Legends of Hockey
Right-winger Leroy Goldsworthy was a fine two-way player on six different NHL clubs in the 20s and 30s. He was a tireless worker whose strength was consistency.

During the early 30s he skated extensively in the IAHL but also played part time with the Detroit Falcons/Red Wings and the Chicago Black Hawks. During the 1934 playoffs he was an important checker when the team won the Stanley Cup. The next year he was traded to the Montreal Canadiens as part of a blockbuster deal that also featured Howie Morenz and Lionel Conacher. That year Goldsworthy hit the 20-goal mark the only time in his career while playing with George Mantha and Armand Mondou. He later suited up for the Boston Bruins and New York Americans where he was a fine defensive player.
Canadiens Legends:
Throughout much of his career Leroy Goldsworthy was utilized as a checking forward, but he could score some goals too. His best stint came in Montreal in the 1934/35 and 1935/36 season. He scored 35 goals in 80 games over the two seasons.

Described as "a tireless worker whose strength was his consistency," Goldy found some magic in Montreal. Perhaps it was the number 9 jersey he wore nearly a decade before Rocket Richard arrived in Montreal. Then again, maybe not. He wore number 75 when he first arrived in Montreal from the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Black Hawks.

Leroy Goldsworthy, a right winger who may have played some defense late in his career, played with the New York Rangers, Detroit Red Wings, Boston Bruins and New York Americans.
