Bill Potrecz, a Welland Notre Dame and Niagara College graduate, spent 32 years as a sportswriter at The Standard covering almost every sport imaginable from high school, to junior hockey, to a World Series and Stanley Cup final. He took a voluntary buyout from the St. Catharines Standard in early 2017. By his estimation he has covered more than 1,500 junior hockey games. His passion is baseball but hockey is a close second. His guilty pleasure is professional wrestling, specifically the glory years of the National Wrestling Alliance.
