Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Bert Hirschfeld
Left-winger Bert Hirschfeld played briefly with the Montreal Canadiens in the 40s and 50s. He was a fine goal scorer and playmaker during a lengthy career spent mostly in the minors and senior leagues.

The Halifax native played junior with the local St. Mary's club. In 1948-49 he caught the attention of the Habs when he scored 32 goals for the senior Montreal Royals. After a good start with the AHL's Cincinnati Mohawks in 1949-50, Hirschfeld was recalled to the Canadiens where he dressed for 13 regular season games and scored a goal in five playoff matches.

In 1950-51 Hirschfeld was a solid utility player for 20 games in Montreal before he was returned to the minors. An off-season trade to the Detroit Red Wings only resulted in a change of AHL sweaters. Beginning in 1955-56 the veteran forward joined the NBSHL and excelled in Moncton, Campbellton. He eventually ended up with Halifax of the Nova Scotia senior circuit and was a regular for four seasons before retiring in 1962. Following his retirement, Hirschfeld stepped behind the bench for one year to guide the senior Halifax Tartans.
