Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Bill Kyle
Centre Bill Kyle played three games with the New York Rangers in the early 1950s. In an amateur and pro career that lasted two decades, he was an important member of a host of teams in western North America.

The native of Dysart, Saskatchewan played two seasons at Notre Dame College under the legendary Pere Murray. He also played junior B with the Dysart Devils and spent a year with the Regina Commandos of the SJHL. After serving two years in the military during World War II, Kyle played two years in the PCHL with the Portland Eagles and four seasons with the Regina Caps of the WCSHL. Kyle was in the midst of a high scoring career in Regina when he played two games for the Rangers in 1949-50 and a single game the next year. It was also during this time that he played in Regina with his older brother Gus who later played three full NHL seasons

During the remainder of the 1950s he played mostly with the Caps but also saw duty with the Sherbrooke Saints of the QSHL and the Brandon Regals of the WHL. He left the game in 1955 for three years but returned for two more seasons with the Regina Caps before leaving the game for good in 1960.
