Listed at 5-foot-5, 156 pounds, Ottawa native Rod Lorrain was among the smallest men to wear a Canadiens uniform. Lorrain proved himself as a solid second-line performer for four complete seasons during a period when the club was in a 13-year Stanley Cup drought.

Playing his first game at age 21, the diminutive, smooth-skating right wing joined the club on a full-time basis in 1936-37. With Johnny Gagnon and Joffrey Desilets handling most of the duties on the right side, Lorrain played sparingly, picking up nine points in 47 games.

A 32-point 1937-38 sophomore campaign was the best offensive year of his career. Playing a regular shift, Lorrain finished fourth among Habs when it came to soiling the score sheet with only Toe Blake and linemate, Georges Mantha, potting more than his 13 goals.

In 1938-39, the gentlemanly Lorrain, who amassed only 30 penalty minutes in 179 regular season NHL games, was one of only four Habs to hit double digits in goals. He also led all Montreal scorers in the playoffs with three assists in as many games.

The 1939-40 schedule was Lorrain’s last as a member of the Montreal Canadiens. He recorded only six points in 41 games as the team, not faring much better, missed the playoffs. With numerous rookies making the club to start the 1940-41 season, Lorrain found himself assigned to the minors and played his final four NHL games in 1941-42 called up to replace injured Canadiens players.
