Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Farrand Gillie
Farrand Gillie played one game with the Detroit Cougars in 1928-29. He was versatile competitor who made himself useful at left-wing or on defence. Most of his career was spent in the minors or playing senior hockey.

Born in Cornwall, Ontario Gillie first drew attention to himself with the Detroit Olympics of the Can-Pro League in 1927-28. He was a handy fill-in for one game when the Cougars were short a player the next year. Gillie was a regular on the Olympics for four more years and was on hand when the team joined the IAHL in 1929-30.

In October, 1932, Gillie's rights were transferred to the London Tecumsehs as compensation for the Olympics' signing of free agent Gord Brydson. Gillie played four more years in the IAHL with London, Windsor and Rochester before injuries forced him to sit out the 1936-37 season. He returned to play with the Cornwall Flyers of the Quebec Senior League in 1937-38 then spent a year with the Brighton Tigers of Britain. Gillie retired in 1942 after playing three more years in the QSHL with Cornwall.
