Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Joe Shack
Left-winger Joe Shack played parts of two seasons with the New York Rangers in the mid-40s. He was a fine goal scorer who enjoyed plenty of success in Great Britain and various senior leagues.

The Winnipeg native played junior with the local Elmwoods and the senior Winnipegs. He then moved to the UK and starred with the Harringay Greyhounds for three years before returning home. In 1941-42 he played well for the AHL's New Haven Eagles and notched 14 points in 20 games as an injury replacement for the Rangers.

In 1944-45 Shack was a fine checker and player for New York and formed a decent lline with Fred Thurier and Fred Hunt. The next year he began his first of three years with the St. Paul Saints of the USHL. This was followed by several years in the UK with the Harringay Racers and a year coaching with the Swedish national team before he retired in 1956.
