For those who do not remember the name Barton Bradley for his NHL exploits, there is good reason. In fact, as time passes, Bradley and players like him are gaining notoriety for their contribution as "One Game Wonders" of the NHL.
Bradley's pro career began at the age of 19 as a member of the Hershey Bears in 1949-50, where he played in 61 games, scoring 16 goals and 35 points. He was called up for one game with the Boston Bruins that season. As it turns out, that would be the one and only NHL appearance of his life.
Bradley continued to play at the professional level for another nine years, but he never played again in the NHL. The pinnacle of his career came during his two years as a member of the Tacoma Rockets of the WHL. In his first season he scored 37 goals and 76 points in 70 games. In 1952-53, he had 26 goals and 73 points in 70 games.
From there, Bradley moved on to the New Westminster Royals, the Victoria Cougars and the Seattle Americans before finishing out his career playing two years with the Belleville McFarlands, retiring after the 1958-59 campaign
