HOWIE MEEKER - HOCKEY'S RENAISSANCE MAN
Submitted By EHL on Sunday, November 15, 2020
Earlier this week we learned the sad news of hockey legend Howie Meeker’s passing at the age of 97. Meeker, a native of New Hamburg, was named Rookie of the Year in 1947 and won four Stanley Cups with the Toronto Maple Leafs before becoming an icon with Hockey Night in Canada. His other accolades include the Order of Canada and induction into the Ontario Sports Hall of Fame.

Throughout the 1970s, Howie Meeker Hockey School sessions were regularly shown on CBC. The series offered development tips on skating, shooting and practice planning. Many of Meeker’s philosophies were ahead of his era as he utilized technology and teaching tools that were leading edge at that time. This also translated to his broadcasts on HNIC, as Meeker would often utilize video for game and skill analysis.

Here are some of Meeker's tips that have ended up being timeless.
