Bill's hockey career included playing 7 years of pro hockey including the MN North Stars and Fighting Saints. He played in a day when the hockey “rink” often approximated a “boxing ring.” Bill’s was a hockey life that followed the rough and tumble, bare-knuckled, “mano y mano” machismo of that day. While Bill was a tough guy and an enforcer all those years, the weight of his own insecurities and confused existence began to take its toll.
