Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 30, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 _ THE UTHBRIDGE HERAID Wednesday, May 30, 1973 Ranger honored Steve Vickers of the New York Rangers was named rookie-of-fhe-year in the National Hockey League today. He became the first Ranger in 19 years to win the honor. Vickers chosen MONTREAL (CP) Steve Vickers, a 30-goal scorer in his first National Hockey League season, was named Tuesday as the winner of the Calder Tro- phy, awarded annually to the NHL's top rookie. Vickers, 22. received 103 points compared with 74 for runner-up Bill Barber in the voting conducted by representa- tives of the Professional Hockey Writers' Association in the 16 NHL cities. Right winger Bill Harris of New York Islanders received 48 points; Jini Schoenfeld, the rug- ged Buffalo Sabres defenceman, was next with 46 and Daniel Bouchard, a goaltendier with At- Flames, got 42. In all 15 players, representing 12 NHL teams, received votes. Points were awarded on the basis of five for a first choice, three for a second and one for a third. Vickers'a win in the Calder voting marked the first time in 19 years that a member of the Rangers has been recognized as the NHL's top rookie. Camille Henry won the award in 1954 after scoring 24 goals in his rookie season with New York. In 62 games this season, Vick- ers scored 30 goals and 23 as- sists for 53 points, the most ever scored by a Ranger rookie, surpassing by six the total recorded by H'3nry in 1954. One of the things Vickers did in his rookie year was score three goals in consecutive games, against Los Angeles Kings Nov. 12 and Philadelphia Flyers Nov. 15. It was the first time that feat had ever been performed by a first-year player in the league. He was injured in a game against Pittsburgh as Penguins' defenceman Darryl Edcstrand nailed him with a solid check. The resulting leg injury kept him out of action until Dec. 24. Lanny MacDonald holding out on Maple Leah Canadians continue to insure for future By IAN MacLAINE Canadian Press Staff Wr ter "Right in the middle of lam- bing season, Billy MacMil- said Tuesday night from his farm at Southport, P.E.I. He was referring to the National Hotkey League trade an- nounced earlier in the day that sent him to New York Islanders from Atlanta Flames. It Vv-as 24 hours after Flames' general manager Cliff Fletcher had phoned to tell him of the impending announcement so he iad had an opportunity to con- sider the future. 'I'm not too disappointed said the rugged 30-year- old left winger who has found himself the surprised man out for the second time in as many years. "I enjoyed Alanta, but I'm really looking forward to New York. "The only place to go is up." MacMillan went to the Island- ers to complete a Feb. 13 trade in which the Flames received defenceman Arnie Brown for another left winger, Ernie Hickc. 'I WAS "Sure I was surprised when Sir. Fletcher told me of the MacMillan said. "I just thought to myself, 'What kind of a deal is that, two-for-one.' It was almost a year ago, at the June draft meetings in Mon- treal, that MacMillan, laid up in Toronto's Wellesley Hospital with an ailing back, was in- formed that Toronto Maple Leafs had left him unprotected and he had been taken by At- lanta in the expansion draft. The Charlotletown native was disappointed the Toronto organ- ization had not told him they were not protecting him and ad- mitted at the time he was con- sidering an offer from Min- nesota Fighting Saints of the fkdgling World Hockey Associ- ation. After meeting with Fletcher and coach Bernie Geoffrion of the new NHL franchise, how- ever, MacMillan agreed to go to Atlanta. Montreal Canadiens, mean- while, continued to insure their future by trading off talent- proven players to have-not teams for unnamed players and future considerations.

In another deal, the Cana- diens sent defencemen Dale Ho- ganson and Bob Murray along with right winger Chuck Arna- son to Atlanta. In return, they'll get a player to be named later and future considerations. Hoganson had already signed a contract with Quebec Nor- diques of the WHA after spend- ing most of the 1972-73 season on the Montreal bench.

Lefthander Tom Changnon recorded his first victory of the season by shutting out the Jim- mies on four hits, two by play- ing manager John Elick. The Giants rapped losing pit- cher Ron Peterson for six hits. The Jimmies threatened to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth when bases were load- ed with one out. But Changnon thwarted the effort by fielding a bases-loaded bunt, then struck out rookie outfielder Ken Grove to end the game. Meanwhile Edmorton Tigers scored one run in the bottom of the fifth inning to defeat Red Deer Generals 4-3. The Tigers had scored three runs in the fourth inning to overcome a 3-0 Red Deer lead. The Generals scored once in the first inning and twice more in the second off winner Pat Mur- phy who lasted until the seventh. Murphy was relieved by Micky Hall with the bases load- ed and two out in the seventh. Hall struck out pinch hitter Jim Berlando to end the Gen- erals' last scoring threat. The winning run was scored by Jessie Chavez who singled to lead off the fifth and scored on a double by Ron Wataman- iuk who also had two singles for three hits in four times at bat. The leading Red Deer batter was Roger Pozzo who had a i double and single.

Canadiens' general manager Sam Pollock, who engineered ths various trades, already has in band a number of early round draft choices from sev- eral NHL clubs negotiated from previous dealings. Several other trades were an- nounced during the day. This year's draft at Montreal starts June 10. Toronto traded defenceman Larry Mclntyre, 25, and minor league forward Murray Heatley to Vancouver Canucks for goal- tender Dune Wilson. The Islanders also completed a March 4 trade with Phila- delphia by acquiring defen- ceman Glen Irwin from the Fly- SULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan "T WON'T sacrifice my kids. Winning is not that important." Terry Henning, a member of the medical profession and coach of the Humboldt Bron- cos of the Saskatchewan Jun- ior Hockey League, made these statements sometime back while his club was em- broiled in a Tier 2 junior hockey playoff with Portage La Prairie Terriers, the Man- itoba champs. Henning, following these statements, withdrew his club from the series with the Terriers and as a result was In the first five games of the series -.with the bigger, tougher Terriers, the Broncos were the victims of four spearing incidents. There also two brawls. Six Humboldt players had been hurt, one of them suf- fering such severe nerve dam- age to his leg that Humboldt team officials decided to lay charges under a new section of the Criminal Code of Can- ada which covers assault with intent to injure during sporting events. The fifth game of the ser- ies opened and closed with spearing majors being hand- ed out to Terrier players. "If a team deliberately tries to injure a player who is playing well, by spearing and chopping with their Sticks, then the price of win- ning is too says Dr. You'll recall, if you read this family journal, 16 mem- bers of the medical profes- sion in Lethbridge voiced their opposition to the sus- pension of Dr. Henning. Not, it was clearly pointed out, as an attempt at recognition for themselves, but for the pow- ers that be to take steps now to prevent the ever-increas- ing mayhem that today sur- rounds junior hockey. Like Dr. Henning, the local doctors want a clampdown on dirty hockey. It would seem their re- quests, sent to the CAHA as well as the Canadian Medi- cal Association, have not fallen on deaf ears. Since there is no closed season on belief in a prin- There may, it seems, be a parting of the troubled wat- ers. According to a Prince Al- bert, Saskatchewan, radio station sports director, Joe Kryczfca of Calgary, the past president of the CAHA, will hold an investigation into the suspended, along with the team and team officials, inde- finitely by the Canadian Amateur Hockey Associaton. The Terriers, who went on to win the Canadian title, were the vaunted heroes to their supporters. While on holidays in Mani- toba recently, the Terriers were treated to a civic re- ception. Schools were closed and a parade was held. In Saskatchewan, it was a state of mourning. Dr. Hen- ning and his supporters felt they were right. Henning. "I would not see my players hurt any further just to be a winner." Terriers, who were leading in the series, are, it would seem in the official CAHA books at least, the good guys. Broncos are the villians, and in some circles have been criticized for "ducking then- responsibilities to the ana for "quitting." But, as pointed out in a Toronto Globe and Mail edi- torial, "some pretty low- grade psychology stands be- hind the theory that a boy who encounters dirty, danger- ous hockey play is going through an experience that will 'make a man cf him.' The gung-ho fathers who sub- scribe to this notion are evi- dently not greatly concerned that it could also make a thug of him." cipal. Dr. Henning has been named Coach of the Month by the Sports and Fitness In- structor magazine. The magazine says, and I quote, "Sports and Fitness Instructor sponsors its Coach- ins Honor Award to recognize achievement by Canadian coaches in all sports and at all levels of activity. It is de- signed to focus attention on many areas which often go unrewarded, in the belief that there is more to sport than simply winning. Dr. Terry Henning of Humboldt, Saskat- chewan, was selected be- cause of his uncompromising belief in good, clean a principle which has led him and his team into troubled waters." situation sometime in the not too distant future. The radio report said that Kryczka has informed the Humboldt officials that they may proceed with plans for next season. It is just possible that the CAHA has seen the light.

Irwin, 22, fractured his right ankle twice during the 1972-73 season and played only 16 games. The March trade sent centre Terry Crisp to Philadelphia in return for defenceman Jean Potvin whose brother, Denis, was the No. 1 selection in the NHL's recent junior draft. Islanders, by virtue of their record 60 losses against only 12 victories in the 78-game season, took the younger Potvin and were reported to have signed him to a multi-year contract valued at a year. One of the stipulation the highly-regarded Potvia made while still playing with Ottawa 67s of the Ontario Hockey Asso- ciation Junior A Series was that he wanted to play with his brother. The Toronto trade was In- cluded at a news conference in which the Leafs announced the signings of their second and third selections from the recent junior Bob Neely and Ian Turnbull. Stock cars go this weekend The stock cars are return- ing. This Sunday afternoon, Ex- bition Speedway will be roar- ing again, but with a differ- ence. The executive of the South- ern Alberta Auto Racers, and club members, have turned back the pages of stock car racing for the coming season, it's back to dirt. When the cars take to the track Sunday, time trials are at one and racing begins at two, they will do so on the dirt track as the ashphalt surface has been peeled off. What can only be described as a wild, wild weekend is in store for racing enthusiasts says club president Lamar Na- vratil. The reason for the return to dirt track was simple, it makes for more action and that's what stock car racing is all about. Club members can now build cars at less expense and still It also makes it eas- ier to maintain the track. Be- sides, the big machines, fte modifieds, were a financial burden on the local club. Claimers and C class ma- chines will highlight this week's action with 12 races set to go. It is hoped that there will be races every Sunday. ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES NATIONAL LEAGUE East W U Pet.
