Netminder Jean Marois appeared briefly for the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Chicago Black Hawks in the 40s and 50s. He was best known as a workhorse in the Quebec Senior League.
The Quebec City native was a solid junior with the St. Michael's Majors of the OHA. While still a junior he was recalled to make one start for the Maple Leafs on November 18, 1943 and acquitted himself well in a 5-2 loss to the Montreal Canadiens. In 1945-46 he began a string of nine full seasons in the QSHL, mostly with the Quebec Aces. During this period he topped the 30-win mark twice and led the Quebec League with 31 wins in 1951-52.
In November, 1953, Marois was signed as a free agent by Chicago. He lost both his NHL starts in 1953-54 and also played in the AHL and QSHL that year. He retired in 1955 after playing for the Aces and the AHL's Providence Reds.
