Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Albert Holway
Albert "Toots" Holway played NHL hockey for five years beginning in 1923-24 with the Toronto St. Pats, the pre-cursors to what are now the Maple Leafs. The team played in the old Mutual Street Arena in downtown Toronto where the ice dimensions in those days were considerably larger than today. The rink measured 230 feet by 90 feet, as opposed to today's standard of 200 feet by 85 feet.

During that first year with the St. Pats, Holway played in six games, scoring once. The following year, he played 25 games, scoring two goals and two assists. After 12 games with the St. Pats in 1925-26, Holway went to the Montreal Maroons where he played 17 games and won a Stanley Cup championship that spring. He remained on the Maroons' roster for 13 games the following year before moving on to the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1928-29 where he scored four goals in 44 games. That marked the end of Holway's NHL career but from there he went on to join the London Tecumsehs of the IHL, and in 1934 was a player-coach, but he missed much of the season due to stomach ulcers.

Holway also had brief stints with the Seattle Eskimos of the PCHL, the Cleveland Falcons of the IAHL and the Cleveland Barons of the AHL, before hanging up the blades during the 1945-46 season.
