Abstract (Document Summary)

Just being part of the Maple Leafs' training camp is a big deal for Trevor Jobe, a 6-foot-1, 197-pound left winger who potted 69 goals for the Prince Albert Raiders last year.

General manager Gord Stellick didn't rule out the possibility of Jobe being one of five or six new faces who probably will be in this year's edition of the club.

Notes: [Wendel Clark], who is taking no chances with back problems that plagued him last season, participated in a light scrimmage for the first time yesterday. It's still not known if he'll be ready to open the season . . . Craig Laughlin, the former Washington Capital and Los Angeles King who was signed as a free agent, will be sidelined for a few days with a slight charley horse. The mishap occurred during Wednesday's practice . . . Team owner Harold Ballard is not impressed with the length of hair of a couple of his players. "Maybe I'm jealous," he mused during yesterday's practice. Still recovering from heart surgery this summer, the 85-year-old wonder said he was thinking about making the trip west for the club's first two exhibition games . . . Leaf fans will get their first look at this year's club on Wednesday when the Gretzkyless Edmonton Oilers pay a visit.
