Standing 5-foot-7 and tipping the scales at 160 pounds, Polly Drouin was far from the biggest NHLers of his era, but the Verdun native’s skills allowed him to carve out a six-season, 160-game career with his hometown Canadiens.

Drouin was only19 years old – and technically the property of the St. Louis Eagles – when he played his first four games in a Montreal sweater in late 1934-35, a situation that was corrected when the Habs claimed the left winger in the dispersal draft held after the Eagles went out of business.

He split the next two seasons between Montreal and minor league clubs in Ottawa and New Haven, collecting his first NHL goal and eight assists in the 34 games he played with the Canadiens over that span before sticking with the Habs for good to open the 1937-38 schedule.

Assigned a supporting role on the team, Drouin responded with the best offensive numbers of his career, posting a 20-point season on the strength of seven goals and 13 helpers. He followed this up with a solid 18-point effort in 1938-39 despite missing 20 games on the schedule that winter.

By 1939-40, Drouin was once again shuttling between the Habs, who were deep at his position, and the minors. After making 42 appearances in a Montreal uniform that season, he was dressed for only 21 big league games the next year, his final NHL stint.

Drouin played on for several years, a skilled and high-scoring forward in both the AHL and Quebec senior ranks before hanging up his skates for good after the 1946-47 season.
