Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Marcel Dheere
Left-winger Marcel Dheere played 11 games for the Montreal Canadiens in 1942-43. He was a decent goal scorer, particularly in the USHL, and played a with a fair bit of grit for someone who stood 5'7".

The native of St. Boniface, Manitoba played his amateur hockey in the MJHL with the Treheme juniors. He scored 18 goals as a rookie pro with the Portland Buckaroos of Pacific Coast League in 1940-41 before moving on to the QHL's Montreal Senior Canadiens. Dheere scored three points and did not look out of place during his 11-game stint with the Habs but was unable to keep his place in the line-up.

Following his brief tenure in the NHL, Dheere played with the Montreal RCAF then spent the 1944-45 season in military service. When he returned to the game he spent a year with the Hull Volants of the Quebec League before settling down in the USHL for five years. Dheere notched two 20-goal seasons in the league before spending nearly two years in the PCHL with the Tacoma Rockets. He retired in 1953 after splitting two seasons with the senior Vernon Canadians and Melville Millionaires.
