Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Baldy Northcott
Lawrence "Baldy" Northcott played over 400 NHL games, mostly with the Montreal Maroons. He was able to play defence and left-wing and was blessed with natural offensive abilities.

Born in Calgary, Alberta, Northcott came East to play junior with the NOHA's North Bay Trappers. He joined the Maroons for five games in 1928-29 then became a fixture the next season. Northcott reached double figures in goals seven times and was placed on the NHL first all-star team at left-wing in 1933. Two years later he led all post-season scorers with four goals and five points as the Maroons won their second Stanley Cup. Northcott put up his most impressive numbers while playing on a line with Jimmy Ward and Hooley Smith.

Following the tragic death of Howie Morenz, Northcott took part in the Memorial Game to raise money for the famous Montreal Canadiens star's family. Prior to the 1938-39 season, Northcott was traded to the Chicago Black Hawks along with Russ Blinco and Earl Robinson. After playing one year with the Hawks, the veteran retired and coached the junior Winnipeg Rangers for a year.
