MONTREAL WP) - Bobby Orr,_
Boston's sensational young de-
fenseman, equaled two National
Hockey League records yester-
day, winning the Hart Trophy as
Most Valuable Player for the
second time and capturing the
James Norris Trophy as top de-
fenseman for the fourth time.
Orr eyed the Stanley cup as he
accepted his awards at a lunch-

"If any of the Montreal or Chi-
cago players want to trade two
trophies for one, I'd be happy to
do that," said Orr.
The Bruins, record-shattering
champions of the NHL East Divi-
sion and defending Stanley Cup
champions, were eliminated in
the opening round of the play-
offs, and Montreal and Chicago
are now engaged in the finals for
the coveted Cup.
