1979 Minto Cup Final – Game Video

I am extremely pleased that I have been able to obtain a copy of the complete 1979 Minto Cup Final game; the Burnaby Lakers vs. the Peterborough Centurions (although I knew them as the Century 21’s). The game that year was played at Max Bell Arena in Calgary, Alberta, and was a Round Robin format.  A third team from Alberta won only one game, ironically against Burnaby.  The Final game was broadcast on CBC with Don Wittman and Morely Kells calling the action.

The two team lists are below, and were provided by the Wamper (Larry Power). Larry has the program from this final game.

I had to break these files up due to the size. I was able to get the entire first period in one file upload, but the second and third periods are both two files.

  1. Marksy,

    I’d like a copy of this DVD as my brother played on the team and I want to give a copy to the Peterborough and District Sports Hall of Fame.

  2. Why do these not work. My dad was the goalie for Burnaby, Greg Pryde, and I was wanting to watch these videos.

  3. What a great memory for me. It was a great time. Dan Sabadash #2 Peterborough
