Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 13, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta WodiMtcfay, 13, 1973 THf LITHMIDOE HltAlO Redmond signs for reported million dollars Will NHL part with amateurs? MONTREAL (CP) The Na- tional Hockey League's agree- ment with the Canadian Ama- teur Hockey Association was expected to come under further scrutiny today by the league's board of governors as the NHL'S 56th annual meetings concluded. Also expected during today's final session: announcements of the winner of the Bill Masterton Trophy; the nominees to the NHL Hall of Fame; the new coach of Vancouver Canucks; and the reverse draft, in which the Western and American hcckey league teams were allowed to pick players off the reserve lists of NHL teams. The NHL clubs were permitted to protect 37 players, including four goaltenders. Tuesday, the NHL held its in- tra-league draft and announced dates for the tour of two Soviet Union club teams that will visit in late November and early De- cember, all games in the U.S. Several players were signed to contracts, the most notable being Mickey Redmond, who agreed to a five-year pact with Detroit Red Wings. There were inklings that the NHL might not renew its agree- ment with the Canadian Ama- teur Hockey Association. New coach MONTREAL (CP) Bill McCreary, 38, has signed a two- year contract to coach Van- couver Canucks, Coleman Hall, vice-president and director of the National Hockey League club, announced today. The CAHA is seeking a one- year extension to the agree- ment, signed for five years in 1967 and extended another 12 months last year, which allowed the NHL to pick amateur play- ers only when they have reached or will reach their 20th birthday in the same year as the draft. The NHL board was locked in discussions of what policy to adopt toward the renewal in light of the recent signings of Mark and Marty Howe by Hous- ton Aeros of the World Hockey Association. There also were reports that Dennis Sobchuk of Regina Pats, who still has a year of junior eligibility, had signed with the WHA's Los Angeles Sharks. NHL president Clarence Campbell said the policy adopted by the WHA set a dis- tressing pattern for hockey and the NHL is in no position to do anything about it unless "we fold our agreement with the CAHA and go on a dog-eat-dog basis." The league governors dis- cussed possible realignment of the league for the 1974r75 season when Kansas City Scouts and Washington join the other 16 clubs. The Masterton trophy is awarded annually to the player whc has shown the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey. The Vancouver coaching post has been vacant sinca the firing of Vic Stasiuk following the Co- nucks' seventh-place finish this past season. Bill McCreary, who once coached St. Louis Blues, and Phil Maloney, a suc- cessful minor league coach and player, are mentioned as prime candidates for the job. The intra-league draft lasted 30 minutes and of the six play- ers picked, five were defen cemen. Lou Angotti, a centre, was grabbed by St. Louis Blues from Chicago Black Hawks while Atlanta Flames took Doug Mohns from Minnesota North Stars. The North Stars plucked Bill Plager from the Flamss, when he was dropped from their protected list to make room for Mohns. New York Islanders took Bert Marshall from New York Rangers, Pittsburgh Penguins grabbed Ron Jones from Boston Bruins, Buffalo Sabres selected Joe Noris from St. Louis" and California Gold'ai Seals chose Ray McKay of the Sabres. Redmond's signing was one of many announced Tuesday but he denied bis deal was worth f 1 million. 'I don't biow where that million figure came Redmond said. "That was a fig- ure that came out in the pa- pers, but we never asked for that amount." Montreal Canadiens an- nounced the signings of Jim Ca- noon, Ron Andruff, Michel Be- lisle, Richard Latulippe and Henry Lehoven. Boston Bruins the signing of goalie Jim Pette; and Buffalo signed three former Quebec Lan- dry, Yvon Dupuis and Andre Deschamps; and Orest Kind- rachuk, who played with mond Robins of the American Hockey League last year, was signed to a multi-year deal by Philadelphia Flyers. The Russian A team, when it comes to North America, will open in New York against the Hangers Nov. 27, go to Boston to play the Bruins Dec. 1, move to Buffalo for a game against the Sabres Dec. 4 before com- pleting the schedule in Phila- delphia Dec. 6 against the Fly- ers. Team B will play in Detroit against the Red Wings Nov. 27, hv Chicago two nights later against the Black Hawks, in Minnesota against North Stars Dec. 4 and close out {heir tour four days later against the Blues in St Louis. Rough greeting for Wolstoncroft Brawl highlights Giants' win CALGARY (CP) Calgary Giants overcame a three-run deficit with two-run surges in the fifth and sixth innings Tu- esday to defeat Calgary Jim- mies 4-3 in an Alberta Major Baseball League game. The game was marred by a brawl at the end of the sixth inning which precipitated the clearing of both benches. Jim- mies' playing-manager John Elick decked Giants' base coach Gord Vejprava with one punch and sparked the melee which resulted in Elick and in- fielder Dave Edson of Giants being ejected from the game. The incident apparently start- ed because of some remarks exchanged between the teams. Jimmies scored twice in the first against winner Dave Day on a two-run double by Steve Minor ball roundup Greg Kveder's third inning home run proved to be tpp much for the Expos as the Pi- rates waltzed to a 10-6 victory in Norcrest Senior Little League action Tuesday night.

Guy McNab managed a solo home run in a losing cause. In a Little League match, Minor hockey over-organized PICTON, Ont. (CP) Minor hockey, like all minor sport, is over-organized, says the newly elected president of the Cana- dian Amateur Hockey Associ- ation. Jack Devine of Belleville told a service club meeting Tuesday in this community 15 miles southeast of Belleville that chil- dren are pushed by their par- ents, who place too much em- phasis on the number of goals or runs scored by their children and too little on the child's en- joyment of the game. "Minor hockey associations really don't want to organize hockey down to too young an age, but if they don't parents he said. the Royal's edged the Canucks 6-4. At Norcrest, Dave Field fired a four-hitter and paced the Cardinals to a slim 16-14 win over the Expos. Clark Bosch was tagged with the loss.

Gordon Tait blasted a grand- slam home run in the second inning and propelled the Angels to a 6-1 verdict over the Twins. Allan Gepneris supplied the pitching power by hurling a one-hitter while Tim Hisaoka was nailed with the loss. Ken Byam managed the only hit off Gepneris, a double. Santoni paces Miners to win Lethbridge Miners regis- tered their eighth consecutive Southern Alberta Major Men's Fastball League victory by downing the Lethbridge Hotel North Stars 5-1 at the Dave Elton Park Tuesday night.

In a copyrighted story by sports editor John Steadman, the News American quoted Unitas, as saying the suit would be filed within a week in fed- eral court here. The paper said the action would involve a contract Unitas signed three years ago with the Colts calling for annual salary terms of plus a year for 10 years after his play- ing days were over. The agreement, publicized previously, had been signed with Carroll Rosenbloom. Rose- nbloom traded the Colts' fran- chise to Robert Irsay, an Il- linois businessman, last sum- mer in exchange for Los Ange- les Rams. NOT ENOUGH According to the News Ameri- can, John Icardi said NFL com- missioner Pete Rozelle had told him that Irsay would pay Unitas an amount the lawyer termed "not an equi- table settlement." "The suit will be based on a breach of contract, even a con- spiracy that started with the benching of John by the general manager, Joe Thomas, after five games of the season when he was having a good Icardi, who works out of Or- glando, Fla., said. Unitas, the Colts starting quarterback for 16 years, was benched after the fifth game of the 1972 season as Thomas be- gan shuffling players in efforts to snap the club out of a slump. Shortly after the season ended, the Colts traded Unitas to San Diego Chargers for un- disclosed "future considera- tins." Unitas signed a two-year contract with the Chargers last week.

(AP) Ar- nold Palmer answered the ques- tions with the unf ailing patience and courtesy that have made him a favorite of the world's golfing millions for almost two decades. It was low key. He's now 43, winner of only one tournament in the last two years, subject to prolonged slumps, often tagged with the condescending label "sentimen- tal favorite." He's becoming more and Eiore an elder statesman of the game, and his responses were in keeping with that role. There was no brash enthusiasm, no over-riding optimism, no bring- on-those tigers bravura. His replies were scattered with phrases such as "at this age or "it's difficult to say He was asked if a victory in the United States Opsn would have a special meaning for him. "That would really be some- he said as a wide grin flashed across one of the most- photographed faces in the world. "Oh, yes, definitely. That would really be it." His enthusiasm is easily un- derstood. In the U.S. Open at OEkmont in 1962, Palmer was the unchallenged king of the game, at the peak of his powers and popularity. And Jack Nicklaus beat him in a playoff. It was the begin- ning of the Nicklaus era and the beginning of the end of Palmer's reign. Now, with the Open returning to Oakmont 11 years later, Nicklaus is The Man, the domi- nant figure in the game, the fa- Fomrades named MVP at tourney Gus Fomradas of Lethbridge Welterlich learned Monday he has been selected as the most valuable player in the 1973 Western Canada broomb all championship tournament. The western Canada broom- ball finals were staged from May 31 to June 4 in Moose Jaw, Sask. and featured the top 16 teams in the west. Fomradas was superb in the six-day event as he tallied no less than seven of the eight goals scored by the local club, club. John Vaselenak was the only other player to hit the score- sheet in their short bid for the title. This is an added honor bestow- ed on Fomradas since most players don't get recognized for their efforts when their team fails to reach the semi-finals or finals. Welterlich were ousted early in the tourney sporting a 5-2 record in the double-knockout series. vorite every time he world's premier player. Asked to assess Jack's chances in the Open that starts Thursday, Palmer thought a minute. "Jack? He's at the peak at his game." He paused and a strange, al- most wistful look flitted across his face. "He's 33. When I was I won the Masters and the British Open. I lost the U.S. Open in a playoff and lost the PGA by one stroke. That's pretty close to the never-accomplished Grand Slam, a one year sweep of all the major championships. I won eight tournaments that That's not bad." A victory over Nicklaus at Oakmont could be the sweetest of all bis more than 70 world triumphs. To accomplish that long shot ambition, Palmer has restructured his game. He has taken one of his longest breaks ever from competition, playing only once in the last a-half. "I'd gotten Into some bad he said. "It started! maybe two years ago. "I was playing with my dad one day and he saw something in the swing and said: 'You didn't used to do that." "I was getting out of position. "It's something you can't sea yourself. You don't know it's happening. And it takes time to get strengthened out. That'g oof reason I took the break.
