Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Eddie Dorohoy
Centre/left-winger Eddie Dorohoy played 16 games for the Montreal Canadiens in 1948-49. He enjoyed a long career as a reliable goal scorer mostly in the Pacific Coast/Western Hockey League.

Born in Medicine Hat, Alberta, Dorohoy played junior with the Lethbridge Native Sons. After leading the AJHL in assists in 1947-48 he looked solid in 16 games with the Habs the next season. The gifted forward was sent down to the USHL's Dallas Texans before the end of the season and never returned to the NHL.

Dorohoy was a regular in the minors until he retired in 1965. He topped the 20-goal mark nine times and led the WHL in assists on three occasions. Dorohoy contributed to the Victoria Cougars' PCHL championship in 1951 and was a first team all-star in 1959 after notching 109 points for the Calgary Stampeders. That year he was also named the Leader Cup winner as the MVP of the Prairie Division.
