Defenceman Jim Jamieson came up to the NHL for the proverbial "cup of coffee" during World War II. He was a solid, if unspectacular, player who was available when the NHL was short of decent players.
The native of Brantford, Ontario played with the Windsor Ford club in the old Michigan-Ontario Hockey League in the early 1940s. He suited up for the EHL's New York Rovers for one playoff game in 1942-43 and made the team the next season. When the New York Rangers found themselves thin on defence, Jamieson was called up to play one game in 1943-44. He recorded an assist in his only appearance then rejoined the Rovers.
In 1944, Jamieson travelled west to play two seasons for the Pasadena Panthers of the PCHL before returning east to play one year with the Baltimore Orioles of the EHL. In 1948-49, he spent one year in the IHL then returned home to Brantford to coach the OHA senior Nationals and to play a handful of games with the senior Redmen.
