Battered Salt Lake Eagles Rebound With New Faces To Fly In WHL Race

SALT LAKE CITY— If ever a Western Hockey League team appeared to be out of it early, it was the Salt Lake City Golden Eagles in the first couple of weeks of the current season. The Eagles, under new Coach Gus Bodnar, played six games and they lost six games. In those six clashes, they scored only 11 goals—an average of less than two a contest—while opponents were pouring in 25 against them. And what could have proved the real crusher came in the sixth game of that season-opening string. With their largest crowd of the season—more than 9,000 screaming fans—on hand, the Eagles led the Portland Buckaroos, 5-4, with less than four minutes to play. Would you believe that Portland tied the score and then won it in the final 30 seconds on a goal…

Stemmer Big Catch For ‘Cat’

NEW YORK— In a deal made from strength, the defense rich New York Rangers, trader 23-year-old Larry Brown to the Detroit Red Wings for 27-year-old Peter Stemkowski. Brown, a positional type of defenseman, will get a regular turn on the Wing blue line, whereas Stemkowski, who plays both center and left wing, gives New York added depth, scoring and muscle. “Any time you can add a player of Stemkowski’s ability without hurting yourself, you have to make the trade,” said Emile Francis, the Rangers Govemal manager. Stemkowski scored 25 goals and added 24 assists for 49 points with the Wings last season, after hitting for 21 goals and 31 assists in 1968-69. He hits and at 6 foot even and 200 pounds, adds some very much needed muscle to the Rangers. Whether Peter, a former…

Sabres Got Blues’ Duo Using Baun

BUFFALO— The Buffalo Sabres wasted little time turning defensive acquisition Bob Baun into a lucrative trade that brought them two needed veterans—Jean-Guy Talbot and Larry Keenan. Manager-coach Punch Imlach put in a bid for his old Toronto defense stalwart when the Detroit Red Wings asked waivers on Baun. Imlach possibly beat the Leafs to the punch by claiming Baun. Many believed Baun was destined for the Sabres but Imlach had other ideas. He cooked up a trade with St. Louis Blues who parted with Talbot, a defenseman, and Keenan, an injury-prone left winger, in exchange for Baun. Imlach saw a chance to get two bodies instead of one and went for the proposition. Talbot, who can do double duty as a defender and a penalty killer, will likely see plenty of action with the…
