Episode 107: The Life of Charlie Gardiner (Part I) - Winnipeg The History of Hockey Podcast

    • Hockey

Today we begin a new series on goaltender Charlie Gardiner. We talked about Charlie about forty-or-so episodes ago, but this time we are going far deeper than just his death. This episode covers his early life from Scotland to Winnipeg to Chicago. He grows up playing a myriad of sports, including baseball, rugby, and hockey. We see him turn pro with the Winnipeg Maroons hockey team, which forces him to forfeit his amateur status in all other sports. He meets Myrtle Brooks, the love interest (gotta have one of those, right?) and then, rather suddenly, finds himself on his way out of Winnipeg.
