Bud Grant long raved about the Canadians that were the backbone of the team’s Glory Years in the late 1950s/early 1960s. Cornel Piper was among those homegrowns. He played his junior ball with the Winnipeg Rods and after joining the Bombers in 1957, was a mainstay on the club’s four championships over the next five years.
