Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Wilf Loughlin
Wilf Loughlin was a versatile player who could function at defence and left-wing. He played 14 games for the Toronto St. Pats in 1923-24 but was better known in western Canada as a reliable worker in the PCHA and WCHL/WHL.

The younger brother of well known defenceman Clem Loughlin played senior hockey in Winnipeg with the Monarchs and Vimy squads. Beginning in 1918-19 he spent five years with the PCHA's Victoria Cougars where he provided an important mix of offense and defence.

In October, 1923, Loughlin was traded to the St. Pats for cash and played a utility role in 14 matches for his new club. Unaccustomed to the tighter checking eastern style of play, he returned west the next season to compete for the Regina Capitals of the WCHL. He then spent a couple of years with the WHL's Edmonton Eskimos as well as the Winnipeg Maroons of the AHA and the Prairie League's Moose Jaw Maroons before retiring in 1927.
