Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jim Bartlett
Rocky Jim Bartlett once scored two goals five seconds apart, setting an AHL record in 1958. The goaler was Gerry McNeil of Rochester, one of many to be beaten by Bartlett over the years.

The feisty little winger had an up-and-down hockey career, one that stretched for 24 years and 503 professional goals. He had his first skate in the NHL with the Montreal Canadiens, sticking around long enough for a cup of coffee when Maurice Richard was suspended at the end of the 1954-55 season. He played with the Rangers for three years and the Bruins one (1960-61), but only the 58-59 season did he play the full 70-game schedule.

But Bartlett spent the majority of his time in the AHL with Baltimore and the Providence Reds, where he was a member of the highly-regarded B-Line with Pierre Brillant and Stan Baliuk, all long-time minor pros who struggled to find a roster spot in the NHL, Bartlett because he had trouble staying out of the penalty box.

Bartlett almost had his hockey life cut in half in 1963 when he was hit in the eye with a stick. The hemorrhaging was so severe that initial concerns had him losing the eye. But, Rocky was back in a few months.
