Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Phil Maloney
The Boston Bruins signed Maloney as a free agent in 1948. He joined the NHL team in 1949-50 and proved to be a gentlemanly, playmaking centre, scoring 15 goals and 31 assists as a rookie and finishing in second place to teammate Jack Gelineau in the Calder Trophy voting.

But after just 13 games into the next season, Maloney was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs with Leo Boivin, Fern Flaman, and Ken Smith for Bill Ezinicki and Vic Lynn. Maloney played just one game with the Leafs that season, spending most of the campaign with Pittsburgh of the AHL. He didn't return to the NHL until the 1952-53 season, and even then for just 29 games.

Maloney spent the next five seasons in the minor leagues but was traded to Chicago in December 1958, where he played for parts of two seasons. He starred in the Western Hockey League from the 1961-62 season up to his retirement in 1970. Maloney coached the Vancouver Canucks from 1973-74 to 1976-77.
