Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Walt Farrant
Right-winger Walt Farrant lived a dream by making it to the NHL for one game with the Chicago Black Hawks in 1943-44. Apart from his big league cameo, he was a consistent scorer as an amateur in Toronto and Minneapolis.

Born in Toronto, Farrant was a top scorer for three seasons with the Parkdale Canoe Club in the city's west end. In 1932-33 he joined the senior Toronto Marlboros for three seasons and later played for the All-Stars and City Service teams.

Farrant turned pro in 1935-36 with the IAHL's Rochester Cardinals and impressed with 26 goals in 46 games. He was signed as a free agent by the New York Americans but was never recalled to the NHL. He split the 1936-37 season between New Haven and Providence and adjusted well to the high calibre of play.

Farrant enjoyed the most productive period of his career in the AHA with the Minneapolis Millers. In 1938-39 he set personal highs with 35 goals and 69 points. Early in the 1940-41 season he joined the Tulsa Oilers of the same league and was a consistent point producer. Farrant returned to the Toronto Marlboros in 1941-42 and dominated with 37 points in 21 games. He spent two years with the Toronto Peoples Credit team before retiring in 1944. That last year he played one game as an emergency injury replacement for Chicago at the Maple Leaf Gardens against Toronto.
