Lindsay Junior C Lions-Merchants Hockey Teams (1963 – 1965)
The legacy of this “team of distinction” has lived on in the Lindsay & District community for decades. Comprised of a talented group of local hockey players, many of whom still reside in the area, the Lindsay Lions/Merchants teams reached the Ontario finals in 1964 and 1965. The club, coached by former National Hockey League players Gus Bodnar and Clare (“Rags”) Raglan, provided outstanding entertainment for local fans who have never forgotten the thrilling games and achievements of the squad. Many players have been previous inductees to the Lindsay & District Hall, and several advanced through hockey systems over the years to enjoy considerable success at the Junior A, semi-professional and professional levels.
