G. Bert Lindsay




Quote:
Goalkeeper Bert Lindsay played with the Montreal Wanderers and Toronto Arenas during the first two seasons of the NHL. Prior to this he was a well known figure in the PCHA, NHA and various senior leagues.

Born in Garafraxa County, Ontario, Lindsay first made a name for himself by playing senior hockey at McGill University in Montreal and the Toronto Rowing club. In 1906 he moved to Renfrew and played in the Ottawa Valley senior loop for two years before toiling in the Federal Amateur Hockey League with the local Creamery Kings.

In 1909, Lindsay was the starting goalie for the Creamery Kings when they joined the newly formed National Hockey Association. He remained in the city the next year to play for the renamed Millionaires before he was lured away to the Patrick brothers' Pacific Coast Hockey Association.

Lindsay starred for four seasons on the Victoria Aristocrats and led the PCHA in wins in 1913 and 1914. The talented backstopper was named to the association's all-star team in 1913. Two years later he returned to the NHA with the Montreal Wanderers and played with the club for two seasons. He was on hand when the Wanderers became one of the founding members of the NHL in 1917 then folded after their arena burned to the ground.
