Peter Conacher is a retired professional ice hockey player who played 229 games in the National Hockey League. Conacher played with the Toronto Maple Leafs, Chicago Black Hawks, and New York Rangers. In 1959, Conacher played for the World Champion Belleville McFarlands. This is TRUE Canadian Royalty! The Conacher family, in particular Peter’s Uncle Lionel and his Dad, Charlie are Canadian icons. Charlie was captain of Maple Leafs and Lionel was Canada’s Athlete of the Half-Century. Now, at 85 years old, Peter is as humble as ever and I'm oh so grateful that I had the opportunity to pick his brain. He kept things short and to the point - just how I like it.
