Howie Meeker dies at age 97

Here are some interesting tidbits about the legendary Howie Meeker. He was such a cool guy!

Howie Meeker was known for being a hockey player, Stanley Cup winner, Coach & General Manager for the Toronto Maple Leafs, a broadcaster, author and educator for the game of hockey as well as a father and WW2 war veteran.

As an NHL player, Meeker won the Calder Trophy as the top rookie in 1947 — the same year Gordie Howe entered the league — and went on to play in three all-star games and hoist four Stanley Cups in eight seasons with the Maple Leafs.

While Meeker’s NHL playing career was over at 30 after 346 games — with 83 goals, 102 assists and 329 penalty minutes — he continued to play pro hockey on and off for another 15 years at a variety of levels including the American Hockey League and Newfoundland Senior League, among others.

Amazingly the winger spent two years as a Progressive Conservative member of Parliament while playing for the Leafs. In June 1951 he won a byelection in the riding of Waterloo South. He did not run in the August 1953 federal election. He retired from playing after the 1968-69 campaign and kept skating into his 80s.
Howie Meeker remained indelibly linked to hockey via the broadcast booth. He was honoured by the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1998 with the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award after a 30-year career on CBC and TSN. He also ran hockey schools for more than 30 years and literally wrote the book on hockey — 1973’s “Howie Meeker’s Hockey Basics.

In 2010, Meeker was appointed to the Order of Canada and was invested in a ceremony the following year. That same year he was inducted into the Ontario Sports Hall of Fame.

The Maple Leafs signed him to a free-agent contract on April 13, 1946. As a rookie, he scored 27 goals and registered 45 points in 55 games. Meeker had four goals and four assists in the ensuing playoffs as the Leafs defeated the Montreal Canadiens in the final. He also tied the league record for most goals in one game by a rookie when he scored five times in a 10-4 win over Chicago on Jan. 8, 1947. While playing with the Maple Leafs, the five-foot-nine 165-pound Meeker was a member of the “Tricky Trio” line with Ted Kennedy and Vic Lynn.

Meeker had six children with his first wife Grace — they were married for 55 years before she died of cancer. He remarried, living with wife Leah in Parksville on Vancouver Island where they were active in fundraising for the B.C. Guide Dog Services.
