Memorable Manitobans: Thomas Christian “Tom” Johnson (1928-2007)


Born at Baldur on 18 February 1928, son of Thomas T. Johnson and Dora Landy, he played with the Winnipeg Monarchs (1946-1947) then was recruited by the Montreal Canadiens in the National Hockey League, playing from 1950 to 1963. He was a member of six Stanley Cup-winning teams and he received the Norris Trophy in 1959 before moving to the Boston Bruins where he played until receiving a career-ending injury. He was the coach (1970) then assistant general manager (1972) of two cup-winning teams in Boston. In 1970, he was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. He died at his home at Falmouth, Massachusetts on 22 November 2007.
