COMBINING PHYSICALITY WITH FINESSE, GLEN HARMON WON TWO STANLEY CUPS WHILE PATROLLING THE CANADIENS’ BLUE LINE, IN 1944 AND 1946.

Glen Harmon first came to the attention of the Montreal Canadiens when he suited up for the junior Winnipeg Rangers, a team that defeated the Montreal Royals for the Memorial Cup in 1941. Rights to the Holland, Manitoba native were quickly snapped up by the Habs in that year’s Inter-League Draft, weeks after his team had won the Canadian Junior Championship.

After a season and a half with the Quebec Senior Hockey League’s Montreal Senior Canadiens, he was added to the big club’s roster in 1942-43 and played 27 games with the Habs. For the next eight seasons, the 5-foot-7, 175-pound rearguard took a regular shift on the Canadiens’ blue line, becoming one of the most complete defensemen in the game.

He scored five times and assisted on nine goals in his initial campaign, numbers that surpassed those of many veteran defensemen. Despite appearing in less than half the games on the schedule, Harmon was runner-up for the Calder Trophy as the NHL’s top rookie.

A sound positional defenseman with the offensive skills to support his forwards, Harmon was an able skater who could carry the puck himself or relay it to teammates with his crisp, sharp passes. For nine years, he played an integral role in Montreal’s transition game.

His stocky frame and low center of gravity were put to good use, thrilling the Forum crowds as Harmon laid some of the league’s most jarring bodychecks on enemy players.

A member of Stanley Cup-winning teams in both 1944 and 1946, Harmon was named to the NHL’s Second All-Star Team in both 1945 and 1949. He enjoyed his best offensive season in 1947-48 when he scored 10 goals, breaking into double figures for the only time in his nine-year NHL career.

The 1950-51 campaign was Harmon’s last NHL season. After spending four years with the QSHL Montreal Royals, he hung up his skates for good in 1955 and embarked on a long and successful career in automotive sales.

In 452 regular season games, Harmon recorded 50 goals and 96 assists. In the playoffs, he notched five goals and 10 assists in 53 postseason games.
