William Harvey "The Dapper Yapper" Warwick (November 17, 1924 – October 3, 2007) was a professional Canadian ice hockey forward. He was inducted into the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame and Museum.[1]

Playing career[edit]

Born in Regina, Saskatchewan, he was one of three hockey-playing brothers which included Dick and Grant Warwick. Bill began his hockey career with the Regina Abbotts. Most of his pro hockey career was spent in the minors, but he also played 14 games with the National Hockey League New York Rangers during the 1942 and 1944 season seasons. He had three goals and three assists with the Rangers.[1]

All three Warwick brothers played on the Penticton Vees when they won the world men's hockey championship for Canada in 1955. Warwick said of the victory, "Boy, this was better than winning the Stanley Cup." During the championship game, Warwick scored two goals as the Canadian team beat the Russians 5–0.[1]

After he retired from hockey, Warwick opened a restaurant in Edmonton.
