WAYNE STEPHENSON

For those who remember the days when Winnipeg hosted the Canada Nats (the name "Team Canada" never arose until 1972) the name Wayne Stephenson is as famous as Johnny Bower or Joe Daley. To others he will be Bernie Parent's back-up in the Flyers' two Stanley Cup wins. Meanwhile, his backup goalie on the Nats was none other than Ken Dryden.
