An overture for a National Hockey League expansion franchise, supposedly made on behalf of the Soviet Ice Hockey Federation, has been rejected. Ramon Dacyshyn, executive vice president of Intercan Sports Inc., the agency that negotiated the release of Soviet player Sergei Priakin to the Calgary Flames last month, made the proposal to league president John Ziegler and NHL Players Assn. executive director Alan Eagleson last month. Under the plan, which Dacyshyn said was made on behalf of the Soviets, a team exclusively with Soviet players would compete in the NHL.

Sergei Priakin made history Friday night at Calgary when he became the first Soviet to play in a National Hockey League game. Priakin, a 25-year-old right wing, failed to get a point in the Flames' 4-1 victory over Winnipeg, but was on the ice for one of the Flames' goals. A crowd of 20,002 watched when Priakin jumped onto the ice 2:29 of the first period. In the first 20 minutes he had five shifts and stirred up action on each one of them.

Alexander Mogilny of the Soviet national hockey team defected Thursday in Stockholm, where the Soviets had won the World Championships, apparently to play in the National Hockey League. Mogilny, 20, a forward, is the first Soviet player to defect. Sergei Priakin, a former national team member, signed with the Calgary Flames in March after the NHL and the Soviet Hockey Federation had reached agreement allowing him to go to Canada. Spokesmen for the NHL and Buffalo Sabres, who hold Mogilny's rights, said they knew nothing of the defection.

Not one of the NHL's Soviet players made it to the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Also, none of those who participated in the opening playoff series did much to help his team's cause. The five who took part--Sergei Makarov and Sergei Priakin of Calgary, Alexei Kasatonov and Viacheslav Fetisov of New Jersey and Alexander Mogilny of Buffalo--combined for no goals, 12 assists and a minus-six rating in 24 playoff games.
