Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Bunny Dame
Napoleon "Bunny" Dame was born on December 6th, 1913 in Edmonton, Alberta. Dame played eight seasons in the Kootenay league including five years with the famed Trail Smoke Eaters that included a trip to the 1939 World Championships where not only did Dame win a gold medal, but he also led the tournament in goals and points. In 1941 "Bunny" made the leap to professional hockey when he signed a free agent contract with the Montreal Canadiens.

Dame, a left-winger, played 34 games for the Canadiens and scored 2 goals and 5 assists. He was unable to build on his rookie season in the NHL, however, because his career was interrupted by Military Service in 1942.

Dame returned to the game following his military obligations for the 1944-45 season, but he did not return to the National Hockey League level. Dame continued his career playing Senior hockey in Calgary. After one year with Calgary Currie Army he joined the Calgary Stampeders of the Western Canada Senior Hockey League. Dame played five seasons with the Stamps then retired from the game in 1950.
