Tonight we are commemorating the 70th anniversary of one of the most famous goals in Stanley Cup finals history. On April 21, 1951 Bill Barilko of the Toronto Maple Leafs scored the Cup-winning goal in game five of the Stanley Cup playoffs against the Montreal Canadiens.
Months after he scored that goal Barilko disappeared under mysterious circumstances and his remains would not be found until 11 years later in 1962.
Tonight’s guest is a legend in hockey literature Kevin Shea. Kevin lives in the greater Toronto area and has written 19 critically acclaimed volumes on hockey history, many of which have earned awards. When he is not writing Kevin also serves as the Editorial and Education Facilitator at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto while also teaching hockey history courses at Seneca College. He has also been a tireless fund raiser for cancer research.
In 2005 Kevin wrote a biography of Bill Barilko titled “Barilko: Without A Trace”.
