Biography

Herbert PINDER

Ice hockey forward Herbert “Herb” Pinder was a skater with the Saskatoon Blackhawks of the Kinsmen Peewee Hockey League and won a provincial midget championship in 1963. After a season with the Saskatoon Blade Bees, he joined the Saskatoon Blades of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League in 1964 and spent three years with them, earning honors as the league’s assist leader in 1967 (his brother Gerry was the goal and points leader). With his brother he joined the Canadian men’s national ice hockey team in 1967 and travelled with them to the 1968 Winter Olympics, where they captured a bronze medal. At the tournament he played in four games and scored one goal. In 1969 he joined the Vancouver Canucks of the Western Hockey League but, after only three games, he suffered a serious ankle injury and three surgeries could not save his career. He entered the University of Manitoba and eventually became a lawyer, and he now represents two dozen players in the National Hockey League. An avid golfer, he won the Saskatchewan junior championship in 1965. He was inducted into the Saskatoon Sports Hall of Fame in 1994.
