Damore, born in Niagara Falls, Ontario on July 10th, 1916 was a seven time All-Star for the Hershey Bears and twice won the George L. Davis Trophy given to the netminder with the fewest goals against in the Eastern Hockey League. Damore got a chance to play in the NHL in the middle of his minor league career when Boston Bruins goaltender Frank Brimsek was injured.
Damore joined the Bruins for a game versus the Montreal Canadiens on January 25th, 1942. Damore recorded the victory thanks in part to solid offensive support from his new teammates who scored seven goals in the 7-3 victory. After his one game audition Damore returned to the minors for good.
After his final season with the Hershey Bears in 1946, Damore joined the Philadelphia Rockets of the American Hockey League for the 1946-47 campaign then Damore retired from hockey.
He returned, however, a year later and played two more seasons in the Eastern Hockey League before retiring a second and final time in 1952.
