Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 2, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta � - THS imffiRrOSE HERAID - FrWay, October 3, 1970 Tallon^ Perreault Shoiv Talents Rookie Stars Score Twice SLIDING SAVE - Vancouver Canucks' goalie Charlie Hodge gets a piece of his pads on the puck to stop a shot by centre Larry Romanchuk of Chicogo Black Hawks in National Hockey League exhibition play in Vancouver Thursday.

(CP) - Ottawa Rough Riders came down hard on tlT? side of speed and offence Thursday as they prepared to meet Winnipeg Blue Bombers Saturday afternoon in a Canadian Football League clash. Coacli Jaclc Gotfca finally put Ken Lehmann on tlie 30-day in jured list and designated Bill Van Burkleo his 14th import for the game. Earlier he had an Dawson Blames Butlin Warfare Breaks Out OTTAWA (CT) - Open wai--fare has again broken out between the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association and the Western Canada Hockey League. CAHA president Earl Dawson said Thursday night that he will give the lOclub Western league a week to live up to its agreement with the CAHA. Otherwise he would call together the CAHA board of directors and recommend that the kague again be expelled from the CAHA. The Western league, with learns in all three Prairie pirov-tooes, broke away from the CAHA three years ago. It was ea^iced back this year with con-cesaons that annoyed some Eastern Canada branches. Dawson told a news conference that the Westerners have broken at least four terms of tiie special agreement signed with the CAHA. Among these special terms were the ri^t of WCHL teams to carry four players each one year beyond the 25-yeaa- age limit established for the CAHA affiliates and increased financial support. Dawson said the blame for the new disagreement lies en- tirely with Ron ButUn of Cair gary, president of the Western league. Butlin was responsible for the quarrels over certaim juniors who originally belonged to OHA clubs and who now here playing for Western clubs, be said. If the Western league again is expelled, it will mean the loss this year of $20,000 for each of the 10 teams in the league. Dawson also said he will recommend to the (Mrectors creation of the office of commissioner of amaiteur hockey. The commissioner would have the power to settle disputes arising from hockey games, s\ispen-sions and other matters decided by telegraphic votes taken from coast to coast. In a news release the CAHA also announced that 182 amateur teams in Canada would share $278,925 for taking part in the development of 115 amateur players named in the June professional hockey draft. The draft, payments are the highest ins^hree years. Under the system^ teams which assisted in the development of each drafted player share in the $3,200 payment from the NHL.

Connolly has earned 3131 points in saddle bronc and 405 in bareback. He has also accumulated 160 points in steer wrestling as well as 65 in team i-oping. Gladstone's points come about after he earned 340 in calf roping, 240 in steer westling and the rest in team roping.

Tb.e whole thdng is a case of nnisical impOTts, Gotta having to clear the way for recent National League cuts Charles Leigh and Glen Wren. Both are fleet running backs who Gotta hopes will serve to keep the heait off flanker Hu^ Oldham and ends Whit Tucket and Freemen White. Mamkins, thought last year to be an adequate replacement for Bo Scott, this year hasn't shown the same drive and ability to get into the holes before they close. This in turn leaives opposing defenders with basically only the receivers to worry about. STEWART STILL OUT So, with Eon Stewart still sitting out his broken arm, Ottawa has been in sore need of a running game, which Gotta hopes he now has, to get Ottawa out of the Eastern Conference cellar. Lehmann, the team's all-satr middle linebacker and defensive bulwark the last two years, has suffered most of tWs season with a pinched nerve in his neck. Feeling sharp pain with each tackle, he has reamined on the bench for the last few games to mounting speculation he would either retire or be cut. He doesn't appear to want to retire and the team Thursday indicated it doesn't want to cut him although Jerry Campbell has movisd into his spot with such aggressive alacrity it seems unlikely Gotta would consider moving him back out. The defence has been the best of the Ottawa game so far this year and taking Van Burkleo, alternate quarterback to Gary Wood as well as punter, out of the defensive backfield shouldn't hurt too much with speedsters such as Al MarceKn th�re to fill the gaps. Because he is a specialist. Van Burkleo still will be available for punting chores. Ordinarily, whoever the designated import replaces must remain on the sidelines for the remainder of the game. REBUILDING TEAM Gotta is frankly in the midst of a rebuidling program -earlier this year he cut such former stalwarts as end Jay Roberts and defensive half Don Suterin-and the word is that other veterans are being closely watched. Between Injuries and retirements, Gotta has had a tough year, his first as a head coach. He didn't aim too high-just to make the playoffs would satisfy him, he said. "After that, who knows, we might get hot and win it all," he says. But only a tight EFC race has enabled the Riders to stay as close as they are to third place. With only five games left to play, the Rid.ers must start halping themselves or miss the playoffs for the first time since 1955. By THE CANADIAN PRESS Buffalo Sabres and Vancouver Canucks went to last June's National Hockey League draft in Montreal with stars in their eyes. The stars -were GObert Perreault of Montreal Junior Oana-diens and Dale Tallon of Toronto Marlboros, two highly-talented performers of the high-powered Ontario Hockey Association Junior A series. As new members of the NHL fraternity, one of the two dubs would liave first choice at the amateur draft table, the other would select sflcond. As it turned out, Buffalo's Punch Imlach won a toss of the coin and went for Perreault who paced the Junior Ctoadiens to last year's Canadian junior title. The Canucks Immediaitely nabbed Tallon whose prowess on the golf course was almost as sensational as his feats on ice. The 1969 Canadian junior golf champion was considering a golf car.eer even as the 1969-70 hockey season was ending. WAS IT But a repoi-ted $60,000 contract to sign with Vancouver lured his thoughts back to hockey dming the summer. It is believ�l to be the most ever ' paid a junior to tiim pro. Both Perreault and Tallon justified their ratings Thursday night in NHL exhibition play. Perreault scored two goals, including the tying marker with 25 seconds left in the game, to give Buffalo a 4-4 tie with Pittsburgh Penguins. Tallon also scored t\vice as the Canucks upset Chicago Black Hawks 4-2 in Vancouver. Buffalo appeared headed for its fifth loss in seven pre-season games until Perre.ult's laite-game heroics at Winnipeg, rapping home Craig Cameron's rebound over Penguin goalie Cam Nfiwton who had sprawled to make the initial saive. The Sabres bad a two-man ice advantage at the time after Imlach removed Buffalo goalie Roger Crozier whil'- Pittsburgh's Bryan Hextail was sitting out a minor penalty. Gerry Mechan and Reg Fleming also scored fm- the Sabres who now have tied three games. Ken Schrnkel, Lowell Mac-Donald. Bob Woytowich and John Stewart replied for the Penguins. TAKE LEAD 1 e Canucks jumped into a 2-0 first-p-Jiod lead oi goals by Tallon and Ted Taylor. Tallon's second goal, in the middle period, was a picture effort as he l-oke into the clear md beat Chicago goalie Tony Esposito on the short side. Rosaire Paiement scored the other Vancouver goal while Lairy Romanchuk and Bill White were the Chicago goal scorers. Dave Keon was to return to a Toronto Maple Leaf umform today after meeting with general manager Jim Gregory Thursday. Gregory said details of contract negotiations had been cleared and he expects a settlement will be completed by Saturday. Keon said it remained only for his accountants to clean xip matters before his return was official. Leafs, meanwhile, meet Montreal Canadiens in an exhibition game tonight at Halifax. In other scheduled games, St. Louis Blues visit Minnesota North Stars at Blcomington, Minn., and Oakland Seals take on Rochester American;; of tlie American League at Rochester. Keon will work out with Tulsa Oilers, T o r o n t o's Central League farmhands, today before rejodning the parent club. Meanwhile, injured Toronto defenceman Rick Lf.y has rejoined the Leafs as a left winger for tonight's game. He'll replace injured Paul Henderson an a line with Norm Ulbnan. Montreal is awaiting word from Claude Provost on his future .'rtatus with the club. The 15-year right wing veteran is to advise general manager Sam Pollock by Saturday if he will report as assistant player-coach of the AHL Montreal Voya-geurs. Provost, 37, met briefly with Pollock Thursday and aa*ed that he be given 48 hours to consider his future. He has already been waived through the NHL, a move that will enable him to move immediaitely to the Voyageurs post. Movers, M'aple Leah Here Open Saturday Kings Tlie ranks of the Lethbridge Sugar Kings reached 13 in number today with the signing of three more players for the coming year. Sugar idngs, who will again take part in the Alberta Junior Hockey League this season, to-day announced that Ken Chalmers, Jim Damberger and tiafts for Ih- 1970-71 season. Ed Lychak had signed con-Earlier Len Chalmers, Lan-ny McDonald, Archie McLennan, George McCrea, Uoyd P a w 1 u k, Fraser Robertson, Gary Paskuski, Ken Dodd, Dave Krook and Joe Mutch signed. In making the announcement manager Syd Hall indicated more players would be signed before S a t u r d a y's opener against Edmonton Movers. Kings open the 50-game schedule at homs Saturday at the Arena at 8:30. Sunday the Edmonton Maple Leafs will be here for a two o'clock encounter. Chalmei-s, a twin brother to forward L�n Chalmers, is starting his second season with the locals. Ken saw action on the blueline last year and is ex- Boston Signs Kapp MILTON, Mass. (AP'- Boston Patriots announced today they have acquired Joe Kapp, the star quarterback who led Minnesota Vikings to the National Football League championship last year. Kapp has stayed out of action so far this season because of a contract dispute. President Joe SuUivan of the Patriots made the announcement at the team's training headquarters at Curry College. Sullivan said the terms of the deal with the former British Columbia Lions player are still to be worked out. Kapp, who led California to the Rose Bo\vl in 1958, turned pro the next yiar and played in Canada vnth Calgary Stamped-ers and the Lions before joining the Vikings in 1967. His three-year NFL totals show 351 completions in 699 pass attempts for 4,811 yards and 37 touchdowns. Last year the sfac-foot-three, 215-pound signal caller was 120 for 237 for 1,726 yards and 19 touchdowns as he led the Vikings to the NFL title before they were beaten by Kansas rity Chiefs in the Super Bowl. peoted to do the same this time around. Chalmers, for his size, is deceptive and packs a good wallop when belting opposing forwards. Damberger showed a great deal of promise last year after joining the Kings mid way through the year. A defence-man, Damberger stands 6'1" and tips the scales at 180 pounds. Lychak is a newcomer. As a forward in High Prairie last year lie hit the 20-goal plateau and has the rqjutaUon of being a good scrapper. Lychak is S'lO" and weighs 160 pounds. Kings have a new coach in John Chapman and the newcomer has been champiag at toe bit for his first taste of league play. Chapman has led his charges through two exhibi-tiMi games without a decision. In both games the opposition battled back for a tie. Sugar Kings had Mount Royal College Cougars on the ropes but' let them get away. Kings were leading 6-2 at one stage but settled for an 8-8 stalemate. Chapman got hts biggest satisfaction in battling the Calgary Centennials to a 3-3 draw. Centennials and Kings have � working agreement for the coming year. Centennials have had thetr share of ties in recent exhibition games. Thursday evening before a disappointing gather-faig in Taber the Oentennials and Estevan Bruins played ta a 2-2 tie. Next Western Canada Hockey League exhibition action in Taber will' be Thanksgiving Day when the Medicine Hat Tiger^ meet Swift Current Bros* cos at three o'clock.
