Centre Mike Neville played briefly in the NHL during the 1920s and 30s. He was a fine passer who could also find the net himself with regularity. Most of his success came in the Can-Pro and IAHL.
The Toronto native played in the Quebec Provincial Hockey League with three different outfits before joining the senior London AAA squad in 1924-25. He was signed by the Toronto St. Pats in January 1925 and scored a goal in 12 regular season games. Neville also played two playoff games that year before his club was eliminated.
The tricky centre played 33 games for the St. Pats in 1925-26 but that was his last look at the NHL for five years. He played in the Can-Pro circuit with Hamilton and Stratford before joining the Windsor Bulldogs in 1928-29. That year Neville led all post-season scorers with five assists and helped Windsor win the Can-Pro championship. He remained with the team when it joined the newly-formed IAHL the next year.
In 1930-31, Neville returned to the NHL for 19 games with the New York Americans. He then played nearly six years in the minors before retiring in 1936.
