Biography

Stan Wagner was a backup goalie for [Bill Cockburn] of the Winnipeg Hockey Club and won the Allan Cup in 1931, bestowed annually upon the men’s amateur senior ice hockey champions in Canada. He joined the team on their journey to represent Canada at the 1932 Winter Olympics and took home a gold medal from the ice hockey tournament. He was goalie in Canada’s match against Poland, which the team won 10-0. With his Allan Cup-winning team, he was inducted into the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame in 2004, where his identification card, participation pin and crest, gold medal and accompanying diploma from the Olympics now reside. He was the last survivor of the team that won in Lake Placid.

After Stan Wagner had first started studying to become an auditor, he decided to become a pilot. In 1931, he founded the Northern Air Transport and in 1934 he became a pilot, later manager with Canadian Airways, and from 1948 with Northern Airways. A lake in the north of Manitoba was named after him. In the 1930s, he barely survived a crash into the Red Lake in Ontario in a plane he had piloted himself.
