Buckaroos Hand Fashoway Task Of Filling Lay toe’s Big Shoes

PORTLAND. Ore.— Gordon Fashoway, the all-time goal-scoring champion of the Western Hockey League, will tackle one of the toughest challenges in professional hockey history this fall. Fashoway will become coach of the Portland Buckaroos, ending the nine-year reign of Hal Laycoe, who moved south to take over the Los Angeles Kings of the National League. A tough act to follow? You don’t have to get cute to explain. Just stick to the facts. In nine seasons as Buckaroo skipper, Laycoe won seven regular-season championships. He finished second twice. He was in the playoff finals five times and twice won the Lester Patrick Cup. In fact, under Laycoe from 1960-61 through 1968-69, the Portland Buckaroos won more hockey games than any other professional team in the world. Fashoway, the first and only choice of Portland President Harry…

Dupont, 20 years-old, was the Rangers first round selection in the National Hockey League’s amateur draft held here in June. Dupont, 6-1 and 200 pounds, starred for the Memorial Cup-winning Montreal Junior Canadiens last season, chalking up 212 penalty minutes in 53 games. “Off his outstanding record as an amateur, we’ll be giving Dupont a long, hard look in training camp,” says Francis. “We rated him as one of the top juniors in Canada last season. He’s got the size and likes to throw his weight around.” The Rangers acquired Dupont, a rugged defenseman, and Pierre Jarry, a high-scoring forward, as their first two selections in the amateur draft.
