Centre Harvey Fraser played 21 games for the Chicago Black Hawks in 1944-45. He was a natural goal scorer whose gifts were usually on display in the AHL and the Saskatchewan Senior League.

Born in Soures, Manitoba, Fraser starred with the Yorkton Terriers and Flyers for several years. In 1937-38, he was the SSHL's leading scorer with 51 points in 24 games. During this time he also provided offense for the Wembley Monarchs of Britain in 1938-39. He remained an SSHL regular until the 1943-44 season when he averaged over a point per game in the PCHL with the New Westminster Royals and Seattle Ironmen.

Fraser was recalled by the Black Hawks for 21 games in 1944-45 and played in a number of situations. The rest of the year he spent with the Providence Reds and Cleveland Barons where he proved he could dominate at the AHL level as well senior hockey. He scored 45 goals for the Reds in 1947-48 and registered 55 assists the next year. Fraser was voted on to the AHL second all-star team in 1949 and helped Providence win the Calder Cup that season. He retired in 1951 after a solid year in the OHA senior circuit with the Hamilton Tigers.
