Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- John Webster
John Webster played his first season as a professional in 1940-41 with the Baltimore Orioles of the Eastern Hockey League and impressed as a rookie by posting 24 goals and 61 points in 62 games. Despite his success he left the EHL and spent the next two seasons playing Senior Hockey before his career was interrupted by his military obligations.

Two years later he returned to the ice and signed back on with the Orioles. During the 1946-47 season, Webster left the EHL and joined the New Haven Ramblers of the American League. During his third full season with the club "Chick," as he was known to teammates, was granted a chance to play in the National Hockey League. Webster joined the New York Rangers for 14 games during the 1949-50 campaign but the center was unable to register a point in that time, though he did earn two minor penalties.

Webster returned to the minors and spent his final three seasons with five different clubs. After suiting up for three different teams, all in different leagues, during the 1952-53 season, Webster retired from the game.
