Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Larry Hale
After starting his amateur career with the Edmonton Oil Kings of the CAHL and playing for two Memorial Cups, Larry Hale spent six seasons between the IHL and WHL before being picked up by the Philadelphia Flyers in the 1968 Intra-League Draft.

Although he had not been considered a sure thing for the line-up during training camp, his consistent play earned him a regular spot with the inconsistent '68-'69 Flyers. He split the 1969-70 season with the Flyers and the Quebec Aces of the AHL. The 1970-71 season saw him back on Broad Street full time, but by 1971-72 he spent the majority of his season in the minors.

Although he played for seven more seasons, he did not return to the NHL and retired from professional hockey in 1979.
