Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, November 15. 1974 DISNEYLAND and CALIFORNIA 18 day escorted tour Depart Lethbridge January 16, 1975 February 15, 1875 Priced at only per paraon double occupancy ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL PHONE 328-3201 The Herald Sports LETHBRIDGE OFFICE FURNITURE LTD. Lower Laval 7th Street Shopping Mall LathbrMga, Albarta Phone (403) 328-7411 HOMEAND OFFICE SAFES Coach Earl Ingarfield of the Lethbridge Broncos of the Western Canada Hockey League, would love to see the age limit of the draft raised, even one year. Ingarfield. preparing his Broncos for tonight's visit by Win- nipeg Clubs, knows first-hand just how much help an extra year of junior hockey can be to a young man. Before taking the post of coach and assistant general manager of the Broncos, Ingarfield scouted, coached and was director of player personnel for the New York Islanders of the National Hockey League. He will tell you that the extra year can make all the difference in the world to an 18-year-old player seeking to make hockey his future. A story datelined Ottawa Thursday indicated there is grow- ing concern among amateur hockey groups concerning the draft age now in effect. A young man becomes eligible for the draft at the age of 18 but this past year the professionals drafted what they called "exceptional who were under the draft age but con- sidered good enough to play pro. Twenty four were drafted and subsequently 16 turned professional. Government representatives as well as National Hockey League, World Hockey Association and Canadian Amateur Hockey Association officials took part in a meeting at which no decisions were reached However, more meetings are planned in the near future. "Our league would be much stronger this year if the under- age draft had not taken said Ingarfield. While there are many good examples, Ingarfield pointed to Grant Mulvey of the Calgary Centennials. With the Cents look- ing at a record of only one win thus far a player like Mulvey would help them immensely. Ingarfield need look no further than his own club and Bryan Trottier. New York Islanders drafted Trottier as a 17-year-old and were looking to turn him professional this winter. Al Arbour, coach of the Islanders, was in Lethbridge when Trottier's signing was announced and stated at that time that the Islanders were very high on Trottier and would have turned him professional had Ingarfield not been the coach of the Bron- cos "Ingarfield knows the Islanders system very said Ar- bour at the time, "and we feel he will be able to help Trottier a great deal Physically a 17-year-old may be ready for professional hockey, but what about mentally? The years from 16-19 are very formidable ones, the first years of manhood. Trottier, and who can blame a 17-year-old with his talent and self confidence, expressed disappointment when the news first reached him that he would be staying in junior another year. However, a month and a half into the season Trottier will tell you he can only learn from Ingarfield and that his tutorship will benefit him m the long run. Ingarfie'.d may sound selfish when he tells you that the drafting of players with two and three years junior eligibility can be harmful to the young man and is having an effect on junior hockey as a whole, he is not. Hockey has been Ingarfield's way of life for1 a good many years. He would not stand in the way of any young player he thought was ready for pro competition. What he is saying, is simply that one more year of junior will not only be beneficial to the player but will pay more dividends to the professional team. "Junior hockey, particularily major junior, is the breeding ground for pro players." points out Ingarfield. "It will only hurt them in the long run." Nothing definite has been decided. It may take some time for the amateurs and pros to reach a suitable agreement. It should take a great deal of thought on both parties. The futures of a lot of young men hang in the balance. Prongfaorias open season against T-Birds tonight The University of Lethbridge Pronghorns and their full court press will be put to the test tonight when they open their Canada West University Athletic Association season at the U of L gym- nasium. At p.m., the locals will tip-off against the UBC Thunderbnds, who appear ready to move back into the basketball spotlight after a pair of rebuilding years. The T-Birds have had their problems since the departure of Ron Thorsen two years ago, but this season they boast a line-up which features four returning starters, two of whom are doubtful starters due to the influx of new talent. Coach Peter Mullins raided last year's Simon Fraser University lineup to get Steve Pettifer, who threatens to displace 611" Mike McKay as the Birds' leader. Last year, McKay was UBC's second leading scorer and the top rebounder, averaging 12.9 points and 15 boards per game. The T-Birds also have a couple of second-team all-stars to call on, in the per- sons of forward Ralph Turner and guard Blake Iverson. Meanwhile, coach Robin Fry is hopeful that his full-court press continues to work as it did in a pair of triumphs in Regina last weekend "The boys will really have to work on the press he says. "Because UBC has got quite a ballclub this year." Fry relies on a team effort more than on any one ball player, but the club has been led in the exhibition season by forwards Curt Wolsey and Phil Letham, and rookie guard Richard Foggo. The Pronghorn women, Coached by Jack Lilja, will also get their baptism of fire tonight when they meet the three-time Canadian champion UBC Thunderettes. Lilja's team has improved vastly over last year, when they finished with a 0-20 record, but the Thunderettes are peren- nially one of the top women's teams in the country and will present no easy task. Game time for the women is p.m. MIKE MCKAY Football stars honored The Southern Alberta High School Football League wound up its year with an awards banquet at the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute. Western Division Com- missioner Bob Parkyn was the master of ceremonies for the evening and guest speaker was Steve Fallwell of CJOC radio and television. A highlight of the meeting was the toast to the coaches made by a representative of the three teams in the division. Randy Rae of the Winston Churchill Bulldogs toasted Pete Neufeld and his staff: Mark Baldry of the LCI Rams toasted Jim Whitelaw and his staff: and Allan Boras of the Catholic Central Cougars toasted Dean Dahl and assistants. The two team trophies, for the Western Division cham- pionship and the league cham- pionship, went to the Catholic Central Cougars who finished the year with a six win, one tie and no loss record. Allan Boras accepted the awards on behalf of his team-mates. Dave Jackson of the Cougars won the division scor- ing championship while Mark Baldry of the Rams was presented with the top rusher award. Derek Redman of the Bulldogs was named the top passer in the division and team-mate Albert Dodson was designated as the top lineman. Catholic Central Cougars placed six men on the division's all star team while the LCI Rams and Winston Churchill Bulldogs placed four apiece on the squad. DOES YOUR FURNACE THIS? Bruins bounced by Sabres extend lead to nine The offensive unit consists of Barry Schmidt, Bulldogs, at end: Rick Hovan, Cougars, at tackle; Sid Collier, Rams, at guard. Derek Redman, Bulldogs at quarterback; and running backs Dave Jackson of the Cougars and Mark Baldry of the Rams. Defensively the team features Steve Devcic of the Cougars at one end position and Kevin Malmberg of the Rams at the other; Barry Niedermier, Cougars as the tackle; George Seiller of the Cougars as middle guard; linebackers Albert Dodson of the Bulldogs and team-mate Brent Hamilton, and defen- sive backs are Dav.e Rohovie of the Cougars and the Rams' Tracy Cooler. By THE CANADIAN PRESS Henri Richard, hobbling around with a broken ankle, was saying that perhaps Mon- treal Canadiens, without him in the lineup, might begin to "come on strong." After losing 8-6 to Buffalo Sabres when Richard left the game with his injury Wednes- day night, the Canadiens rallied Thursday night to dump Boston Bruins 4-1. In the only other National Hockey League game, Buffalo Sabres beat Minnesota North Stars 5-3, moving nine points in front of the Bruins in the Division 4 race. Richard, the Montreal cap- tain, said his injury will keep him out of the lineup eight to 10 weeks. But he said the team has been known to rally in the past when one of its top players was sidelined with in- juries. "I don't see why they should miss said Richard. "Our team has so many good hockey players." DRYDEN WAS SHARP Guy Lafleur scored twice against Boston goalie Gilles Gilbert and Montreal net- minder Ken Dryden had one of his best games this season, stopping 39 Boston shots. Defenceman Guy Lapointe, who scored three times against Buffalo Wednesday, got his ninth goal of the season and Jacques Lemaire added the other Montreal goal. League points leader Bobby Orr of the Bruins beat Dryden for his 10th goal of the season. The Canadiens now are four points behind leading Los Angeles in Division 3.
