in the late 1950s. He also :layed with the Kitchener-Wa- ierloo team which finished sec- ond to the United States in the 1960 Winter Olympics at Squaw Valley in 1960. "I've never played in Rus- Ihe American and Western Hockey League teams will par- ticipate in the reverse draft. The AHL and WHL teams are permitted to claim NHL-owned players regardless of the re- serve list on which the names are listed. Ttie claiming price is in U.S. funds and no NHL team can lose more than two players. However, a claim against an NHL club by an AHL or WHL affiliate will not consti- tute a loss. VETERANS UNPROTECTED The NEIL teams were permit- ted to protect 37 players and some prominent names were missing from some list. Reggie Fleming was left unprotected by Buffalo Sabres, Eric Nesterenko was left off the Chicago Black hawks' list, Brian Conacher was missing from Detroit's and Carl Brewer was made avail- able by St. Louis Blues. In another development Wednesday, Bobby Clarke of Philadelphia Flyers was named winner of the Masterton Trophy, awarded annually to the NHL player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey. Campbell said the NHL Play- ers Association and owners met, but no announcement was made on the progress of their talks. The league president said agreement on a "total package" must be reached and nothing will be announced piecemeal. He added it was unlikely full agreement would be reached during the current session. said Sinden. "I understand they have bigger ice surfaces there than here. I'd like to see Yvan Cournoyer on a bigger ice surface." "If the schedule remains as is, we win probably start train- ing camp Aug. 14. "We will probably invite 35 players to camp. I hope we can name those 35 by next Wednes- day." WANTS DATES CHANGED The Canadians are scheduled o meet the Russians in Canada the first week of September, but he NHL, through Hockey Can- ada, has asked that the Cana- dian part of the series be put oft until November. The Russians will play host to Canada during the last week of September and Clarence Camp- bell, NHL president, said Tues- day there is no question of changing those dales. Lou Lefaive, director of the fitness and amateur sports and a member of Hockey Canada, the body which arranged the se- ries, said he doubts the Rus- sians will agree to the change in dates. Amateur draft all set MONTREAL (CP) Some- time today, Jacques Richari will become a member of At lanta Flames. That is unless the Flames arid New York Islanders make a last-minute change of plans. Bill Torrey, general manager of the Islanders and Cliff Fletcher, his counterpart with the Flames, announced last week they had reached an agreement on amateur draft choices. Thus Richard, a 71-goal scorer last season in the Quebec Junior A Hockey League, will go to the Blames and Bill Har- ris, a strapping right winger from Toronto Marlboros of the Ontario Hockey Association Junior A series, will go to the Islanders who have first choice in the proceedings. Richard succeeded Guy Laf- leur as the junior hockey hero in Quebec City last season and Fletcher feels Richard will bo the "best centre on my club." The local club sport 11 points i vhile the Shamrocks follow closely in second with 10. Taber Ebony Hawks and Cal- ;ary Prenu'ers are in third and 'ourth spots respectively. In last night's encounter, a small crowd watched the short- landed Shamrocks tally nine second period goals to defeat Lheir hosts. Trailing 3-1 after the first 20 minutes of play, the Shamrocks came out like gang-busters in the second period and notched a marker during the opening minutes. The Sons came back shortly after with tvyo quick goals and rriaint a i u e d what was thought as an insurmountable lead. Everyone thought that, except the Shamrocks, as they struck back like lightning and racket up seven consecutive goals within seven minutes of play The Sons managed to score one more before the p e r i o c ended, but the Shamrocks want ed the last say and rammed in their ninth second p e r i o marker. In the final period, the Sons battled back to get within twi goals of the Shamrocks, but thi visiting squad was not to be headed again and kep in pace. Valas Zajancauskas, wh played his poorest game In the Sons' net this season, just couldn't find his timing and was the victim of 10 Shamrock Says: "Golfer of the Year" THE DPHILI PITCH Most greens are slanted toward the fairway, so that when you're in front, you will have an uphill pitch toward the hole. The club you choose should depend on the po- sition of the pin. Say you're 20 feet from the front edge of the green, and the pin is another 25 1972 N All. Syn. feet away. Use your pitch- ing wedge and land the ball some two or three feet onto the green. If the pin is much farther back, use a less-lofted dub a 6-iron would do and land the ball in the same place. It will run farther because of the lower tra- jectory of theshoO EH ft. "Based on discussions we've already had, I think it's going to be difficult. We have made our proposals through the usual channels but I have no idea when we will have a come- back." Sinden says he feels it is im- portant that some young players be on the Canadian team. thing that is important is that we show off some young players such as Richard Martin and Gilbert Perreault." Both were members of Buffalo Sabres last year. "The top signed amateur draft should also be Sinden said, making specie! mention of Bill Harris of To- ronto Marlboros, expected to be the No. 1 selection in today's amateur draft.

"Ha can skate, shoot, make plays, play defensively, play on the power play and kill penalties. Harris played on a line last season with Steve Shutt and Dave Gardner, son of former NHL star Cal Gardner. All three Mnemates are available in today's proceedings. Harris scored 57 goals and 72 assists, Shult had 63 goals and 49 assists and Gardner had 53 goals and 78 assists. FEW GOOD GOALIES This year's draft will be tough on NHL cluhs looking for goal- tenders. The only netminder likely to go in the first round is Michel (Bunny) Larocquc, who played v.ith Ottawa 67s of the OHA. Larocque had a goals-a gainst average of 3.40 behind a weak defence. The Western Canada Hockey League appears to have duced the best two defence prospects in Phil Russell ant Jim Watson. Russell spent 331 minutes ir the penalty box for Edmontoi Oil Kings this season and is z strong skater. Watson playei' with Calgary Centennials. Under a new agreement wit! the Canadian Amateur Hocke Association, NHL clubs will pay for each of the first 32 players picked in the draft. An additional will be paid to the junior club through the CAHA when the player signs a pro contract. The drafting clubs will pay for players drafted 33 to 64 and an additional if these players sign. All other players selected In the draft will cost to draft and another if they sign. After the eighth Shamrock marker, Zajancauskas wanted to be pulled out of the nets, but coach Dave Smith kept the young netminder between the bars. After the tenth Sharm rock goal, Zajancauskas had enough and was replaced b y Lonnie loweg, who managed to stop the high-flying Sharmocks for i little while. Chris Roa paced the Sham- 'ocks with (hree big goals Tom Benstead, Gene DeGroot and Grant Robinson added a pair each. Jerry Gillisoa, Miles Cruse, jionel Nichol, Tim Driscoll and Peter Lebourgeois chipped in with singles. Bob Monkmaa led the Sons' attack with three goals while Ken Boychuk added a brace. Jerry St. Jean, Bill Shaw, Wayne Kirchiier, Ken Hammer- stedt, Phil' Legge and Don Kitchen managed a goal apiece in a losing cause. Only 13 minor penalties were called in the cleanly played game with Lethbridge taking 10.
