Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Milt Halliday
Milt Halliday started his hockey career close to home, playing first for the Stewartons and then for the Gunners of the Ottawa City Hockey League. The Ottawa Senators signed him as a free agent on October 24, 1926. Halliday played 38 games for Ottawa that season, and was part of the 1927 Stanley Cup winning squad, the last Ottawa team to win the sacred bowl.

He split the next season between the Senators and the London Panthers of the Canadian Professional Hockey League. During the 1928-29 season, he again divided his time, playing 16 games for Ottawa and 25 for the Niagara Falls Cataracts. The remainder of his career was spent in either the IHL or the Canadian American League. In 1936, he managed to be reinstated as an amateur and returned to the Ottawa City League, where he played until retiring from the game in 1939.
