Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Leo Lamoureux
Leo Lamoureux was a nifty playmaking defenceman who could also play agressively in his own zone. In addition to his six years in the NHL, he was an accomplished competitor overseas, in the minors, and in senior hockey circles.

Born in Espanola, Ontario, Lamoureux played junior in the OHA with the Oshawa Generals and the NOHA with Timmins Black Shirts and Kirkland Lake Blue Devils. He turned pro in 1937-38 with the Windsor Chryslers of the MOHL then spent a year in Britain with the Earls Court Rangers.

After two more years of senior hockey, he played one game for the Montreal Canadiens in 1941-42. He became a regular on the Habs the next year and helped the club win the Stanley Cup in 1944 and 1946. After leaving the NHL in 1947 he toiled in the minors and several senior leagues, retired for two years and then played with the IHL's Indianapolis Chiefs in 1955-56 before hanging up his skates for good.
