Today’s guest on The Heart Of The Rink Hockey had a very successful hockey career with the opportunity to win three cups in his home town of Winnipeg, Manitoba when he played goal for the Winnipeg Jets.
It was back in the days of the old World Hockey Association, which was in existence from 1972 until 1979. Many NHL player’s made the move from the NHL to the upstart WHA. The Jets won the final WHA championship in 1979 against Wayne Gretzky and the Edmonton Oilers. He was also one of the last goaltenders to wear a mask.
Since his playing days Joe has been actively involved in the sports memorabilia business in Winnipeg.
