The Man Who Caught Lightning In A Bottle
Bill Mosienko was one of Manitoba's greatest hockey players and athletes. This is his story. Mosienko became a hockey legend in 1952 when he recorded the fastest hat-trick in NHL history -a record that stands to this day. This biography tells the story of a Manitoba legend, from his childhood spent skating on the rinks of Winnipeg's North End in the 1920s and 30s to his illustrious fourteen-year NHL career to his return to Winnipeg to play with the Winnipeg Warriors to his post-retirement career as the owner of the iconic Mosienko Bowling Lanes. Through exclusive interviews with Mosienko's friends, family, and teammates, Dillello paints a vivid picture of Mosienko, a man known for his sportsmanship and community spirit as well as well as his incredible hockey talent.
