NHL ALUMS TO DIVIDE UP $1M IN RESTITUTION FROM THE EAGLE

          About 1,400 Alan Eagleson-era NHL players will divide
     up a $1M fund taken from the former NHLPA founder, according
     to Brad Honywill of the TORONTO SUN.  A trustee overseeing
     the distribution of $1M that Eagleson had to pay in
     restitution after a plea-bargaining agreement in a fraud
     case has announced that all players who were members of the
     NHLPA from '76-91 are "entitled to share equally in the
     recovered money."  Split among 1,400 eligible players, the
     restitution "shrinks" to about $700 each (TORONTO SUN,
     7/17).  The maximum a player could receive is $1,400 and the
     minimum is $100 (Randy Starkman, TORONTO STAR, 7/17).
