A well-travelled player before breaking into the NHL in 1941-42, Leo Lamoureaux skated extensively in Ontario amateur ranks, playing in both the Northern Ontario mining districts of his birth and more southerly hockey hotbeds before turning pro with the Earls Court Rangers of the British National League in 1938-39.

The Espanola, ON native joined the Habs full-time in 1942-43 and served as a valued member of the blue line corps for the next five seasons, the longest period of time he would call any hockey town home. A tough, gritty performer in his own end, the 5-foot-11, 175-pound Lamoureaux doubled as an offensive threat and defensive stalwart, making life in front of the Montreal net unpleasant for oncoming forwards.

A masterful playmaker, adept at turning the action back on his opponents with precise outlet passing and puck-carrying ability, Lamoureaux amassed 23 assists and scored eight times, both career highs, in 1943-44 as his team dropped only a handful of games on their way to the Stanley Cup.

Following up a 22 assist effort in 1944-45, Lamoureaux’s name was engraved for a second time after Montreal’s championship run in 1946.

The 1946-47 season was Lamoureaux’s final NHL campaign. After appearing in 50 of the 60 games on the schedule, he resumed his nomadic ways, suiting up for a succession of minor league teams, finally hanging up his gear for the last time at the age of 40 to devote his efforts exclusively to coaching.
