A GRITTY, TWO-WAY CENTER, BILLY REAY’S CAREER WAS CUT SHORT BY INJURY – A TESTAMENT TO HIS RUGGED STYLE OF PLAY.

A crafty playmaker who played a tougher game than his small stature led opponents to believe, Reay was comfortable in traffic, with a precise passing ability that saw him rack up assists during his time with the Canadiens.

The mention of Billy Reay's name usually brings up thoughts of coaching the Chicago Blackhawks. It is often overlooked, however, that he was also an accomplished NHL centreman in the sparkplug style of the NHL's 1940s.
