Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Ty Arbour
A veteran of the Great War, Ty was the older brother of Jack Arbour who had a similar, though slightly more successful, career. He was in the services from 1915 to ‘18, after which he pursued a hockey career out West, moving from Brandon to Edmonton and, finally, out to Vancouver to play for the local Maroons.

Vancouver sold Arbour to Pittsburgh during the Pirates’ first NHL season, and early the next season he was involved in a three-way deal that saw him go to Chicago, Bert McCaffery to Pittsburgh, and Eddie Rodden of Chicago to Toronto. He spent all of the next four years with the Hawks, though the team struggled on the ice and at the gate.

Arbour finished his career in the minors, playing two years in the IHL and finishing with the Edmonton Eskimos.
