Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Huddy Bell
Born on Hallowe'en, 1925, Regina, Saskatchewan native Harry Bell began his professional hockey career after completing a year of military service in 1944-45. Joining the New York Rovers of the Eastern Hockey League put Bell under the watchful eyes of the New York Rangers who dressed Bell for a single game during the 1946-47 season.

Bell, a versatile forward who played both right wing and defence, managed an assist in his only NHL game. After spending the rest of that season in the minors, Bell played five more seasons of pro hockey in the United States before returning home for his last season, which he spent with the Regina Caps of the Saskatchewan Senior Hockey League.

Bell was one of the rare two sport athletes. In addition to his hockey career he also played for the CFLs Saskatchewan Roughriders. Despite his modest size 5-foot-10 and 180 pounds, he actually was a lineman for the Roughriders.

On August 27, 2009, Mr. Bell passed away, leaving behind his four children Shirley, Ruth Anne, Tom and Lisa.
