Welcome to episode 42 of the Pro Hockey Alumni Podcast. This is Part 1 of our two part series with WHA and NHL All Star Morris Lukowich, who scored over 300 major league goals by combining great skating, hard shooting and a willingness to absorb punishment in front of the net.
After a brilliant junior career with the Medicine Hat Tigers, Morris was drafted by the NHL Pittsburgh Penguins in 1976, but opted to play with Gordie Howe and the WHA Houston Aeros. He also has some insightful revelations about his interactions with Gordie Howe and Bobby Hull.
He immediately made an impact in the WHA and eventually became a 65-goal scorer and Avco Cup Champion with the 1978-79 Winnipeg Jets. He was also highly productive in the NHL, topping the 30-goal mark four times.
You’ll be enthralled by Luke’s memories of his often hard-to-believe journey through youth hockey, juniors, Houston, Winnipeg, Boston, LA and beyond. Luke doesn’t hold back with these fascinating hockey tales, but he also offers meaningful lessons in perseverance, commitment and courage.
