Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 22, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta TH! ISTKJKiSS! HIBALB ftWay, May McKenzie Named To Second All-Star Team Behind Howe Post Season Earnings Another Record For Bobby MONTREAL (CP) Bashful Bobby Orr, Boston Bruins 22- year-old defence star, has swept just about every award availa- ble to him this season. But he has attained another mark today. Tliis one is a whop- ping record for post- season earnings for a National Hockey League player. Orr, along with rookie goal- tender Tony Esposito of Chicago Black Hawks, was a unanimous choice by National Hockey League W r i t o r s' Association members in the 12 league cities for first-team all-star honors. Selection to the first team carries a prize, while members of the second team are awarded by the NHL. Joining Orr and gpaltender Esposito on the first team are omore with New York Rangers centre Phil the Bruins, 42 year-old Gordie Howe of Detroi Red Wings at right wing and dynamic Bobby Hull of Chicagi on the left side. Orr end Tony Esposito polled a perfect ISO-point score as the selectors chose them on the defenceman Brad Park, a soph-1 basis of five for a first-placi ANDY CAPP IT WAS A SUbbEN IMPULSE, OFFICER. NER COMPLETELY WRECKIN IMPULSE I'M COIN1 T1 LOCK VOU -1 UP F' THE NIGHT Canucks Open September 21 Calgary Site Of Camp VANCOUVER (CP) Van- couver Canucks will open their 1970-71 National Hockey League training camp Sept. 11 in Cal- gary, general manager Bud Poile announced Thursday. Poile also told a press con- ference that Canucks, who play- ed in the Western Hockey League last season and are making their NHL debut next season, will play five exhibi- tion games against two NHL teams. Ganvs against Chicago Black Hawks will be in Vancouver Sept. 29 and Oct. 1. Canucks will play Minnesota North Stars Sept. 18 in Edmon- ton, Sept. 19 hi Calgary and Sept 20 in Winnipeg. Poile said he is trying to ar- range for a third NHL club to play a series with at least one game in Vancouver. "We'll have between 40 and 50 players at our Calgary camp and another 25-30 at our camp in Rochester." Canucks have a farm club in Rochester Americans of the American League. Poile said the Rochester1 set- up, with coach Dick Gamble in charge, will get under way Sept. 18. Poile also announced the team colors as royal blue with green and white trim. Canucks' first game of the 1970-71 season is set. for Friday Oct. 9 against Los Angeles Kings. Poile said Canucks' east e r n scout Peanuts O'Flaherty is dickering to have two defence- men from Finland attend the training camp and one player from Sweden. He said the two Finnish play- ers, Lasse Okasanen and Jor- ma Psltonen, both about 21, "would have a good chance o( playing NHL-calibre hockey." Poile said the Vancouver hoo- key cluh intends to operate its WHL franchise as well next season but the location is still up in the ah-. Poile's preference is Calgary WRESTLING EXHIBITION AUDITORIUM MAY 25- 8.30 p.m. ABDULLAH THE BUTCHER vs THE MIGHTY URSUS SWEETAN ond HAYES vi IUECK and KROFFAT CARLOS BELAFONTE vs JACK BENCE CHRISTY BROS, vs MARCONI ond CANNON Admission 52 1.50 Box Office opens 7 p.m. Watch STAMPEDE WRESTLING Sat. afternoon and Mon. night on CJLH-TV Chan. 7 but he said if the league won't allow this he is prepared to keep it in Vancouver. "We are also going to oper- ate in Rochester. The club wil] not be sold." On the WHL's in- demnity claim against Canucks for moving from the WHL, he said: "We do not find the amount realistic and don't in- tend to pay it." Lyman Walters, the club's vice president, said the league claims the Canucks failed to conform to regulations when when they changed leagues and must pay the indemnity. Walters said the Vancouver hockey club has offered to pay indemnity which it feels is enough to cover any loss the WHL might feel it will incur as a result of the Can- ucks' move. A hearing is scheduled for June 3 in Vancouver between the Canucks and WHL direc- tors. Canucks' intention to operate their WHL franchise "is for purely selfish said. Poile The fledgling NHL team must develop its own players "in or- der to have a chance of get- ing parity in our division with- in five years." Asked to explain the w Poile replied: "The Stanley Cup." "We are aiming for the play- vote, three for a second and one for a third. Park polled 134 votes, Phil Esposito 139, Howe 158 and Hull 137. Selected to the second team were: G i a c o m i n, New York, Defense a r 1 Brewer, Detroit, 53, Jacques Laperriere, Montreal Cana- diens, 57; Mikita Chicago, 131; Right McKenzie, Boston, 92; Left wing Mahovlich, Detroit, 78. Neither Toronto Maple Leafs, who finished last in the East Di- vision, nor any of the six-team West Division, placed a player on either squad. The closest race was at centre with only eight points separat- ing Phil Esposito and Mikita. The nearest West Division player was Al Arbour, veteran defenceman with St. Louis Blues, Arbour polled 39 votes to Laperriere's 57. Orr's achievements break down tliis way. Earlier tliis month he i named winner of the Hart, Nor- ris and Conn Smythe trophies after winning the Art Ross Trophs as the first-ever defence- man to win the NHL's individ- ual scoring race. The Hart Tro- phy goes to the league's most valuable player, the Norris to the top defenceman and the Com Smythe to the best player in the post-season playoffs. OIT won for the Norris, selection to the first all-star team. In addition, he receives as his share of Boston's Generals But May Lose M and K Generals picked up their second win in the Com mer'tial Mens Fastball League Thursday but the win may be nullified. Generals, a new entry in the league this season, used pitche Al Baird as they dumped the defending-champion Labor Club 10-0. The Labor Club protested the game because Baird, who pitch- ad last season with the Dallas Hotel Cowboys, is supposedly ineligible to pitch in the Com mereial League. Bob Balazs and Terry Rover paced the Generals' attack against losing pitcher Jerry Areshenko as each had a homi run. In the second game, the Con Sractors turned on the steair to blank the Marquis Hole 10-0. Ron Zasadny fired the shut out for the winners while Sig Dobler took the loss. Garth Lamb sparked the Con- factors at the plate with a lome I'm and single while Don 3ietzen added a triple and .wo singles. Two games will be playec next Monday at Davel Elton with the first game, at seven offs next year."

Alan Eagleson of Toronto, lawyer for the NHL Players' Association and handler of Orr's contract dealings with Boston, said he is negotiating a five- year contract for his client. "No doubt about he said. "Orr will be receiving more than any other NHL player has ever received. Even the figure Bruins have come up with already would give him more than anyone." GAP EXISTS Eagleson admits there is con- siderable difference between what the Bruins have offered and what he hopes to get for Orr. Meanwhile, Tony Esposito is_ probably thanking Montre Canadienc for allowing him be drafted by Chicago last Jui and boosting his post seasc earnings to from NHL. Tony failed to hack with Montreal the season b fore, but found instant succes with the Hawks. In addition to his a star bonus, Tony received s top goaltencler and winner the Vezina Trophy for his re ord 15-shutout regular seaso with the Hawks. He won other as rooHe of year and the Calder Troph as runner-up to Orr in th Hart selection, as a mem :er of the East Division all-sta team in mid-season, and as his share of Chicago's tear awards. The last goaltendef to named rookie of the year an win the first-team all-star sele tion was Roger Crozier of troit in 1964-65. Selection of the Esposl Brothers to the first te marked the first time si 1937-38 season that such choice had been made, and on: lie third time brothers Deen picked in the 40-year hi :ory of the all-stars. TWO IN 30s Goaltender Tiny Thompson Boston and left winger Thompson of Chicago were th :irst-team brother act of 1937-3 jonel Conacher, then a Chicag defenceman and right 'harh'e Conacher of Toront were both named to the firs team in 1933-34. Tony Esposito and Park ar making their first appearance on the first team, while other four' selected are hole overs from 1968-69. This is the 15th straight sea son in which Howe has bee named to either the first or sec ond team, breaking the recor of 14 straight which the Detroi veteran shared with Mauric (Rocket) Richard, the forme right winger with Montreal. It is the eighth time in thosi 15 seasons that Howe has been on the first team. Altogethe during his brilliant 24-season career Howe has been namec an all-star 21 times, including a record 12 times to the team. For Hull it marks his seventh consecutive year on the team, tying the all-time recort set by Doug Harvey, former Montreal and New York def encemaa. It is Phil Esposito's seconc straight selection to the firs .earn and his'third consecutive as an all-star. He was the sec- ond team centre in 1967-68. REPEAT SHOWING Giacomin and Mahovlich r'e- ain the second-team berths hey held last season, Laperriere is back on the squad or the first time since 1965-66 vhen he was named to the first earn. Brewer, after a four-season etirement from pro hockey, re- urned to the NHL this season rith Detroit to pick up where he :ft off with Toronto in 1964-65 member of the second team. Mikita missed both teams last eason for the first time in eight ears. Of his previous seven selections, six were to the first :am. McKenzie joins Tony Esposito rod Park as a first-year man. Tie little Boston winger is the irst Boston player to be named o the right-side position on ei- ler team since the late Bobby auer was chosen as the second earn right winger in 1W6-47. The jnly otlwr Boston player ver named as the right winger n all-star teams was Dit Clap- who was on the second quad in 1930-31 and 1934-35. Clapper, the first player to omplete 20 seasons in the NHL, so was named to three first ams and one second team as defenceman. QUITE AN HONOR The 1969-70 hockey season was a big one for Johnny MacKenzie of Nanfon. His the Boston Bruins, won the Stanley (Cup and today Mac- Ken-zie was named to the second all-star team. 1 Fun s Pocza and Roger another Norcrest combined for a game, Barrel Pocza earning the win, the third strike past Angels dumped She as the Cardinals a in a Lakeside Little the Astros r Rapvano had a Gepiieris paced the three singles for the at the plate against while Eandy Eamage pitcher Greg Maxwell three had a double and Pro chipped in with winning pitcher and two singles for a pair of with John Koskoski turned hi a triple and sta ,25 effort in relief as the Braves edged file Giants 5-4 in a Norcrest Little Maxwell picked up the pitching win as the Comets bounced the Dodgers 17-5 in that went into extra innings and struck out seven of Little League an( 10 batters he faced in picking up the pitching verdict.
