On This Day June 6th.

June 6: On this day in 1962, the skeletal remains of Bill Barilko were found in the dense Northern Ontario bush, 11 years after he and a friend took a small plane up north on a fishing trip. A couple of months after Barilko had scored the 1951-Cup-winning goal, he went missing. Ironically, 1962 was the Leafs' first Cup since the year of Barilko's disappearance.
