BODNAR, Gus
Peacefully, on Friday, July 1, 2005, at Lakeridge Health, Oshawa, with his family at his side, Gus BODNAR, beloved husband of Etta, and loving father of Bonnie and husband Paul, Greg and wife Jayne, Carolyn and husband Peter, Andrea and husband John, and Cheryl and husband Brian.
Affectionately known at "Grandpa Gus" to Melissa, Meaghan, Jay, Calli, Teagan, Ryan, Eric, Alexandra and Lara. Predeceased by his parents Peter and Sophie BODNARCHUK, his brothers Ed, Oryst, Nestor and sister Stella.
Born in Fort William, Ontario in 1923. With an National Hockey League career that lasted nearly 700 games playing for Toronto, Chicago and Boston and a winning coaching career that followed, Gus distinguished himself as an ambassador of hockey. He played for the Toronto Maple Leafs from 1943 to 1948, winning the Calder Trophy as Rookie of the Year. He was also a proud member of the 1945 and 1947 Stanley Cup winning Toronto Maple Leafs. To this day, he has National Hockey League records that remain unchallenged since he retired from playing professional hockey in 1955. For the next twenty years, Gus coached at the Junior C, Junior B and Junior A levels and in the Western Professional League. He coached the Memorial Cup Champion Toronto Marlboros in 1967-68, moving to coach and manager of the Oshawa Generals until 1976. In 1971-72, he was awarded the Matt Leyden Trophy as Coach of the Year. He also coached the Bronze Medal winning Canada Junior team in 1977-78. In 1983 he was inducted to the North Western Sports Hall of Fame and in 1995, the Oshawa Sports Hall of Fame.
Gus' passion off the ice was golf. A scratch golfer, he played in many Canadian celebrity tournaments benefiting a wide range of charities. In winter he enjoyed golfing with his wife and their many Friends at their winter home in Lake Placid, Florida. Playing into his 80's, with a score close to his age, Gus often out shot his sons-in-law with his unconventional but effective slap-shot type drive.
Throughout his 82 years, Gus, in a variety of roles, touched thousands of people's lives and has left us all with a fine example of a life well lived. He will be very much missed as a loving husband, father and grandpa - and as a teammate and coach.
In accordance with Gus' wishes a private family gathering was held. Best wishes can be sent to the family via the Gus Bodnar website at www.gusbodnar.com. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to your local minor hockey team of choice.

Gus BODNAR, Athlete, Coach And Salesman 1923-2005
In 1943, the handsome and 'dimpled darling' of the Maple Leafs was the quickest, slickest thing on skates when he set an National Hockey League record for the fastest goal scored by a rookie
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, July 9, 2005, Page S9
Vancouver -- On October 30, 1943, Ontario Premier George DREW stepped to centre ice at Maple Leaf Gardens to drop the puck for a ceremonial face-off. The Toronto Maple Leafs had several rookies in the lineup to start the season, as wartime enlistments thinned the ranks. Among those skating into the breach was a handsome 20-year-old centre-man named Gus BODNAR.
Fifteen seconds from the start of the game, Mr. BODNAR pounced on a loose puck in front of the New York Rangers net. He slipped the disk into the net past goalie Ken McAuley. Just like that, the young forward had etched his name in the National Hockey League record book. Nearly 62 years later, the goal still stands as the quickest scored by a player making his debut.
Mr. BODNAR added another goal and an assist in leading the Leafs to a 5-2 win in the season opener, a performance that made him an instant fan favourite in Toronto.
Mr. BODNAR was a wiry centre with a reputation as a savvy playmaker. As a 5-foot-11, 150-pound rookie, he seemed a tad fragile to survive professional hockey's take-no-prisoners combat. Indeed, he would suffer a lengthy list of wounds and ailments in his career. He exited many games on his back courtesy of stretcher bearers and more than once did so while unconscious. Yet, he always seemed to be back on the ice within a week or two.
Sportswriters praised the skills of the "dynamic midget" who was described as a "resourceful young puckster" and "one of the slickest skaters ever."
The "dimpled darling" of "cherubic countenance" received poetry and mash notes from female admirers in those years when so many men were serving overseas. Mr. BODNAR, who had been rejected for army service for heart palpitations, was said to inflict that condition on his bobby-soxer fans. One piece of doggerel that made the newspapers read: "We want Gussy, good or bad/ He's the cutest number you've ever had."
What his erstwhile suitors did not know was that he was carrying a torch for a high-school sweetheart back home in Fort William (now Thunder Bay).
August BODNARCHUK starred with the junior team in his Ontario hometown, his obvious skills catching the attention of Leafs scout Squib WALKER. In his final season of junior hockey, the centre scored 10 goals and 29 assists in just nine games with the Fort William Hurricane-Rangers in 1942-43.
The brash youngster arrived at his first Leafs training camp convinced he would soon be an National Hockey League star.
"I thought I was pretty big stuff," he later told Frank ORR of the Toronto Star. "I had my hair long and all slickered down with goo. I figured I was about the hottest rookie ever to hit the pros, even though I weighed only 145 pounds."
The rookie got a quick and unforgettable lesson in the realities of the National Hockey League when veteran, 205-pound defenceman Bucko McDonald hit him with a stiff bodycheck during a scrimmage.
"I crashed to the ice and figured every bone in my body was broken. The only reason my hair was still attached to my head was because of all the goo I had on it."
He learned to skate with his head up, alert to incoming threats.
The three-point debut was a harbinger of a stellar rookie campaign spent on the Leafs first line between veterans Bob Davidson and Lorne Carr. Mr. BODNAR's talents earned him the Calder Trophy as the National Hockey League's outstanding rookie. Montreal Canadiens goalie Bill Durnan was runner-up, while Leafs rookies Elwin Morris and Teeder Kennedy tied for third. The trophy was announced on the final day of the season. Mr. BODNAR then scored two goals and three assists in a 10-2 shelling of the Boston Bruins.
Mr. BODNAR ended his first season with 20 goals and 42 assists to set a new league mark for scoring by a rookie. The record would stand for a quarter century until beaten by Danny Grant of the Minnesota North Stars in 1968-69. Mr. BODNAR's 62-point season was the Leafs club standard for rookies until bettered by Peter Ihnacak in 1982-83.
While Mr. BODNAR scored just eight goals in his sophomore season, his three playoff goals were all game winners. The Leafs outlasted the Detroit Red Wings in seven games to claim the Stanley Cup in 1945. Mr. BODNAR would also get his name on the Cup with the Leafs in 1947.
In his years with the Leafs, he centred Mr. Carr and Sweeney Schriner to form the Bacon Line, so called because the trio "brought home the bacon." He later combined with Bud Poile and Gaye Stewart to form the Flying Forts. All three players hailed from Fort William and all were part of a blockbuster, seven-player deal with the Chicago Black Hawks in 1947.
The seasons in Chicago were highlighted by a magnificent feat coming in the third period of the final game of the 1951-52 season. Chicago's Bill Mosienko scored three goals in 21 seconds against the Rangers on March 23, 1952. Mr. BODNAR assisted on all three. The record for the three fastest goals -- coming at 6: 09, 6:20 and 6: 30 -- still stands, as does the record for three fastest assists.
"I never left centre ice," Mr. BODNAR once told Paul Patton of the Globe. "I just won the face-offs and [Mosienko] did the rest."
Mr. BODNAR was later traded to Boston, where he ended his National Hockey League career after the 1954-55 season. He had scored 142 goals with 254 assists in 667 games. Along the way, he had also gone and married that hometown sweetheart, Etta MacDONALD. They were wed in Toronto in 1948 at a ceremony which included such Leaf greats as Teeder Kennedy, Syl Apps, Turk Broda, Don and Nick Metz, and Wally Stanowski, who was best man.
The player's popularity was such that a newspaper photographer was dispatched to Wellesley Hospital in Toronto to capture Mr. BODNAR and his bride posing with their first-born child, a daughter named Bonny Lynn, in 1949. He had rushed to the hospital on a Saturday night after playing the Leafs. He then caught a train for Chicago.
A house painter in the off season during his early hockey career, Mr. BODNAR had a long career as a salesman for a steel company. He also coached the Toronto Marlboros from 1965 to 1970, winning the Memorial Cup in Centennial Year with a roster including future National Hockey League defencemen Mike Pelyk, Brian Glennie and an 18-year-old Brad Park, who would become a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame.
Mr. BODNAR's patience and willingness to adapt to his young players' needs made him an ideal junior coach. He was not a screamer, unlike so many of his peers.
He left the Marlies just before the opening of training camp in 1970, when offered the general manager and coaching posts for the Salt Lake City (Utah) Golden Eagles of the Western Hockey League. His first job as a pro coach ended after a season, as the Buffalo Sabres farm team finished with a woeful record of 18 wins, 49 losses, 5 ties.
Mr. BODNAR headed the Oshawa Generals when named Ontario Hockey League coach of the year in 1972.
He also was one of three coaches to handle Canada's junior team in 1977-78, which won a disappointing bronze medal at the World Cup. The roster included Mike Gartner, Rick Vaive and a 16-year-old Wayne Gretzky.
In recent years, Mr. BODNAR often took part in charity golf tournaments. He has been inducted into sports halls of fame at Oshawa and Northwestern Ontario at Thunder Bay.
Gus BODNAR was born on April 24, 1923, at Fort William (now Thunder Bay), Ontario He died on Canada Day in Oshawa, Ontario He was 82. He is survived by his wife, Etta. He also leaves a son and four daughters.
