Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 7, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE IETHBRIDGE HSRAID Wtdneiday, October 7, 1970 Ferguson Announces 's Quitting Hockey MONTREAL (CP) John Ferguson, Montreal Canadiens' left winger, said today he has decided to retire from hockey. Ferguson, a regular with the National Hockey League club since the 1963-64 season, said his decision was not a sudden one. "I thought about it for most of the Ferguson said. "I have no beef with hockey or the Canadiens, general manager Sam Pollock or the owners, but I know here I'm going." Ferguson, 33, currently is a partner in a prosperous sweater manufacturing firm here. Pollock, in New York for to- day's meeting of the NHL's board of govenors, said in a telephone interview he was aware of Ferguson's decision and will meet with the Vancou- ver native Thursday. Ferguson said it is not likely he will change his mind.

The letter said 13-year-old Derek, who has muscular dys- trophy, received an envelope six months later suggesting he purchase a Bobby Orr full-color photograph and a Bobby Orr summer hockey camp entry form. The letter said there wasn't even an acknowledgement of Derek's letter.

Orr was in town for an exhi- bition game with Montreal Canadiens. cent to hockey, it's time to give Ferguson, a fierce compet- itor, said. His decision was prompted by a desire to devote more time to his business interests here and to his wife and young family. Ferguson has four children, three daughters and one son, ranging in age from 1 to 12. Ferguson's career has been plagued with injuries and sus- pensions over the last few sea- sons. He had a cast removed from his right arm Tuesday. The cast was placed there one week ago because of bursitis. Ferguson, whose on-ice rough- ness contrasts sharply with his mild-mannered approach to life off the ice, had a frustrating 1969-70 season. He appeared in only 48 games for the Cana- diens, scored 19 goals and as- sisted on 13 others. He suffered an injured thumb in last season's exhibition tour and got off to a slow start. He also served a six-game suspen- sion for a stick-swinging inci- dent in St. Louis with Gary Sa- bourin of the Blues. The previous season was Fer- guson's best as he scored 29 goals and assisted on 23 others in 71 regular-season games and added four goals and three as- sists in 14 playoff games to help the Canadiens to the Stanley Cup.
