Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 1, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta y, Novtmbir 1, 1972 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 9 Long acclaimed greatest goaltender in modern times iiiiiii Bill Durnan succumbs to ill health at 57 TORONTO (CP) Bill Dur- nan, long acclaimed the great- est goaltander in modern times, died Tuesday night at the age of 57. He had been in failing health for some time and en- tered hospital last Thursday. Durnan reached the National Upstart coast club one point out of first Pulford has done quite a job By THE. CANADIAN PRESS It may be a little early to start tooting any horns, but no- body can deny Bobby Pulford his just plaudits. The rookie National Hockey League coach has molded Los Angeles Kings into early-season wonders and the west coast team has responded to his grooming. The Kings made it five wins in a row Tuesday night, 4-1 over Vancouver Canucks, to set a club record and moved alone into second place in the ANDY CAPF I THINK-WE OUGHT TO AWE THE EFFORT 1BWSITMV UHaEFREB.FET THEM 'E LOST IS WEALTH TWIN' T'SET'EADW West, one point behind Chi- cago Black Hawks.

Players hold upper hand now MIAMI BEACH (AP) Clar- ence Campbell, head of the Na- tional Hockey League, isn't overly optimistic that the NHL board of governors or the play- ers will approve another exhibi- tion series against the Soviet Union's all-star hockey team. "There is a considerable dis- parity of opinion on the advis- ability of staging the series this Campbell said Tuesday during the second day of the beard's three-day meeting. Even if the governors allow exhibitions next year, Campbell warns, final approval must come from players. There was grumbling by some players on Team Canada in this year's inaugural series with Russia over loss of prac- Nicklaus honored PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) Jack Nicklaus, who failed in his attempt to win the Grand Slam but did capture six championships in 1972, was named the Professional Golf Association's Player of the Year today. The announcement of Nick- laus' selection by Warren Or- lick, PGA president, was not surprising since the Columbus, Ohio, native won both the Mas- ters and the U.S. Open titles and nearly a record. Nicklaus began the year by announcing his intention of try- ing to win professional golf's big four Mas- ters, U.S. Open, British Open and PGA. He won the first two but was defeated on the last bole of the British Open by de- fending champion Lee Trevino, the 1971 Player of the Year. Garry Player of South Africa won the PGA, in which Nick- laus tied for 13th. tice time from regular NHL camps. Team Canada had to rally to win the series. Asked about the possibility of professional hockey expanding into European cities, Campbell said: "In the case of the NHL, I don't think there's any possi- bility of it being a transatlantic league because that's not rea- listic. "It's expensive and time-was- ting, that's the 68-year- old head of the NHL explained. 'In the current league, we have tried to avoid long black- outs (road We to play our teams pretty regu- larly." Campbell said the new World Hockey Association has cut down on the expansion possi- bilities in the United Slates by grabbing personnel for its 12 teams, but not by eliminating potential sites. He isn't sure the southern U.S. can be considered among the sites. "If you get an au- dience that likes action, then the action is the same north or south of the Mason-Dixon he said. But he admitted that Mem- phis failed as a hockey town and Oakland and Los Angeles are running below NHL attend- ance standards partly because they are warm-weather cities where hockey is not a natural sport. He witlilield comment on what the NHL will do if it loses a court challenge by the WHA on the NHL reserve clause and a countersuit by the NHL. "We haven't even :on- templated that yet." he said. But he said merger would not be the solution to a bidding war between the leagues. "What would you he asked. "Take the composition of the present WHA league. "They have put teams in six of the seven cities where we are operating. That's not a merger situation." Players record victory WASHINGTON (AP) The National Football League Play- ers Association scored a major victory over the club owners Tuesday in disputes over fines assessed for leaving the bench during a fight, on the playing Held and on the use of artificial turf. A National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) hearing officer has recommended that the NFL owners be ordered to rescind their automatic fine of against any player leaving the bench during a fight. Judge Marvin Welles, hearing officer, said the provision for automatic fines is an unfair la- bor practice, a charge brought by the NFL Players Associ- ation. The proposed order would force the league to repay all players for such fines, in- cluding interest of six per cent a year. An association spokes- man said the ruling would af- fect 106 players and involve in fine money. Welles said also that artificial turf is a mandatory subject for collective bargaining since its installation constitutes change in working conditions. The Players Association has argued that synthetic turf is more conducive to injuries. Both sides have 20 days in which to appeal the recom mended ruling to the full five- man NLRB. If there is no ap- peal, the recommendation of the administrative law judge becomes final. If the owners re- fuse to accept the board's nil ing they can appeal in federal court. Gaylorcl Perry tops Cy Young NEW YORK (AP) Gaylord Perry, the rangy Cleveland right hander, was named win ner Tuesday of the 1972 Cy Young Award as the best pitch er in the American League. The 34-year-old Indians' ace had a 24-16 record and an earned-run average of 1.92, sec ond to the league's best, the 1.91 by Luis Tiant of Boston. In winning the Cy Young Award, Perry duplicated the feat of his brother, Jjny who was voted the American League's top pitcher at Minne- sota in 1970.- Perry narrowly edged Wilbur Wood, Chicago White Sox knuckleballcr, in the vote o the Baseball Writers Associa lion of America.

GORING SCORES 3 Butch Goring, a 21-goal acorer last year, scored three joals against Vancouver, in- cluding the winner, in a game at Los Angeles that was mar- red by two third-period fights. Vancouver's Greg Boddy and rookie Don Kozak precipitated the fireworks at of the pe- riod. BUI Lesuk of the Kings md Bobby Schmautz of Van- couver clashed at All four were nailed with mi- nors and majors. Bobby La- londe ruined goaltender Gary Edwards' shutout at of the final period as the Kings completely dominated play and outshot the visitors 36-17 in the game. The Kings have made few changes from their lineup of a year ago, but it appeared ob- vious from the outset of the season there was a new spirit in tine club. One of the big factors has been the addition to the defence of veteran Terry Harper and the development of 3airy Long, a 23-ytar-old up from Portland Buckaroos of the Western League. Meanwhile the Sharks showed their teeth Tuesday night in Quebec City. Los Angeles Sharks survived a minor rhubarb at the Coli seum to emerge 4-2 victor; over the Nordiques in Worlt Hockey Association action. Most of the disturbance tha kept referee Ron Ego bus; came in the second period with the visiting Sharks trailing 2-1. Gary Veneruzzo of Los Ange- les and Pierre Roy of Quebec were assessed fighting majors Bart Crashley of the Sharks and Quebec's Robert Guindon took double minors, and Steve Sutherland of Los Angeles was nailed with a 10-minute miscon duct in the disturbance at Bernie MacNeil scored before the period ended and scored again along with Crashley the third period to lift the Sharks into a third-place tie with Houston Aeros in the Western Division. The Aeros kept pace whei Ted Taylor's routine slap sho was the only goal of the thirt period as Houston edged Al berta Oilers 4-3 at Edmonton In the only other game, Chi cago Cougars scored three times in the third period to de- feat Winnipeg Jets 3-1.

In his brief career, the big, riendly giant established a lost of records, winning the Ve- ina Trophy six of the seven 'ears and being named to the irst NHL all-star team six times. Ironically, the only man to Dreak Durnan's string of Ve- ina and all-star awards was Walter (Turk) Broda of Toronto Maple Leafs, who died Oct. 17. William Ronald Durnan was in Toronto Jan. 22, 1915, and embarked on a Softball ea- eer at the age of 16 that was o propel him into the sporting imelight long before he the NHL. NO ICE SENSATION He pitched with and against he outstanding players of the 1930s. Durnan starred in almost every sport in his younger days, except on the ice. An' almost forgotten pair of old skates got him started in mblic school and led him into Jockey's Hall of Fame in 1964. He got his biggest hockey in 1931, helping Max Sil- verman's Sudbury Wolves to the Canadian junior hockey championship. He was ear- marked for the Leafs until twisted knee in 1932 set his ca- reer back temporarily when To- ronto lost interest. Durnan went north again, spending four years with Kirk- land Lake Blue Devils that ter- minated in 1940' with the Allan Cup, emblematic of Canadian senior hockey champions. Montreal Royals lured Dur- nan away from the northland the following year and, in 1943, the Canadiens invited him to their training camp. His ambidextrous style, trait learned early in his career that enabled him to use the stick in either hand, impressec the Canadiens who finally per suaded him to turn pro at ari age when most hockey players were retiring. jSETS RECORD PACE Duman was an immediate success, becoming the firs ever rookie to win the Vezina Trophy as the Canadiens swep to a Stanley Cup triumph in 1944, and he held the award for four straight firs goaltender to do so. Big at 6-foot-2 and 200 pounds, and friendly to the point where he was almost too easy-going, Durnan retired many times before finally call- ing it quits for good during the 1950 playoffs. Despite his meteoric career, he suffered many a heart ache in Montreal where the fans never let him forget the man he replaced, Paul Bibeault. When the Canadiens were fading in 1947, cries of "We want Bibeault. We want Bibeault" followed him every- where and after one dis- appointing perfornv.ince against Detroit at the Forum he sug- gested to general manager Frank Selke, "You'd better get Bibeault. "It looks as though I'm about through." But Durnan continued to per- form miracles in the Montreal goal and wrapped up his fourth successive- Vezina Trophy. In 383 regular season games, Durnan registered 34 shutouts and allowed a meagre 2.35 .goals against per outing. In 45 playoff games, he had a 2.20 goals-against mark and two shutouts. During the 194W9 season, he set a modern NHL record of scoreless play, shutting out the opposition for 309 minutes and 1 seconds. The string included our successive shutouts that nded on March 9, 1949, when Gaye Stewart scored for Chi- ago Black Hawks at of be second period. Following his retirement, )uman coached several teams ncluding the Kitchener-Water- oo Dutchmen for almost three 'ears. He quit that team in De- Herron faces Henley, their goal is Schenley MONTREAL (CP) Two of he greatest offensive threats in he Canadian Football Garney Henley of lamilton Tiger-Cats and little Mack Herron, the bulldozing running back from Winnipeg eember, 1959, because of a In- ternal squabble as the Ontario Hockey Association senior club prepared for the 1960 Winter Olympics. With the exception of a few years in Ottawa as a partner in an ill-fated hotel venture that ended in bankruptcy, Durnan's business career centred mainly on the brewing industry. In recent years, he confined most of his sporting interests, as did his friend Broda, to the horse races. He Is survived by his widow, Amanda, two daughters, Mrs. Paul (Deanna) Cluff and Mrs. Brenda Batty, a son, Bill, and one grandson. Funeral arrangement! have not been completed.
