Leader Levies $625 In Fines

SEATTLE, Wash.— Seven Western League coaches and players have been hit with $625 in fines, which go to the league pension fund. Hardest hit was Oakland manager-coach Rudy Pilous, fined $300 by President Al Leader for verbal and physical abuse directed at goal judge Bill Nehan when the Seals were not credited with a goal Pilous thought they had scored in a game in Vancouver.

Ex-NHL Star Harvey Sought By Providence

PROVIDENCE, R.I.— One of hockey’s greatest all time defensemen—Doug Harvey—has probably reached the crossroads of his career. For the 11-time NHL all-star, the next week could decide whether or not he’ll continue playing at 42 years of age or hang up his skates. The Providence Reds of the American Hockey League, who are mired in last place, allegedly purchased Harvey’s contract from Baltimore Clippers but Harvey refused to report to the Reds. Now the AHL tai enders are making a pitch to get Harvey to change his mind. Club general-manager Buster Clegg negotiated with Harvey. Clegg said the Reds made the one-time Montreal Canadiens’ defense star a flattering offer and they hope he accepts and joins the team. Clegg said it was his understanding that Baltimore Cuppers, with whom Harvey played 24 games this year, released…

Injury-Ravaged Apollos Battle For Lead

HOUSTON, Tex— The Houston Apollos, fighting to overcome injuries surged back into contention with a pair of clearcut decisions over Omaha and St. Louis in Christmas week. The addition of leftwinger Leo Thiffault and defenseman Bob Barber from Cleveland of the American League paid dividends early with Thiffault clicking for a pair of goals in his first game. Both players were with the Apollos last season. Barber took over a rearguard spot with Carol Vadnais sidelined with a broken arm and Mike McMahon sidelined with a multiple nose fracture. Danny Grant was finding it tough coming back from a knee injury after scoring five goals and picking up five assists in his first 10 games in the pro ranks. Goalie Jerry Desjardins was in hospital with a damaged knee that required an operation and Rog…

Chadwick, Edwards Not Returning To Herd

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Eddie Chadwick and Roy Edwards are giving the Bisons the best goaltending in the American Hockey League for the second straight season, but neither figures to be with the club next winter. Chadwick is owned by the Bisons and Edwards is owned by the Chicago Black Hawks. Barring injuries across the rest of this season, both will undoubtedly get a crack in the National Hockey League’s expansion division next fall. The working agreement between the Bisons and the Black Hawks is in its final stages, which means Edwards won’t be back “under any circumstances. At 33, Chadwick has played with Toronto and Boston in the NHL, and with Pittsburgh, Winnipeg, Rochester, Kingston, Ont., and Hershey in the minors, before coming here. Edwards, 26, has bounced around the minors with stops at Calgary,…
