Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Gord McFarlane
Born in Manitoba, Gord McFarlane moved to Alberta with his family at a young age and went to high school in Edmonton, where he played for the school hockey team. In 1920 he began a three-year association with the Calgary Fourex CCSHL.

At the age of 22, McFarlane headed to the U.S. west coast, signing a deal to play for the Seattle Metropolitans of the PCHA in 1923. He was there for a little over a year before heading back to his home province of Alberta, stopping in Calgary where he laced up the blades with the Tigers of the WCHL for two years. In November, 1926 the Tigers sent McFarlane to the NHL's Chicago Blackhawks for cash. It was a good deal for the cash-starved Tigers and made sense for the Blackhawks, who had been hit by a rash of injuries. Chicago team management was also impressed by the fact McFarlane had shown uncommon versatility in being able to perform either on defense or right wing. He was called up for two games with the Hawks that year, which accounted for his entire NHL experience.

Although he never again made it back to the NHL, McFarlane remained in competitive hockey for another eleven years with a variety of teams in several different leagues. He retired after the 1937-38 season as a member of the ASHL's Calgary Rangers.
