Victor Lindquist

Forward Vic Lindquist was born on March 22, 1908 in Gold Rock, Ontario, Canada. He played his minor and junior ice hockey career in Kenora, Ontario and later joined the senior Winnipeg team that won the 1931 Allan Cup. His team represented Canada at the 1932 Olympic Winter Games in Lake Placid and won the Olympic Gold by winning five games and tying only one. Lindquist then joined the Winnipeg Monarchs to represent Canada at the 1935 IIHF World Championship in Davos. He was crowned a World Champion after Canada won all of its games with total goals 44-7. Vic Lindquist was a respected referee for over 30 years after his retirement as a player at national and international levels. In 1960 at Squaw Valley, he participated in his second Olympic Winter Games, this time as a referee, an accomplishment he was particularly proud of and was also referee at the 1963 IIHF World Championship in Stockholm. He once surprised a visiting Swedish player with his ability to understand Swedish due to the fact that he had coached a Swedish National Team in 1935 before turning to officiating. Vic Lindquist passed away on November 30, 1983. He was inducted to the IIHF Hall of Fame within the players' category in 1997.
