Murray Williamson Hockey Journey EP82

My next guest is truly a hockey pioneer, but he'd prefer to remain in the background, giving praise and credit to others around him. In 1959, Murray Williamson became an All-American in hockey at the University of Minnesota. Won silver as the head coach of the men's US Olympic hockey team in 1972 Sapporo, Japan. Was the coach and GM of the first US National Jr. team that participated in the inaugural World Junior Tournament held in Leningrad, Russia in 1973. In 2001, he was named one of the fifty most significant players and coaches in Minnesota hockey history. This only scratches the surface of all that Mr. Williamson not only accomplished, but has contributed to the game of hockey. For his full story, because we won't cover his full journey in this episode, I encourage you to pick-up a copy of his recent book, The Road To Respectability - Murray Williamson's Role In US Hockey. I've included the link where you can pick up your copy after you listen to the interview, I couldn't put the book down once I started reading it. Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the interview and have a wonderful day!!
