Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDGE June YES! we are accepting registrations for CHRISTMAS BOOKINGS TO HAWAII no depcmlt required ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL PHONE 328-3201 Pat Sullivan Sometime today Bill Burton general manager and shareholder in the Lethbridge Broncos Hockey Club, will cast the first vote a Lethbridge franchise will have had in the Canada Hockey League Burton accompanied by coach Earl Ingarfield, is in Victoria lor the annual WCHL meetings which should produce some very interesting news for Lethbridge and Southern Alberta hockey fans as well as all WCHL supporters High on the agenda one would imagine will be the welcome of the Lethbridge club to the 12-team league It is still somewhat hard to believe that we will actually be getting major junior hockev this winter I had a quick chat with Ingarfield Tuesday and he indicated that he has set the wheels in motion and is working full time with the Broncos Ingarfield and the New York Islanders parted permanent but he will still do some scouting for the National Hockey League club As he puts it he is still going to see all the teams in the WCHL first hand In a story out of Saskatoon Wednesday, Ed Chynoweth, WCHL president said that one item on the agenda of this week s meetings would be the topic of agents currently beating the bushes and signing junior players in efforts to gam more money tor the and line their own pockets Chvnoweth the first full time president of the league, makes a verv good point concerning the agents He indicates that the WCHL is not against the players hav- ing an agent to do their bargaining However, as he points out, it is time the agents paid their dues Chynoweth did not say what the price would be that the league would access the agents He did say that any money would go to the team which developed the player After all, the team virtually takes a diamond in the rough and makes a hockey plaj er out of the boy at its expense Reimbursement of some kind is definitely in order Any NHL team or World Association team now, that drafts and signs a player must pay the team from which the player comes Why shouldn't the agent be charged as well7 He is cer- tainly getting his moneys worth There is a group of Lethbridge hockey people who will not be happy with one part of the story from Saskatoon Mind you, the paragraph simply said the league was expecting a franchise bid from Thunder Bay I don t have to tell you the uproar that would take place should the WCHL expand after telling local interests expansion was out of the question However I don t think Thunder Bay will be given a franchise That would be stretching things a little too much It will be interesting to see how they realign the league to fit Lethbridge in A natural rivalry seems assured between the Broncs and Medicine Hat Tigers After all that is all the Gas City has going for it and they would like nothing better than to give our city and its club a licking or two And that I got from some devout Tiger hockey fans as if there are any other kind Now as it stands, the Broncos are actually in the Eastern Division with Regma Pats, Flm Flon Bombers, Saskatoon Blades Brandon Wheat Kings and Winnipeg Clubs One suggestion this reporter heard, but not a concrete one, was to have three divisions of four teams There would be Flm Flon Brandon, Winnipeg and Saskatoon Medicine Hat, Lethbridge, Calgary Centennials and Regina and then Edmonton would join with New Westminster Bruins Victoria Cougars and Kamloops Chiefs Or how about Edmonton going with the Saskatchewan and Manitoba teams and the rest of the Alberta franchises in a divi- sion with B C 9 We will all know just where we will be playing by Saturday The thing that counts is that we will be playing The word from the Broncos today is that Brad Cox a 17- ear-old formerh owned by the Tigers, has been obtained by the locals According to Garv Kirk, a team official the Broncos simply the placing rights to Cox should he play in the WCHL Cox plaved last vear in the Alberta Junior Hockey League with the Lethbridge Longhorns He started the year as a defenceman but was shifted to forward and made the adjustment quite well Herald Sports Big M inks contract with Toronto Toros MacGregor leaves Rangers for Oilers By THE CANADIAN PRESS Toronto Toros scheduled a news conference today but the news already is Mahovhch has signed a contract with the World Hockey Association club I signed for four years and I'm the 36-year-old former National Hockey League star said in an inter- view Wednesday Mahovhch, jumping from Montreal Canadiens, was one of two big names from the NHL to join the WHA Wednesday Bruce MacGregor, New York Rangers' leading scorer in this year's Stanley Cup playoffs, joined the WHA Ed- monton Oilers MacGregor, 33, told a news conference in Edmonton he had chosen to join the Oilers "because this is home Mahovhch's move had been expected for some time and Montreal left him unprotected in last week's expansion draft DIDN'T GET PETE The Toros apparently will not be announcing the signing of Pete Mahovhch, Frank's younger brother "I haven't talked to him for a while but it looks like he won't the Big M said of his younger brother If the Toros play next season in Maple Leaf Gardens, Mahovhch will be returning to the arena where he won NHL rookie-of-the- year honors in 1957-58 The Big M, who has a home and two travel agency offices in Toronto, spent 11 seasons with the Leafs before he was traded to Detroit Red Wings in 1968 His best goal-scoring season came in 1968-69 with the Wings when he scored 49 but his best points production was 1971-72 with Montreal when he had 43 goals and 53 assists Last season, he
