Brian Conacher (Toronto, ON) has been in and around the sport of hockey for over 55 years. Born into the first family of hockey, he continued the family tradition in the sport, playing at all levels of the game, from school to the professional leagues. He was on Canada’s Olympic and National teams, and ultimately was part of the last Toronto Maple Leaf team to win the Stanley Cup, the Leafs of 1967. After his playing days were over he was appointed general manager with WHA Indianapolis Racers and then later the Edmonton Oilers. He has been President of the NHL Alumni Association, and was the colour commentator during the ’72 Summit Series, alongside Foster Hewitt’s play-by-play.
