Terrance "Terry" O'Malley

Terry O'Malley was an original member of Father David Bauer's Canadian National Team program and was with the club from its inception in 1963-64 until it was dismantled in 1970. During six seasons, O'Malley played at four World Championships and two Olympic Games. The defensive defenseman was a member of bronze medal-winning teams at the World Championships in 1966 and 1967 and at the Grenoble Olympics in 1968. When Canada returned to play in International Ice Hockey Federation events in 1977, Father Bauer was able to convince Hockey Canada to re-establish the National Team program in order to comply with the rules of sending an amateur team to the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid. A surprise player surviving the final roster cut that year was 39-year-old Terry O'Malley who would play at the Olympics again 15 years after making his international debut at the Games in Innsbruck. Terry O'Malley went to Japan in 1971 where he played and coached until 1978 and was voted their most valuable player in 1974 through 1978.
