Forward Chuck Scherza played a few games for the Boston Bruins and New York Rangers in the mid-40s. He was a decent scorer who could check and win battles for the puck in the corners.
Born in Brandon, Manitoba, Scherza played junior with the Regina Abbotts and the OHA's Oshawa Generals. He played nine games for Boston in 1943-44 as they were desperately short of players during World War II. A few weeks into the season he was sent to the New York Rangers for cash and was a role player for the remainder of the season and part of the next.
After his brief NHL tenure, Scherza spent several years with the Providence Reds of the AHL. He helped the club win the Calder Cup in 1949 and played senior hockey with the Trois Rivieres Lions and North Bay Trappers before retiring in 1959.
