Nickname: Shooter. Probablv one of the most important points to bs understood in shot-block--ing is thai not every player has the ability to do it. It's something that certain defensemen have a knack for doing. Other defensemen don't. It's not really something you can go out and practice like a slap shot. It's something you either do naturally, or you don't do it. Not too many defense-men would fall into the category of a sometimes shot-blocker. The most important aspect of shot-blocking is probably the timing. You have certain things to consider. The first point to remember is to time your fall so you don't go down to your knees too soon. Should you commit yourself and drop down to your knees too quickly, the oncoming forward can hold his shot, skate around you, and have clear sailing into the goaltender. Secondly, if you drop down to your knees too soon, the forward will be winding up his slap shot, and you will get hit in the face or in some other part of your body which is not protect-ed. I, myself, try to work along with the goaltender. He realizes that I will be blocking a lot of shots, so we try to design our play so I take a certain angle, and cut down on that, and he takes the angle I am not covering. Hopefully, I can cut down the amount of angle left to the oncoming forward. Another aspect of blocking shots which is very important is the recovery of your body. Some defensemen throw their bodies. If they block the shot, fine. If they don't,- they're left completely out of the play. My technique is to go straight down, dropping to both knees where I will hopefully catch most of the pucks in my pants, the top of the shin guards, or off tha'gioves. If I block ten shots in a game, four of them will probably hit me in places where I am not protected and, consequently, I acquire a lot of scrapes and bruises. My equipment, then, is a very important part of my shot-blocking. I wear reinforced shin guards, have added protection in my gloves, and wear shoulder. pads with a little chest protector in the front. Blocking shots is an occupational, hazard, and it's beneficial to the defenseman who block a lot of shots to wear this extra protection. Of course, there's another side to it, and, by, adding the extra protection, you're adding a little extra weight. Hockey fans, past, present and future, can learn more about the intricacies of the popular major league spectator sport soon coming to Hartford from this exclusive series, featuring players of the New England Whalers, who describe their specialties in interviews with Courant Sports Writer Tom Hine. Today, i the fourth installment, Paul Hurley discusses blocking shots. Jfii a sits . s2w7J But, I am a defensive defenseman, and I think I have to wear the added protection because I'm not the offensive type. . There are certain times when you block shots and the puck will bounce away from you and onto someone else's stick. It's very important, then, for the defenseman . who is a shot-blocker to work on recovering extremely quickly so he can get up from his knee position and try to retreive the puck. I will try whenever I can to smother the puck as near as possible to my body without creating a delay of game penalty." ... I think it's important to note that shot-blocking helps the goaltender immensely. A lot of times, there will be a quick pass and the goaltender will be out of position because he's moving with the puck. The defenseman will then drop down because he will have to cover a certain amount of the net that the goaltender may not be able to defend. There is, then, certainly a big place in hockey for shot-blocking. Next: Tim Sheehy discusses finesse and speed in skating. S0LUHAR TABLES WHCN TO RSH OR HUNT 1 TVl KcKanJ AMea Knight J n.

Jacobi has arrived in this country to assist American scientists in tracking the migration of lesser snow geese from the Soviet Union to the U.S. West coast. The geese being tracked have been dyed pink as part of the joint experiment. According to the Fish and Wildlife Service of the U.S. Department of the Interior, the project is the first cooperative field project of its kind to be carried out under the U.S. U.S.S.R. Environ mental Agreement ot 1972. Dr. William J.L. Sladen of Use Eastern Standard Johns Hopkins University is time. serving as the U.S. coordi nator for the project. During his stay in this it various National Wildlife Refuges along the Pacific Fly way. Soviets Concerned According to the Fish and Wildlife Service the Soviets have expressed concern over declining lesser snow geese populations in their country since the species breeds only at one location on Wrangel Island in the Soviet Arctic northwest of the Bering Strait. Lesser snow geese, meanwhile, are plentiful on the North American continent, the wildlife service said. A.M. P.M.

The wildlife service also noted the Soviet migratory bird experts are interested in studying the North American bird banding system developed and operated jointly with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Canadian Wildlife Service which have been working in close cooperation. The bird banding records are centrally stored at the Bird Banding Laboratory located at the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center in Laurel, Maryland. The data is computer processed and made available to both U.S. and Canadian scientists. The development of a similar method is being investigated by the Soviet scientists. The Rhode Island Department of Economic Development Tourist Promotion, Division has announced the publication of a new brochure summarizing winter " recreational activities avail-' able in that state. The guide, titled "Winter in Rhode Island", gives extensive information about ski areas in Cumberland, Escoheag and Exeter, including basic rates, hours and other information: In addition, the guide includes lists of indoor and outdoor skating areas, and the location of frostbite sailing fleets, snowmobile trails, indoor tennis, and other winter recreation activities.
