"He can skale. He can shoot. And I've never seen a young player who feathers a pass so well." In the bodycheck department, Lafleur shouid get his first tasle of the NHL variety tonight when the Canadiens play host to Bos- ton Bruins in an exhibition game. Lafleur, who scored 130 goals last season as a right winger with Quebec Remparts of the u e h e c Junior A Hockey League, has been moved to centre between Frank Mahov- lich at left wing and Yvan Cour- noyer. Both wingmen have been impressed with the tall youngs- ter. "Guy shouldn't have any trou- ble fitting in at centre the way he finds his wingers and can lay down a pass both Bow- man said. The Lafleur-Mahovlich-Cour- noyer combination has jelled 'like bread, butter and jam." Cournoyer, who thrived for years on the slick playmakmg of now-retired Jean Beliveau, is already high on Lafieur.

Lafleur, a modest young man who uses a straight blade on his stick at the Montreal camp, says he is getting a break in playing alongside the two expe- rienced wingers.

"I am not the old Wor- sley said at Minnesota North Stars' training camp here this week. "Maybe in seniority, but Jacques Plante is a month older than I am." Age doesn't appear to be ov- ertaking Worsley or Plante, of Toronto Maple Leafs, as they prepare to resume their roles as two of the best goaltenders in the NHL. Worsley, entering his ISHi season in the league find 22nd year in professional hockey, says he is in better shape going into camp this year than In some of the past seasons. "I'm finding it he says. "I'm down to 180 pounds now "They play position and they always seem to be in the he said. "I think we go well together." Bowman, who intends to keep the trio together for the first four or five exhibition games and perhaps longer, couldn't fig- ure out at first how a player who made so many passes and checked so well in the training camp here could have scored 130 goals last season. But that was before the rookie started shooting the puck on the net and came up with three goals in a recent practice. BEAT NERVOUSNESS Senators >vill move NEW YORK (AP) The owner of Washington Senators has been promised enough votes by American League owners to move the baseball club to the Dallas-Fort Worth area, The As- sociated Press learned Friday. Bob Short, owner of the Sena- tors, will poll lhc owners at a meeting in Boston Tuesday. The only thing that apparently stands between Short and a move lo DsMas.Fort Worth Is the possibility that one of the eight other owners will change his mind before the meeting. Short needs nine votes from among Hie 12 American League club owners to be able to move the club. Short purchased the Senators in December, 1968, and immedi- ately reached out to spur at- tendance by hiring Ted Wil- liams as his manager. He later signed two of baseball's prob- lem players, pitcher Denny McLain and ortfielder Curt Flood. Ciliiii'iiliiilll!
