Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Savard seems less enthusiastic Wedtvsdoy, May 16, 1973 THE LETHBRIDCE HERALD -15 Potvin, Lysiak happy with expansion clubs MONTREAL (CP) Denis Potvin and Tom Lysiak, the one-two picks in this year's Na- tional Hockey League draft of amateur players, are happy to have been chosen by expansion teams. But Andre Savard, a high- scoring centre in the Quebec Major Junior A Hockey League, did not appear enthused Tues- day over his selection by Boston Bruins in the draft proceedings, which saw 168 players selected in a marathon five-hour show. "I'm certainly happy I'm with the said Pot- vin, a graduate of Ottawa 67s. "I believe I can help the club. I wish, I hope people don't com- pare me with Bobby Orr. I have my own style and he has his. very happy to be play- ing with my brother Jean. I think pah-ing up with my brother in New York will give me confidence." Potvin, who stands six feet and weighs 200 pounds, as an Ontario Hockey association Jun- ior A offensive defenceraan scored 35 goals and 88 assists and racked up 232 minutes in penalties. He said he had heard from several World Hockey Associ- ation teams but he was "dis- carding the WHA offers" and to play in the NHL. Lysiak. top scoring sensation in the Western Canada Hockey League with 58 goals and 96 as- sists, said be was happy to be going to the Atlanta Flames. He signed a multi-year contract with the Flames Tuesday. Savard, whom everyone had felt would be going to Montreal Canadiens, wound up with Bos- ton Bruins as the No. 6 selec- tion in the draft. "I wasn't disappointed to be picked by Savard said, but added that be would wait until the WHA draft was over at the end of this week before he decided on his future pro hockey career. There is a good chance Sav- ard will be picked by Quebec Les Nordiques in the WHA se- lections and thus may play his pro hockey in the city where he starred as a junior. Vancouver Canucks grabbed forward Dennis Ververgaert as their first pack in the first round. Later in the opening round, they took Bob Dailey, the six foot, five inch defen- ceman who starred for Toronto Marlboros this season. Dailey was picked seventh in the draft, a choice that origi- nally belonged to Minnesota North Stars, who traded it away to Montreal a couple of years ago. Montreal decided to give the choice to the Canucks in ex- change for Vancouver's top draft pick next season. It was one of several deals Sam Pollock, the Canadiens' general manager made during the day. Going into today's ses- sion, he owned eight of the top 32 picks, but only made three selections, dealing the others away. Montreal's first pick was left winger Bob Gainey of Peterborough Petes, the eighth over-all. Pollock had the fifth choice in the draft but gave it to St. Louis, who acquired goaltender John Davidson, a lanky west- erner who played this season for Calgary Centennials. "We're very enthusiastic about getting said Chuck Catto, recently appointed general manager of the Blues. "The club felt we could strengthen our goalfcending situ- ation. He's got a good glove hand. He works his pads and stick well and he likes to mote guys out of his crease. He needs a bit of work on cutting down his angles." Following are the other first- round picks: Stoughton, Flin Flon Bombers, drafted by Pittsburgh and signed along with Wayne "Bianchin, a former team-mate Low qualifiers meet in final The two low qualifiers in the 1973 Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute boys' golf tournament will meet head on in the cham- pionship final today. After third round play ceas- ed at the Lethbridge Country Club Tuesday night, Brad Cox and Kelly Strong were the only two shooters of the original field of 32 still in the running for the championship title and the Southern Stationers trophy. Cox and Strong led all quali- fiers in the opening round last Wednesday. In last night's medal play action, Cox moved into the finals by whipping Gary Craik while Strong advanced by edging Tim Crumley 2-1. Meanwhile Tim Swailes and Baden Pilling leaped into the final playdowns in the first flight of the LCI tourney. Swailes dropped Derr i c k Blasco after 10 holes and Pil- ling dumped Colin Barnes 4-3 to reach the finals. In second flight play, Gordon Klack sidelined Dave Toth and Leroy Kalicum ousted J i m Bechel. Klack and Kalicum will now meet in the second flight finals. Dan Hall grabbed a spot in the third flight finals by knock- ing off Ray Heathcote while Don Manery also acquired a playoff position by defeating Mark Baldry. Coaldale Oilers score victory Coaldale Ober's Oilers reg- istered a 9-2 victory over Leth- bridge Glass in Commercial Men's Slow Pitch League action Tuesday night. Jim Fraser bested Ross Ja- cobson on the mound for the win. In another league match, Ad- vance Lumber-Jacks out-lasted Haico Warriors 19-12. Pat Patterson scored the win for the winners while George Androkovich suffered the loss. and the Penguins' second pick Tuesday. Neely, defenceman, by Toronto Maple Leafs on the 10th pick, acquired by trading their second-round choice and the rights to negotiate with goalten- der Bernie Parent. Richardson, goalten- der with New Westminster Bruins, by Detroit Red Wings. Titanic, forward, by Buffalo Sabres. Rota, the WCHL's top goal scorer with 73 for Ed- monton, by Chicago Black Hawks. Middleton, forward with Oshawa Generals, by New York Rangers. Mercredi, forward from New Westminster, by Atlanta, using Montreal's first-round se- lection. Minnesota's first pick in the second round was forward Blake Dunlop of Ottawa 67s while Philadelphia's initial pick was Larry Goodenough, a de- fenceman with London Knights, the 20th over-all selection. Los Angeles in the second round chose Russ Walker of Saskatoon Blades while California selected Jeff Jacques of St. Catharines Black Hawks in the third round. The three major junior OHA, and j round, when Atlanta Flames selected for- ward Dean Talafous from the University of Wisconsin and Montreal, using the St. Louis turn, chose defenceman Alan Hangsleben from the University of North Dakota. This year's draft will be a profitable one for amateur hockey. The NHL pays the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association for each of the first 32 players drafted and another 000 when the player signs a pro- fessional contract. The second 32 also bring a selection price, but only i when they sign with a pro club. Those picked 65th to 168th cost the selecting NHL team apiece, plus an additional when they become profes- sionals. The CAHA distributes the funds for the NHL down through its development sys- tems to the amateur teams that have trained the players. Neiv additions King Clancy, (centre) vics-prssidsnt of Torenta Map's Leafs, sits with Lanny McDonald (left) formerly of Medicine Hat Tigers and Bob Neeley, Peterborough Petes, acquired by Le-ofs at tha annual NHL amateur draft meetings hsld in Montreal Tuesday, NHL displayed poor attitude TORONTO (CP) Gary Da- vidson, president of the World Hockey Association, isn't pro- posing any toasts to the Na- tional Hockey League, but claims that much of the WHA's first-year success was due to the attitude of the rival estab- lished league. Davidson arrived Tuesday night to prepare for the WHA's three-day annual meeting which begins toe! ay with a review of the first year, league expansion, television contracts and the league draft among the items for discussion. Asked for his own review of the first year and whether the new league might have done anything differently, Davidson said the WHA might have been more selective about where it placed its franchises. Asked if, at any time, the league founders thought they should have spent another year preparing the groundwork be- fore taking to the ice, Davidson said: ''No. If we had waited an- other year we would never have got started. "We got going mainly be- cause the attitude of the NHL was one of arrogance. They didn't treat us seriously and we were able to take advantage of thai. "If we had waited another year, the same atmosphere might not have prevailed." The 38-year-old California lawyer, who also founded the American Basketball Associ- ation, was referring mainly to the WHA's ability to sign more than 50 players from NHL ros- ters last year plus more than JOO from minor league NHL af- filiates. The WHA raids last year came despite the fact that the expansion league made known the names of players each of its clubs and were seeking to sign from NHL ros- ters. This year, however, the WHA's draft of professional players will be held behind closed doors Thursday to pre- vent the NHL teams from find- ing out which of their players the WHA is after. The third day of meetings, here will be taken up with draft of over-age amateurs. Jack Nichlaus DON'T EVER LET THE CONTOUR OF 7HE pRiRWRY DICTRTE HOW HIGH YOU TEE UP.

Hide feature Old-Timers too tough for Media The Lethbridge Miners' Li- brary Old-Timers were at their best as they scored an impres- sive 10-3 victory over the News Media Monsters to help cel- ebrate the opening of the 1973 Southern Alberta Major Men's Fastball League Tuesday night. A good crowd was on hand at the Dave Elton fastball park, which helped raise do- nated to the Sunrise Ranch. In last night's exhibition tilt, the Old-Timers saw themselves trailing 2-1 after the first inning but stormed back with two more runs in the second and another six in the fifth. Jerry Stilson went the dis- tance on the mound for the Old-Timers whi'e sorter Al Pilling suffered the loss. Meanwhile in the actual league opener last night, the Lethbridge Miners earned a stunning 6-0 win over the Leth- bridge Hotel North Stars. Richard Mercier picked up the mound win by besting Ron Zasadny in the seven inning af- fair. Garth Lamb paced the Miners at the plate stroking a triple and a pair of singles while Danny Santoni and Don Dietzen managed single home runs.
