WHA legend Larry Lund, the Rebel League’s 12th all-time leading scorer, is our guest on episode 36 of the PHA Podcast.
Before becoming an original Houston Aero at he age of 32, Lund played 12 outstanding seasons in the minors, mostly in the Western Hockey League with Seattle and Phoenix.
With Gordie Howe and the Aeros, Lund centered the “Go Go Line” with Andre Hinse and Frank Hughes, as the Aeros won the Avco Cup in 1974 and 1975. His best season was 1974–75 when he led the Aeros in points with 108, good fifth overall in the WHA. He played in the annual WHA All-Star game and was productive in the post season.
In his WHA career, Lund recorded 426 points in 459 regular season games and added 65 points in 59 post-season contests.
In a addition to his stellar playing career, Lund is well-know as the founder of the Okanagan Hockey School, the longest running hockey school in North America. Larry is a member of the BC (British Columbia) Hockey Hall of Fame.
Larry was great to interview and he takes you behind the scenes of those colorful Houston Aeros teams and his roommate — Gordie Howe.
