Percy "Puss" Traub

WCHL First Team All-Star (1924)
2 x WCHL Second Team All-Star (1922, 1923)

Points among Defensemen - 5th(1922), 6th(1923), 9th(1924), 12th(1925), 13th(1926)

Traub was definitely getting onto the AS teams based on his defense, not offense.

Traub's decision to go with the team to Portland proved to be a wise one when after one year with the Portland Rosebuds the team was bought again, this time by the Chicago Black Hawks.

In 1926-27 Traub made his NHL debut with the Hawks patrolling their blue line for 42 games and chipping in 2 assists in that time. Shortly before his second NHL season Traub was sold to the Detroit Cougars for $7500.

The move proved to be wise for Detroit as Traub played a full season for them and upped his out put to 3 goals and 4 points.

XXX accepting a perfect pass from Puss Traub, put the locals in the lead again.
