Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jack Dyte
Born in the Ontario town of New Liskeard on October 13, 1918, John Dyte, more commonly known as Jack, played his junior hockey with the Barrie Colts. After a season of senior hockey in Niagara Falls, Dyte moved on the Eastern Hockey League for three seasons and a single year with the Montreal Royals of the Quebec Senior League before the Chicago Black Hawks came calling.

With two All-Star selections in the EHL under his belt, Dyte earned a free agent contract with the 'Hawks and stepped into their line up during the 1943-44 season. Dyte spent 27 games on the Chicago blue line and managed to score a goal but also spent 22 games in the American Hockey League.

In June of that year, the Black Hawks traded Dyte to Buffalo of the AHL for cash. Dyte spent one season with the Buffalo Bisons, and another AHL campaign with the St. Louis Flyers, before he gave up playing and took a coaching job with his hometown team.

After coaching the New Liskeard Pioneers for two seasons of City Senior hockey, Dyte returned to hockey for one more season as a player, suiting up for the North Sydney Victorias of the Cape Breton Senior Hockey League. That year, 1949-50, proved to be Dyte's final season.
