Norm "Dodger" Collings was born in Bradford, Ontario on May 6th, 1910. Collings suited up for several different clubs, starting in 1928 before he got his chance at the National Hockey League level.
In 1934-35, a year that the forward spent primarily with the Philadelphia Arrows of the Canadian-American League, an NHL opportunity presented itself to Collings. The Montreal Canadiens gave him a one game audition and he responded by posting an assist. It would be his only NHL game allowing him to retire with a point-a-game pace. The following season Collings played for the New Haven Eagles the left the game in 1936.
After a year away, "Dodger" Collings returned for a final season, suiting up with the Tulsa Oilers before retiring for good in 1938.
