Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Hugh Currie
Hugh Currie was born on October 22nd 1925 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and spent his first six seasons of professional hockey with eight different franchises in four different leagues. During the 1950-51 season Currie produced career numbers as an All-Star with the Buffalo Bisons, scoring 9 goals and 65 points from the blueline and also earned a call up to the Montreal Canadiens.

Currie played just one game for the Canadiens but was unable to get on the score sheet. It was the only game Currie played at the NHL level.

Currie played 12 more seasons in the minors with the majority of his time spent with the Vancouver Canucks of the Western Hockey League, but also had stops of varying lengths with six other clubs. Currie retired in 1963 following a 52-point effort with the Philadelphia Ramblers then accepted a coaching post with the Edmonton Nuggets.

After two years behind the Nuggets bench Currie came out of retirement and returned to the ice for 7 games for the club he used to coach and put up six points. His second retirement from the game, after his 7 game return, was final.
