Pete Stemkowski, "the richest man in Winnipeg"

1

Permit me a funny story...Stemkowski was the Sharks color guy for a while, and I had a chance to meet him back in 2003 or 2004. He said that when he signed his first pro contract for $7000 a year, he went home for the summer and he was "the richest man in Winnipeg!" That would have been 1965 or 1966, so the numbers seem a little off...Plus I swear he said he was talking about signing with the Rangers...
