Memorable Manitobans: Peter Langelle (1917-2010)

Hockey player.

Born at Winnipeg, he was playing with the Winnipeg Monarchs when they won the Memorial Cup in 1937 and scored the winning goal for the Toronto Maple Leafs in the seventh game of the 1941-1942 Stanley Cup final, dubbed the “Toronto Turnaround” after the team rebounded from losing the first three games to the Detroit Red Wings. He then enlisted and served with the Royal Canadian Air Force during the Second World War, working in England as an aircraft mechanic. On his return from overseas, he played for five seasons with the Pittsburgh Hornets in the American Hockey League then began a 35-year career in sales with Labatt’s Breweries. He played minor-league and amateur hockey until 1954. He lived for several years in Dauphin before returning to Winnipeg around 1970 where he died on 29 November 2010.
