William "Bill" Mosienko (born November 2, 1921 in Winnipeg , Manitoba , † July 9, 1994 ) was a Canadian ice hockey player (right winger) who played from 1941 to 1955 for the Chicago Black Hawks in the National Hockey League . His grandson Tyler Mosienko is also a professional ice hockey player.


Bill grew up in Winnipeg with nine brothers and four sisters. He started playing ice hockey when he was 10 years old. After assignments for various junior teams in Winnipeg, he switched to the Chicago Black Hawks at the age of 18 , but was initially only used with the Kansas City Americans and the Providence Reds .

From the 1941/42 season he came to missions in the NHL, where he made the breakthrough in 1943 with Clint Smith and Doug Bentley at the side. Together, the three got 219 points. A record that was broken by one point the following year by Montréals Elmer Lach , Toe Blake and Maurice Richard .

From 1945, Doug also had his brother Max Bentley at his side and the three were called the Pony Line . He played five times in an NHL All-Star Game , the last time in 1947 when he broke his elbow and was sidelined for two months. A highlight of his career was a hat trick within 21 seconds (between 6:09 and 6:30 in the last third) in a game with the New York Rangers . All three goals were placed on him by Gus Bodnar and his team was not in power play .

In 1955 he said goodbye to the NHL and moved home to the Winnipeg Warriors , who played in the Western Hockey League . Here he worked for a few years as a player and later as a coach.

In 1965 he was honored with the induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame . He was inducted into the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame in 1980 and the Manitoba Hockey Hall of Fame in 1985 . In 1991, the Keewatin Arena was renamed the Bill Mosienko Arena by the City of Winnipeg .
