Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 12, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, 12, 1973 Ingarfield steps down A ho-hum session at league meeting MONTREAL (CP) The Na- tional Hockey League's 56th an- nual meetings continue today with the intra-league draft, a meeting of the board of gover- nors and other meetings of NHL-affiliated minor leagues after a rather dull day Monday. There was more news con- cerning individual clubs than the league itself Monday, al- though NHL referee-in-chief Scotty Morrison announced some rule changes for next sea- son. The league also held its inter- league Golden Seals grabbed the only player, forward Hartland Monahan from Salt Lake in the Western Hockey League. Henri Richard signed a two- year contract to play with Mon- treal Canadiens, Al Arbour agreed to a three-jear pact to coach the New York Islanders, Boston Bruins signed three amateur draft choices and Buf- falo Sabres announced Rene Robert and Rick Martin had signed lor.g-term contracts. There was talk Monday that the Golden Seals might be leav- ing Oakland, bound for In- dianapolis. REACH AGREEMENT A spokesman for Market Square Associates, which will manage the new arena in In- dianapclis, said an agreement had been reached "provided Finley (Seals' owner Charles O. Finley) decides to is allowed to Seals from Oakland." But Finley will need approval from the board of governors, and the subject of the Seals is not among the 40-odd items on today's agenda. Finley denied Monday night he bad come to Montreal to dis- cuss the shift, and NHL presi- dent Clarence Campbell said there is little chance of a trans- fer being dicsussed. Campbell said, however, he is sure Finley would be interested in divesting himself of the Seals tor the right price. The governors are expected to discuss fee possibility of fu- ture expansion, the NHL's agreement with the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association, and the tour of the Soviet Un- ion's national hockey team next winter. New York Rangers and Min- nesota North Stars came up with the biggest omissions as 16 clubs filed their protected lists for today's draft. Rangers failed to include Glen Sather and Bobby Rousseau, both veteran for- wards, while Minnesota dropped defenceman Doug Mohns and fonvards Bob Nevin and Charlie Burns. All goalkeepers are exempt from, this year's draft, as are first-year professionals and amateurs under 22 as of Dec. 31. 1973. Only one claim may be made against any club. When a claim is made for the claiming price, the AL ARBOUR Short sport GILLIAM TO MANAGE LOS ANGELES (AP) Los Angeles Dodger coach J i m Gilliam will manage the San Juan team of the Puerto Rican League during the 1973-74 win- ter baseball season, the Dod- gers said Monday. The 44-year- old veteran has been with the Dodgers for 22 seasons and has been a coach since 1965. PATEK SHELVED KANSAS CITY (AP) Kan- sas City shortstop Fred Patek was placed on the 15-day dis- abled list Monday and the club called up Royals' Academy graduate Frank White from Omaha to take his place on the roster. More sport on page 12 claiming team must drop a player from its protecting list. New York Islanders have first pick in today's proceedings. The Islanders pulled a sur- prise when they announced the hiring of Arbour, who was fired from the coaching position at St. Louis after 13 games. He replaces Earl Ingarfield of Lethbridge, who stepped down to become director of player per- sonnel. "This is the biggest challenge fof my Arbour said. "We have youngsters coming up that will surprise a lot of people." Richard's two-year pact with Montreal calls for a reported a year. The Montreal captain, who has played on a record 11 Stan- ley Cup-winning teams, had been wooed by Houston Aeros of the World Hockey Associ- ation but decided to return to Montreal after meeting with Ca- nadiens' general manager Sam Pollock. The Bruins announced the signing of defenceman Al Sims, right winger Steve Langdon and goalie Peter Crosbie. Sims played with Cornwall Royals of the Quebec Major Junior A Hockey League, Crosbie and Langdon with London Knights of the Ontario Hockey Asso- ciation Junior A series. The signing of Robert and Martin assures the Sabres of keeping their famous French Connection line intact. The other member of the trio- centre Gilbert al- ready bound by a long-term deal. NHL centres will have to get used to a change in the faceoff circles next fall. The eight-foot margin be- tween lines that separate oppo- nents has been reduced to sis feet. Morrison said the reduced six-foot distance between the "T" lines marked on the ice will allow all players a fair op- portunity to face off correctly. The joint rules committee also added a rule which calls for a minor penalty plus a 10- minute misconduct to be im- posed on any player who re- fuses to surrender his stick for measurement by the referee. Some players last season broke their sticks or threw them into the bench to prevent a measurement by officials. Morrison said such players now also could be fined penalty for use of an illegal presumption that the evasion was an act of guilt. Unique in sport Karen Beaird, the Junior Queen pitches blindfolded Monday evening for a packed house at Dave Elton Park. Miss Beaird led the way for the Junior Queen and her Maids as they met the Southern Belles, arv all-star team from the women's fastball league, in an exhibition fastball game, Ths Queen and her Maids are a four-player team.

TORONTO (CP) Vsevolod Bobrov, coach of the Russian hockey team, says last year's Canada-Russia series made clear to Canadian fans the beauty of the game "is the demonstration of skill, and not that of fights."

Currently living in Medi- cine Hat, Kelly WES born and raised in Regina, living most of his life blocks Irom the centre of football mad- ness called Taylor Field, t'ne home cf the Saskatchewan Roughricers. During his high school years at Re'jna Scoit Collegiate Kelly was a player. He be- came close to fho football scene, professionally, as waier boy and assistant trainer for the Roughies. He continued his association with football in Canada by cover- ing Saskatchewan Barnes for United Press International for five seasons. He also wrote for the Leader Post, but not in sports capacity. Kelly, while still favoring the hay-shakers from Saskat- chewan, will attend all Cal- gary Stampeder home games as well as keeping a close eye on the Edmonton Eskimos. Because of the exploits of high school football in Leth- bridge and surrounding dis- tricts there is a great deal of terest in the CFL. Kelly, to say the least, is very enthusiastic about Cana- dian football, believing it to be an excitinf spectacle of very high quality. Watch fnr C-raham Kelly weekly on these sports pages. his comments after watching the Stanley Cup final series be- tween Montreal Canadiens anc Chicago Black Hawks. "The encounters by the mar- vellous masters of the hockey stick presented a fascinating he wrote, "And here is what is so interesting: There were no fights, no wild out- bursts for which professional hockey was so famous." Bobrov says he was told that the Canadian professionals went through a process of "rebirth" and the Canada-Russia series left an indelible impression on the Canadian fan. He said he also noticed a change in tactics by Montreal. HAVE COPIED SYSTEM Before the now historic series, "the puck was thrown quickly to the zone of attack and pressure was exerted from there on, but now the procedure of combination play is pre- ferred, just as in cur game." The Russian coach said that when he went to congratulate Scotty Bowman on the Cana- diens win he was shown the club's training room. "Bowman underlined that he placed the room right next to the dressing room as he wants, according to our methods, to devote more time to physical development of his players. "The only difference is that our exercises are being carried out by the group method and in .he Montreal case by whoever feels like it." Bobrov said he talked to Harry Sinden, coach of Team Canada, and John Ferguson, Sinden's assistant, about the last September's games. WOUIQN'T WANT SERIES He said he expressed his dis- pleasure about the extreme roughness and unsportsmanlike behavior of the Canadians and told Sinden and Ferguson he would be "most reluctant" to meet Team Canada again "on this basis." "They agreed with us and ex- pressed the hope that friendly matches should take place with- out the unnecessary extreme agitation Bobrov said he also saw the Memorial Cup final games and said the juniors "are real mas- ters of the game of hockey.' "It is interesting that in the Toronto team that became the victors (Toronto there are playing the sons of such great professionals as Gor- die Howe. Bobrov wrote he didn't think Canada would ever send an amateur team to the world championships. One of the reasons was that the NHL (which Bobrov called the Canadia n-American League) and the World Hockey Association (which he called the World Professional League) 'sucks" all the best 20-year- olds from amateur hockey. "Those who remain after the cleansing have no chance to claim the world's crown."
