Johnny Bower, Dead at 93

Johnny BowerJohnny Bower was 93. Nicknamed "The China Wall", the Hall of Famer won four Stanley Cups tending goal for the Toronto Maple Leafs. In retirement, no Leafs alumnus was more active than Johnny Bower.

Often at this time of year I'd share Johnny Bower's "Honky the Christmas Goose". Sung with Little John and the Rinky Dinks, it was released in 1965 and enjoyed a significant amount of airplay, making it to number 29 on our Canadian music charts.
