110 Bill Barilko

View descriptionShare

In 1951, Toronto Maple Leaf player, 24-year-old Bill Barilko scored the game-winning goal in overtime during the last game of the Stanley Cup Finals. He flung himself across the ice, tucking a quick backhand over the shoulder of the Montreal goalie, giving the Leafs their fourth Stanley Cup win in five years. 

A few months later, Barilko disappeared, taking the Leafs winning streak with him. The Leafs would not win another cup until 1962, within weeks of Barilko’s return home. 

His story is immortalized in the song, 50 Mission Cap, by The Tragically Hip.
