Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Billy Cameron
A veteran of the Great War, Cameron played hockey for 15 years, darkening the doors of the NHL for two of those, first with the Habs, then the Amazing Amerks in New York.

He had started playing hockey before the war but enlisted in 1917 and didn't play much again until the Montreal Canadiens signed him on December 21, 1923. That season, the Habs won the Stanley Cup, but at season's end the team traded him to Vancouver in the Pacific Coast league.

Cameron refused to report, and as a result he was suspended for the entire season. A year later, the New York Americans signed him, though he played only half a season. From there he played four more years in a variety of lesser leagues until he suffered a serious shoulder injury and retired in 1930.
