The Scouts and Capitals will be stocked today with two goalkeepers and 22 players from the existing NHL clubs in the third expansion draft in seven years. Following the expansion proceedings, the Capitals and Scouts will draw from NHL-affiliated minor-league clubs in the inter-league draft. But once the Scouts get their players, the biggest question facing the club is where in Kansas City they are going to perform. Owners of the Scouts submitted a progress report to the league governors showing their building is more than half complete. Construction of the new arena has been plagued by a series of labor difficulties. "It is the subject of one current strike and picketing that bars members of other construction unions from entry." NHL president Clarence Campbell said.- "Kansas City has requested that their home scheduling be done on the basis of a Nov. 1 start." Campbell added, explaining the Scouts will play their first seven to nine games during a three-week road trip. There still is no guarantee the Scouts' 16.000-seat rink will be ready by Nov. 1 and negotiations are under way with municipal authorities in Kansas City to rent the 9.000-seat Municipal Auditorium. Campbell said the standby facility is fully operational but without ice facilities. He said ample time exists to install ice- making machinery before the season starts. LITTLE AVAILABLE No doubt the early road trip is going to hurt the Scouts, who are going to need all the help they can get to be relatively competitive in their initial season. The existing 16 NHL clubs have made extremely little available for today's expansion draft, although Bill Torrey. general manager of New York Islanders, thinks the Scouts and Capitals are better off than the Islanders and Atlanta Flames were two years ago. The existing clubs had to declare which players they had under contract, something that was not done two years ago. The Islanders and Flames both drafted players who jumped to the rival World Hockey Association. The Islanders, for instance, drafted defenceman Bart Crashley from Montreal Canadiens and he signed shortly after with Los Angeles Sharks of the "WHA. The Flames' first pick two years ago was Kerry Ketter, another Montreal reject. Ketter is also available for this year's expansion draft, as are several other career minor leaguers and NHL players in the twilight of their careers. Last season Ketter was with Dallas Black Hawks of the Central Hockey League after playing 41 games and getting two assists for the Flames in 1972-73. HAVE FIRST CHOICE The Scouts have first pick in the goalkeeper draft and are expected to pick Michel Plasse, third-string netminder with the Canadiens last season. The Canadiens. Boston Bruins. Chicago Black Hawks and Los Angeles Kings have the option of being exempt from the goaltender draft. All teams were permitted to protect two goalkeepers and may not lose more than one in the proceedings. If the Scouts select Plasse. it would permit Montreal to fill with one of the players left off their 15-man protected list most likely defenceman John Van Boxmeer. Each club can add a player to its protected list after a claim has been made against it. No club can lose more than three players, including goalies.

"Then someone else pointed out that of the last seven major tournaments in which I've played. I've won only one. He overlooked that I have won three of the last nine." During a practice round over the Winged Foot Club Nicklaus was asked if he was beginning to feel the pressure of age as in the case of Arnold Palmer whose last major title was the 1964 Masters when he was 34 years old. "Really- I've missed only one major championship since I won my last one." Jack said prior to taking the course.

Peter Lewko of Lethbridge. announced Tuesday that the annual event will be staged at the Holiday Inn on the weekend of June 21- 22. The two day meeting usually takes place in the fall, but the AAHA has decided a June session would be more advantagous. in that, all new changes brought about at the meeting could be implemented prior to the coming season.

Delegates to the two day affair can register on the morning of June 21 between the hour of seven o'clock to eight and again June 22 from 8 a.m. to a.m. All meetings have also been scheduled so delegates may attend the meeting of their concern whether it be for minor hockev. intermediate hockey, junior hockey, coaches or referees. Meanwhile Lewko urges all hockey groups in Southern Alberta to have as many representatives as possible to the annual event.
