Our guest on episode 43 of the Pro Hockey Alumni podcast is Mike Boland, an original member of the WHA Ottawa Nationals, a Calder Cup winner with the Springfield Kings, briefly a Broad St. Bully and, ultimately, one of Canada’s premier cinematographers.
Mike is humorous and personable and he’s got captivating stories about hockey legends like Bobby Hull (there’s a part 2 to the preceding story), Billy Smith, Butch Goring, Battleship Bob Kelly, Dave “Killer” Hanson, Gilles “Looney” Gratton, Johnny Wilson and many more.
Mike doesn’t hold back as he relives his journey through the big leagues, the minor leagues and European hockey. All of out guests have been great — and Mike is certainly no exception.
