Sandy Saddler was also named. (AP Wiraphoto) Having best season ever Trembia) full of finesse By AL MCNEIL Canndinn Press.Staff Writer J. C. Tremblay knows only one way to play fi- nesse. And for most of his 11 Na- tional Hockey League seasons with Montreal Canadiens, the 33-y e a r -o 1 d defence man has proved that it works. When it hasn't critical fans In the Montreal Forum have let him know about a tor- rent of boos. But J. C. himself harbors few Illusions about the style of play. Never a hitting detenceman, ho relies heavily on his stick and skates and has become a mas- ter of filching the puck from the sticks of onrushing opponents. In addition, few defencemen In Uia league today can carry the puck out of their own end- one of the most important func- tions of such au- thority. An all-star at mid-season, Tremblay is having what could turn out to be his best offensive output of his lengthy career, 49 ASSISTS ALREADY So far he has scored six goals and has assisted in 49 others. Last season, his best, Tremblay scored 11 goals and assisted in 52 others for a career-high 63 points. As a bonus, he provided the Montreal club with three goals and 14 assists in its 20- game drive to the Stanley Cup. In addition to attempting to better last season's point total, Tremblay will be busy this weekend trying to help the Can- adiens overtake second-place New York Rangers in the NHL's East Division race. The Canadiens are riding an It- game unbeaten victo- ries and one tie. Both the Rangers, with 103 points and the Canadiens with 99, have eight games remaining in the 78-game schedule. The Canadiens are at home to Minnesota North Stars in one of four contests scheduled for to- night.

King Clancy, Leafs interim coach, says Toronto fans are among the best in the Na- tional Hockey League but ho wishes they would stop chant- ing "Shoot! Shoot! when Leafs are working a power play. "I don't want the guys to shoot until they have a legiti- mate scoring opportunity, pre- ferably a point-blank shot at the said Clancy. CONESTOGA MOTOR HOME 1502 2nd AVE. i. by tEIHBRIDGE, A IT A.

Friday night's two schedule' ;ames saw Vancouver at Bui :alo and California at St. Louis MORE CONSISTENT In other seasons, the bigges knock against Tremblay has been his failure to play well o the road. But coach Scotty man of the Canadiens said Fri day that the defence man appar ently has overcome this obsta cle to become "consistent" dur ing road games. Since the club started Us re- cent move up, Tremblay been pretty Bowma said. "Sure, he's been caught couple of times, but not to often." Tremblay probably draws a tention because of his vast re] ertoire of fancy feints and h forays into opposition territor; But his blunders stand out the more because of these. Gilles Tremblay, no relatlo to J. C., but a long-time team mate before his retiremen' probably sums up.the defenct man's style best. "When's he's right he coul play a whole shift without Gilles says.

New setting doesn't help Oakland By IAN MacLAINE Canadian Press Slnff Writer California Golden Seals were laying in an unfamiliar selling Mday night, so there's little oubt they were satisfied with he 2-2 outcome of their Na- tional Hockey League game with St. Louis Blues. The Seals were playing on home ice, the Oaklaiid-Alameda County Coliseum, but more than fans jammed the arena where the players are usually ANNUAL banquet of the Lethbridge Fish and Game Association will be held tonight (Sat- urday) starting at p.m. Refreshments will be followed by the banquet at 7 p.m. and dancing at 9 p.m. Charge is per per- son, with no membership requirements. The banquet will be held in Ericksen's Family Restaurant. There may be some tickets available at the door. Foremost will be providing the music. If you have an itclung to catch some lunker trout before the lakes and streams of southern Al- berta are open, why not take a whack at the dolly vardens and rainbows in Kootenay Lake? Sam Kadonaga recently took a 15 pounder on a blue-black. This was a repeat to a similar-sized rain- bow Sam took a week earlier in (he big lake. George Taggart took a 10-pound dolly out of the lake near Boswell. Several other hits are reported from the Koot- enays, but In the majority of the instances anglers were unable to hold onto their strikes. Don't forget storms can whip up quickly at this time of the year on the Kootenay. In this pan of the country, we're still hanging on to see what happens at Tyrrell's Lake. There have been some reports there has been an extensive win- ter kill because of a scarcity of oxygen in the water, but this has not been substantiated. A biological report released this year suggested there are very few rainbows left in Tyrrell's, despite the heavy stockings that have taken place during the past two years. High water temperatures, water with high salt content and heavy kills by scavenging sea- gulls are given as some of the reasons for the high mortality. Nevertheless, scores of anglers refuse to give up on Tyrrell's and their efforts appear to be paying off at least to some degree. Happiest are the an- glers from nearby New Dayton, Warner and Milk River who reported good catches last fall and again through the ice during the whiter when weather con- ditions permitted. Members of the TyrreU's Lake Fishermen's As- sociation placed a new screen at the intake near the south-east corner of the lake during the past week. Wind action is starting to open the shoreline and if the blow continues, a sizeable portion the lake should be open by this weekend. About 150 feet of the shore is clear of Ice around the south-east corner. One overly-anxious rainbow ap- peared to want to jump the screen gate after the screening was placed in position. Some anglers report catches of two and three trout per outing. Size has varied from two to four pounds. Bets are there should be plenty of action at the lake this spring. Even the non-believers are expected to be out. We'll just have to wait and see. reconciled to listening to echoes in emptiness. Blues' Frank St. Marseille ruined an otlierwise perfect evening wlien he rammed in his own rebound early in the third period to pull St. Louis on even terms after the Seals had held leads of 1-0 and 2-1. The result did little to straighten out the tangled West Division playoff race and lelt St. Louts in third place, ono point up on the Seals and two ahead of Philadelphia Flyers with Pittsburgh Penguins an- ther two points back. The only other game sehed- .ed Friday was an East Divi- ion battle of futility where Van' ouver Canucks, in the cellar, .osed within two points of sixth-place Biiffalo by dump-ing 10 Sabres 6-2, With California and St, Louis die tonight, Philadelphia and 'iltsburgh will be making up ieir game in hand, the Flyers t home to New York Rangers and the Penguins visiting Los Angeles Kings. IAWKS CAN CLINCH Elsewhere, Chicago Black lawks can nail down first place n the West during their visit to 'oronlo's Maple Leaf Gardens vhile Minnesota North Stars Montreal Canadiens, The North S'lars are in Boston against the Bruins and St. Louis at Vancouver for Sunday after- noon games while Toronto visits tew York, Montreal is at De roit Red Wings, Buffalo in Chi- cago and Pittsburgh at Califor- nia at night. The fans in the seat Coliseum were the most ans the Seals have been able to draw with an expansion club In own. Even the pro-expansion Chicago, Detroit, Montreal, New York and Tbron no certain box-office at ractions. But with the Californi ans un- dergoing a near complete house- cleaning since Cliarley Finley moved in over a year ago, and n the heat of a playoff battle the Kelly green-clad Seals are z young and hustling club that lave been attracting fans on the road. FANS TAKE NOTFCE It was only a matter of time aefore the Bay Area started to ,ake notice. In Buffalo, goals by Andri Boudrias, Dave Baton and Tec Taylor in the seiond period broke up a I-t game and sen (he Canucks away to a 6-1 lea( before Craig Ramsay closed ou the Buffalo scoring with 10 sec onds left in the game. The Canucks, with dgh games remaining, have tw games in hand on the Sabres. In other developments Friday Rangers' higli-scoring winger Rod Gilbert, left the team to re- turn to New York to underg examination of a muscle injury in his neck. However, he isn' expected to miss tonight's game t Philadelphia. The Flyers, meanwhile, have run into a rash of goaltending n juries and called up Bob Sued- on from Seattle Totems of the Vestera Hockey League to sup- For the record: The Lethbridge Fish and Game Association last year donated ?300 to a deserving stu- dent taking conservation at the Lethbridge Commu- nity College. This is to take the place of several small contributions the association has made annually in the past. And, work parties are being planned by the asso- ciation to complete the pair of skeet traps the or- ganization purchased last year for One build- ing has already been set up; the second is nearly ready to go. Range chairman Bob Vair says there'll be a need for several work parties to complete the installations. Hunters are in for a bad time unless they smarten up and realize just what is happening. The Munici- pal District of Foothills has now made it illegal to shoot on privale or public property within the MD. The MD of Rockyview passed a bylaw to that effect last year. The two MDs surround the city of Calgary and stretch out into the neighboring farm and ranchlands. The bylaw action is a follow-up to complaints by fanners and ranchers concerning pro- erty damage and unsafe conditions that result from indiscriminate shooting by a few punks. The national park service has decided it will can- cel this year the operations of nine youth hostels in Banff National Park. Park officials feel that by cater- ing to the youths, it is creating a precedent and fav- oring a select group. How right, and about time. Minor hockey Grant Weins scored two sec- ond period goals and guided tho Canucks to a hard fought 3-2 win over the Tigeis last night.
