Rangers trade H
for Penguin Be

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK The New York
Rangers, disappointed by an-
other playoff failure, began the
reshaping of t h e i r National
League club yesterday by trad-
ing veteran left winger Vic Had-
field to the Pittsburgh Penguins
for defenssemnan Nick Beverley,
whose salary is considerably
less than the $200,000 Hadfield
was reported to be earning.
HADFIELD, captain of the
Rangers, had signed a five-year
contract with New York in 1972
after becoming the first player
in Ranger history to score 50
goats in a single season. That
year, Htsdfseld had enjoyed his
most productive NHL season
with 106 points, fourth best total
is the league.
The p a c t was reportedly
worth $1 million and was Me of
several given to New York
players by General Manager
Emsile Francis to prevent pos-
sible jumps to the new World
Hockey Association. At the time,
it was suggested that the Ran-
gers were trying to "buy" the

other NHLE teams were losing
players to the new league.
The ploy failed, Francis' club
finished second in the Eastern
Division each of the last two
seasons and was eliminated in
the playoff semifinals each
year. Hadfield, hampered by a
series of injuries, mostly to his
hands, saw his production dwin-
dle to 62 points in 1972-73 and
55 points last season.

reer goals'and 573 points. Only
Rod Gilbert and Jean Ratelle,
his longtime linemates on one
of the NHL's most productive
lines are ahead of Hadfield on
the all-time Ranger scoring list.
Francis explained the trade in
terms of readying the Ranger
roster for next month's intra-
league and expansion drafts.
"We have players in the minors
who we must protect," he said.
"We're going to lose four play-
ers in the drafts but you don't
want to lose a player and get
nothing in return."
That would indicate that Fran-
cis did not plan to protect Had-
field in those drafts. So, instead
of cash, he came up with Bev-
erley, a y o u n g defenseman
acquired by the Penguins from
Boston midway through last sea-
son. "He adds size and depth to
our defense," said Francis.
