Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jackie Schmidt
Left-winger John Schmidt played 45 games for the Boston Bruins in 1942-43. He was better known as a fine scorer for many years in various senior leagues.

Born in Odessa, Saskatchewan, Schmidt played junior with the Regina Abbotts. In 1942 he joined the Bruins for a year after they lost many players to military service, including the entire "Kraut Line". Known to his teammates as "Jackie" Schmidt scored six goals and checked well while helping Boston remain as competitive as possible.

After his short stay in the NHL, Schmidt played senior hockey for many years until retiring in 1957. He enjoyed his finest years with the QSHL's Valleyfield Braves in the 40s and 50s when he reached the 20-goal mark four straight years.
