It was announced earlier in Halifax that MacNeil had accepted the job of general manager and coach of the Montreal-owned Voyageurs of the American Hockey League. The Voyageurs aire moving to Halifax on a full-time basis for the 1971-72 season and will be known as the Nova Sfcotia Voyageurs. Announcement of the switch was made by Canadiens management at a news conference during the NHL annual meetings . MacNeil, 35, 8 native of Sydney, N.S., took over the Canadiens coaching job from Claude Ruel last December and led the club to a third-place finish in the NHL East Division and the Stanley Cup. There had been widespread Beliveau hangs up his blades It was an emotional affair MONTREAL (CP) - Jean Beliveau, an 18-year veteran of National Hockey League play, announced his retirement Wednesday at an emotion-packed news conference. "It was a difficult decision to reach," Beliveau told the gathering. "Hockey has been my life since the day my father gave me a pair of skates when I was five years old "It was a hard decision because I still love the action on the ice. I had hundreds of letters urging me to stay on for one more year as a player and have been urged to do so by my team-mates. But I have to get closer to my family." Beliveau said he reached the decision to retire 10 days ago while travelling on a plane from Calgary. He said he did not want to think about retirement throughout the playoffs, but bad hoped for a smooth route to his final Stanley Cup. Beliveau, who will be 40 on Aug. 31, will assume duties as vice-president of corporate rela-tions immediately with the Montreal hockey club. Beliveau is one of four men to score 500 goals in NHL competition. He played a total of 1,215 BIG JEAN RETIRES - It was Jean Beliveau night at Jarry Park In Montreal last night after the Canadian's captain announcad his hockey retirement. He's shown here with San Francisco Giant great Willie Mays before the game with the Expos then com* pleting the evening by blanking the Giants 4-0 on a one-hit job by Steve Renko. regular-season games, scoring 507 goals and 712 assists for 1,219 prints. He appeared in 70 games last season, scoring 25 goals-including his 500th career goal-and adding 51 assists. He was instrumental in leading the Canadiens to a Stanley Cup triumph this spring over Chicago Black Hawks. It was the 10th time Beliveau was a member of a Stanley Cup winning team. Beliveau said after the Canadiens beat Chicago that there was "a 50-50 chance" he would call it quits. During this year's playoffs, the native of Trois-Rivieres, Que., fired six goals and counted 16 assists, breaking the playoff assist record of 15 set by Stan Mikita of Chicago. REGULAR ALL-STAR He has been selected to the NHL's first all-star team six times and made the second team three times. He won the Hart Trophy, as the league's most valuable player twice and won the Art Ross Trophy as league scoring champion in 1965. Beliveau was the first winner of the Conn Smythe Trophy when he was selected the most valuable player in the 1965 playoffs. He is only one of three players to hfve scored two Stanley Cup winning goals since 1927. The others are Toe Blake, his former coach and team-mate Henri Richard. He shares another mark with Richard, the distinction of being on the most Stanley Cup teams -10. HONORED BY EXPOS Later, at Jarry Park, Beliveau was honored in a pre-game ceremony by Montreal Expos of baseball's National League. His parents and family as well as some former teammates were introduced to the 20,011 fans, who gave Beliveau a two-minute standing ovation. After the game, he was presented with a gold watch by the Expos and a cheque for an undisclosed amount for the Jean Beliveau Fund set up earlier this year to aid underpriviliged children.

PHONI 327-5767 Use Hoyfs Own Convenient Budget Term or Your CHARGEX speculation for weeks that MacNeil, a former NHL de-fenceman and coach of the Voyageurs, would offer his resignation following open criticism of his coaching by veteran centre Henri Richard. Bowman, a former scout and coach of Montreal Junior Canadiens of the Ontario Hockey Association Junior A series, went to St. Louis in the 1967-68 NHL expansion season. He resigned as coach of the Blues last month because of disagreement with the team's owners. Jean Beliveau, who announced his retirement Wednesday to become vice-president of corporate developinent and spokesman for the Canadiens, confirmed that the Voyageurs had been moved to Halifax for the coming season. EXPLAIN CHANGES Sam Pollock, general manager of the Canadiens, said the importance of the Montreal farm system was a prime factor in MacNeil's move to Halifax. MacNeil served as playing coach with Houston Apollos of the Central Hockey League and then in the same capacity with the Voyageurs before coming to the Canadiens last season as assistant to Ruel. Pollock said MacNeill will be "in complete charge" of the Halifax operation. MacNeil said he is looking forward to his new position "with optimism." "I'm not so naive as to think leaving as coach of the Canadiens is not a big decision. "It was one of the most demanding positions in hockey. "When I left the NHL more than three years ago as a player Mr. Pollock got me back into hockey. It has been a hectic year-an exciting year-and I got a great deal of personal satisfaction from it." Bowman, reported to have signed a one-year contract although the terms were not announced, said his last four years in St. Louis had been "great." But he was happy to return to his native Montreal. He said he had been connected with the Montreal organization as a junior player, scout and coach since 1952 before moving to St. Louis. He lauded Ruel, now chief scout with the Canadiens, as having no peer as a selector of hockey talent and as a great help to any coach. SCOTTY BOWMAN - The new coach of the Montreal Canadiens. AL MACNEIL - A hockey job in Halifax for the coach of the Stanley Cup champions. Guy Laf leur is number one Dyck purchased by Canadiens MONTREAL (CP) - Montreal Canadiens sold two players to California Golden Seals in one of several player deals announced Wednesday. The Canadiens sent goal-tender Ray Martyniuk, their No. t pick in last year's amateur draft, and forward Mike Hynd-man to the Seals. Neither player has seen any action in the National Hockey League. Montreal also bought goalie Ed Dyck from Vancouver Canucks. In another deal, Providence Reds of the American Hockey League sold defencenaan Adam Keller to New York Rangers of the NHL. Phillips sharp in two games Eneraons came up with two more victories in Business-null's Fastball League action this week. The Motormen romped past TV-7 20-4 and outlegged Prebco 12-11. Tom Phillips was the winning pitcher in both games for Enersons. City of Lethbridge edged past Bank of Nova Sfcotia 14-12 as John Lowther bested Lynae Rosane. Wayne Gregory managed four hits for the City including a home run while Tosh Kanashiro also had a home run. Rosane came up with three hits in a losing effort. Conn Smythe upset over hockey pick TORONTO (CP) - Conn Smythe, builder of Maple Leaf Gardens and the Maple Leaf hockey club, says he may resign as chairman of the Hockey Hall of Fame governing committee because of the selection to the hall of Harvey (Busher) Jackson. Jackson, who with Joe Pri meau and Charlie Conacher formed the Leafs* famed Kid Line in the 1930s, was elected to the Hall of Fanie Wednesday. But Smythe has been against the selection of Jackson, who died in 1966, on the grounds that the player's high-living, off-ice image disqualified him as a member of the hall. When asked if he would resign as chairman, as he often claimed he would if Jackson were selected, he said: "I would think there's a pretty good chance." Jackson was regarded as one of the top left wingers in National Hockey League history. He joined the Leafs in 1930 and helped them win three league titles and the Stanley Cup in 1931-32. His election to the Hall of Fame was announced at the NHL annual meeting in Montreal. Also elected were former players Terry Sawchuk, Ralph (Cooney) Weiland and Dr. Gordon Roberts. Elected in the builder category was Arthur M. Wirtz, current chairman of Chicago Black Hawks. Collins traded to Saskatchewan MONTREAL (CP) - Charlie Collins, Montreal Alouettes linebacker, has been traded to Sas-katchewan Roughriders for Chuck Kyle, the Eastern Football Conference Alouettes said Wednesday. Collins was named to the Eastern Conference all-star team this year and Red O'Quian, Alouettes general manager, called him a "spectacular ball player." "But," he added, "Sam (head coach Sam Etcheverry) figured that Kyle was a better player on his all-round play."

Lafleur, who scored 130 goals in 62 regular season games last year, was grabbed by the Stanley Cup champion Montreal Canadiens. The Canadiens held the first-round pick of California Golden Seals because of a prior deal. Marcel Dionne, the small but high-flying centre from the Ontario Hockey Association's St. Catharines Black Hawks, was the next to go. He was drafted by Detroit Red Wings. * - * Pick Robertson In today's fifth round of the NHL amateur draft, New York Rangers selected Fraser Robertson of the Lethbridge Sugar Kings. At press time, he was the lone player drafted from the Alberta Junior Hockey League. *--* St. Louis Blues, who had Pittsburgh Penguins' first-round choice, latched onto forward Gene Carr from Flin Flon Bombers of the Western Canada Hockey League for the $3,000 NHL draft price.

Richard Martin, the left winger who set a record of 71 goals in the OHA with Montreal Canadiens last season, was the next to go.
