D6 The Edmonton Journal, Wednesday, November 26, 1997 Sports Digest IN THE BLEACHERS By Steve Moore s i S "You gotta play with the cards life dealt you, Vinnie. Know what I'm saying? So just kick the stinkin' ball and forget about the headers." Ex-Ice coach gets new job In less than a month, Dave Siciliano has been fired by the hapless Edmonton Ice and hired by the resurgent Owen Sound Platers. The Ontario Hockey League team introduced the 51-year-old from Thunder Bay, Ont., as its new coach on Tuesday Siciliano was hired for the remainder of the season. He replaces John Siciliano Siciliano's record in the Western Hockey League. "We've done some research on that situation and it was a case where it was an expansion club that didn't have much talent and it lost 31 games by one goal or in overtime last season," said McKelvie. Siciliano served as an assistant coach to Perry Pearn on Canada's gold-medal-winning junior team in 1993 and was head coach of Canada's under-18 team, which won a silver medal that year. He coached the Thunder Bay Junior A Flyers to a Centennial Cup in 1989 and 1992. Siciliano was named coach of the year three times in the United States Junior Hockey League and coached the Flyers to US JHL titles four times. Als to play at Molson Stadium The Montreal Alouettes kicked off what they hope will be a franchise-saving season-ticket campaign Tuesday by confirming they will play outdoors at Molson Stadium next year. Team president Larry Smith said the Alouettes will maintain their locker room and practice facili ties at the But should the ticket and sponsorship campaign flop, Smith said there was no guarantee the team could continue to operate in Montreal. "If we don't reach our goals, well, we'll talk about that," Smith said. "By March, we'll have a good idea of whether sales are going good or not," he added. "This year, we're starting earlier and we have a lot more support in the community now." The Alouettes signed only a one-year agreement with McGill in order to see if a change of venue succeeds in drawing a reluctant public back to CFL football. The Als were encouraged by the crowd of more than 16,000 that turned out for an Eastern semifinal playoff game on Nov. 2 at Molson Stadium nearly double their average gate during the season at the 45,000-seat Olympic Stadium. Injured hockey player dies A Saskatchewan hockey player who fell into a coma after a freak accident during a game died Tuesday after being taken off life support a couple of days earlier. v. H Christie brain. Doctors had said it was highly likely he suffered severe brain damage. Wayne Kartusch, president of the SJHL, said the league was very saddened to hear of Christie's death. "It's certainly a tragic accident," said Kartusch. "We were hoping for that miracle." Kartusch said all players in the league will wear a patch on their helmets with Christie's number on it. He also said it was the first time in the league's history that a player died from on-ice injuries. Christie's teammates had announced earlier Tuesday they had set up a trust fund for him in cooperation with the Bank of Montreal. And ...

Lovell, who was fired Nov. 3 when the Platers were 6-10-1. "I wanted to get back in and coach as soon as I could this year," said Siciliano, who was fired by the Ice on Oct. 24 after starting this season 0-9-1. "Being with a club that has some potential to make the playoffs is exciting." Ray McKelvie, the Platers' director of hockey operations, said the club isn't worried about domed Olympic Sta dium but play their games at Molson Stadium on the McGill University campus downtown. The CFL clubs needs to sell at least 10,000 season tickets and raise $1.5 million from corporate sponsors to meet its budget objectives. Graham Christie, 20, was disconnected from life support Sunday night.
