CHICAGO - The Chicago Cou-
gars of the World HockeyAsso-
ciation yesterday lured veteran
center Ralph Backstrom away
from the Chicago Black Hawks
of the rival National Hockey
League for an estimated $750,000.
The 35-year-old Backstrom, a
16-season NHL player, was the
second Black Hawk standout
signed by the Cougars in two
weeks. On July, defenseman Pat
Stapleton was signed for an es-

Another Black Hawk, star cen-

Backstrom had a cereer NHL

with the Los Angeles Sharks, who
held the WHA's original negotia-
tion rights to Backstrom.
