Is a walking computer. He churns out facts and fig- ures with such regularity that It is enough to make even a computers brain swim. Most of the statistics are for public consumption. But one of t hem known as the plus-minus rating system is considered by the NHL as confidential, in other words only for the eyes of coaches and players. New York Post got into a hassle with the NHL's infor- mation bureau in Montreal over the ratings ami said the league refused lo furnish thorn to The they appeared in prinl elsewhere. Apparently, a hockey writer for a New Jersey newspaper obtained from Ihe league the plus-and-minus ratings o! New York Rangers and pub- lished them. The Post said coach Emil Francis ot the Rangers lodged a protest rath (he NHL. Francis regards the ratings as confidential. He fears that if they are made public, they could be misinterpreted by hockey writers and fans, sub- ject players with minus rat- ings to unjustified criticism, rind aid the opposition. Under Ihe rating system, each player on the ice re- ceives a plus when his team, scores and a minus when he is on the ice for rival goals. Power-play and shorthanded goals are excluded. Dennis Ball, director of the Rangers' farm system, said: "Newspaper guys aren't sup- posed to have plusscs and minuses they arc con- Ikleatial." There are two statistics the NHL puts out which do justice to Billy Harris, the hard- working right winger of New York Islanders who hasn't missed a game this season. Harris was the No. 1 selec- tion in the amateur draft last year, and he has lived up to his potential despite playing for the Jowly Islanders. Biljy is the second leading scorer among first-year pros in (he NHL befiind Bill Bar- ber of Philadelpiiia Flyers. "Some golf" tliis fall at 15-25 club "Some golf" Mill be available late Lhis fall at the 15-25 club in northeast Lethbridge, Reg Turner, organizer of the proj- ect, said Monday. The course will be fully operational in the summer of 1974. Fifty thousand dollars worth of work and materials have al- ready gono into the club, he said. Another is needed now to complete the watering system for nine holes. Tiic club v.ill be between the ages of 15 and 25, Mr. Turner said, with the mem- bers electing their own board and making their cwn rules. He expects a membership ot upwards of 300. The club is needed, he said, to relieve the other city clubs of the pressure of junior members, which they cannot handle, and lo train young goiters for Inter mem- bership in the senior clula. Harris scored his 20th goal Feb. 28, when he deflected Ed Westfall's shot past Chicago goalie Tony Esposito. He is the first Islander to have scored at least one point against the other 15 clubs in the league. Harris, 21, shines in two NHL goals and points and the player efficiency rating. Seventeen ot Harris' goals are rated by the NHL as "im- portant" for an average of 35 per cent. His record of imporlanl goals is far superior to other rookies. Figures as of Marcl 1 showed Barber with G3.6 cent of his 23 goals rated im portant. Steve Vickers of thi Hangers had a 52.1-pcr-ccn rating on 23 goals and Greg Sheppard of Boston Bruin scored D0.5 'per cent on "K goals. The player efficiency ralinj is designed lo show the inch vidual's performance com pared with that of lu's (cam over-all showing.
