William J. Lombardy, who was one of the most talented and promising chess players of his generation, winning titles and accolades while he was still a teenager, but who all but gave up the game at the height of his career to become a priest, died on Friday in Martinez, Calif.

The second introduction to the big leagues came in the second period, when Philadelphia’s Jakub Voracek deked around Bowey, who lost his stick as Voracek set up a goal by Wayne Simmonds.
