Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Charlie Cotch
Born near the turn of the century in Sarnia, Ontario, left winger Charlie Cotch played in three different leagues in his brief four-year hockey career. Cotch began his playing days with the London Tecumsehs, an Ontario Hockey Association Senior club. After one year with London, Cotch signed with the Vancouver Maroons of the Pacific Coast Hockey League on November 7th 1922.

Cotch was held scoreless in his first season with the Maroons, but scored a pair of goals in his second campaign on the West Coast. On March 26th, 1924 the Maroons traded Cotch to the Montreal Canadiens in an intra-league trade. Before he ever played a game for the Canadiens he was traded again, this time to the Hamilton Tigers.

Cotch made his NHL debut with the Tigers playing four games and scoring one goal. The Tigers released Cotch and he soon caught on with the Toronto St. Pats.

Cotch played the last games of his career with Toronto, suiting up for seven scoreless games before retiring in 1925.
