Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Pat Shea
Pat Shea began his 11-year hockey career at the top, playing his first season of professional hockey in NHL with the Chicago Blackhawks.

Shea, a defenseman, played ten games with the Hawks in the 1931-32 season and scored one assist in that stretch. He would not return to the NHL during his career.

For the next ten years, Shea, born in Potlach, Idaho on October 29th, 1912, bounced around the minor leagues with the bulk of his time spent in the American League. Most of his career was split between the Minneapolis Millers and the Kansas City Greyhounds, both of the AHA. The most successful run was between 1937-40 when Shea scored 23, 27 and 25 points in successive seasons.

Following the 1941-42 campaign, a year spent with the Millers, Pat Shea retired from professional hockey.
