Rick Ley was fired as coach of the Hartford Whalers because of what were described as philosophical differences with team owner Richard Gordon. Ley's firing came six weeks after the Whalers were eliminated by the Boston Bruins in six games in the NHL playoffs--the fifth consecutive season they have lost in the first round. Hartford posted a 69-71-20 record in two seasons under Ley--the best winning percentage of the Whalers' six coaches since the team joined the NHL from the World Hockey Assn.

Vancouver Canuck scoring star Pavel Bure has a torn ligament in his right knee and will be lost for the rest of the season. "Obviously devastating news to the organization," Vancouver Coach Rick Ley told radio station CKNW on Saturday. "It's the type of injury you'd like to see no athlete sustain. "It can be a career-threatening injury. But in Pavel's case, with his youth and being one of the top conditioned athletes probably in the world . . . we're expecting a complete recovery."
