Bill Barilko (1927 – 1951) left this world too soon at age 24.
Bill was a hockey player. He played for the Toronto Maple Leafs from 1946 to 1951. He was a member of Stanley Cup winnings teams every one of those years. He scored the winning goal, in overtime, that helped Toronto to defeat the Montreal Canadiens 4 games to 1.
He died in a plane crash almost immediately after this game!
I highly suggest visiting CBC Archives for an in-depth article (and video) about this!
